Commission proposes update to Gas Directive


Today (November 8 2017) the European Commission has proposed to update the EU Gas Directive, in order to ensure that all major gas pipelines entering EU territory comply with EU rules, are operated with the same levels of transparency, are accessible to other operators, and are operated in an efficient way. The proposal aims to improve the functioning of the EU internal gas market, increase competition between suppliers, and boost Europe's energy security.
