Established in 15 departments in the far South-West of France, Teréga occupies a strategic position in the territories and at the heart of Europe. Its grid, with a dense local network interconnecting with foreign networks, plays a key role in meeting the French and European energy challenges.
While the Teréga grid has traditionally allowed the movement of Norwegian gas to supply Spain and Portugal, the exceptional nature of the current situation and the energy supply tensions liked to the war in Ukraine have transformed and heightened the role played by gas infrastructures in recent weeks. The Pirineos interconnection point, operated by Teréga, is currently recording significant South-North flows of more than 200 GWh/d on average, with peaks nearing 220 GWh/d out of a possible maximum of 225 GWh/d.
As a gas transport operator, Teréga contributes to the security of supply in France, and is developing solutions to ensure that storage facilities are well stocked, meaning gas supplies can be guaranteed through to next winter, despite the current situation which has arisen from the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
