The consortium now owns a 25% interest in GRTgaz for EUR1.11bn.

Through this investment, the consortium intends to support GRTgaz’s development plan for the next ten years, at a time when Europe has major infrastructure needs.

Within this partnership, GRTgaz will extend its activities beyond France by the acquisition of the GDF SUEZ equity stakes in European transmission operators in Germany.

The European transmission operators include GRTgaz Deutschland and MEGAL in Germany and BOG in Austria.
