Access of ELVAL (Hellenic Aluminium Industry SA) to DEPA’s networks ELVAL SA, as of November 1 and for two months, shall supply its facilities at Oinofyta with natural gas transmitted by the company via the distribution networks belonging to DEPA SA. Furthermore, another company has requested access to DEPA’s networks without, though, finally proceeding with the implementation of its intention.
The transmission of natural gas by another (third) company apart from DEPA and the interest shown by the market for similar initiatives constitute tangible proof of the full deregulation of the natural gas wholesale market in our country. On this occasion, DEPA’s President and CEO, Mr. H. Sahinis, made the following statement:
“We are especially satisfied that DEPA, apart from its over-the-time contribution to the development of infrastructures and the natural gas market, in general, in Greece, has the opportunity to further contribute to the wholesale market making its networks accessible to other companies wishing to transmit gas in order to supply their facilities or/ and customers.
