GAS
This Group assesses the current status of natural gas and LNG markets in Mediterranean countries, their relevant regulatory frameworks and possible evolutions. The GAS Group elaborates Guidelines of Good Practice (GGP) and recommendations that could lead to the development of an integrated, competitive, secure and effective gas market in the region.

Working Group on Gas Issues (GAS)
Objectives 2015-2020
  • Establishment of an integrated gas market framework; development of gas infrastructures plans in MEDREG countries detailing existing infrastructures and new investments needs
  • Identify proper means for increasing member countries’ security of supply through an increased diversification of gas sources and routes, as well as the development of liquid markets.
  • Assess the evolution of cross-border exchange capacities and gas storage, which are the steps for a better market integration. Monitoring of the transparency of market information and services, as well as the quality of supply to consumers
  • Promote the creation of a regional cooperation network among Mediterranean gas TSOs on the model of Med-TSO in the gas sector.
Main Activities
  • Study the present and future infrastructure needs from the technical, economic and financial perspectives, to reach a double objective:
    1) the establishment of a regional integrated gas market;
    2) the improvement of the security of supply within the region
  • Study methodologies for non-discriminatory TPA to gas infrastructure (including definition of gas transport/transit services, congestion management, UIOLI provisions, operational issues, role, responsibilities and rights of the shippers and system operators)
  • Analyse cross-border capacities and gas storage in the context of increasing market integration
  • Benchmark of the tariff methodologies in MEDREG countries: improve and expand national tariff methodologies
