Renewal Villariès-Albi (REVA)


Built in 1974, the pipeline connecting the municipalities of Villaries (31) and Albi (81) is due to undergo a renewal project in order to ensure its safety and to maintain our gas transport grid. In order to comply with the regulatory and technical requirements, Teréga has decided to modernise and adapt the pipeline located between the municipalities of Villariès (31) and Albi (81).

Objectifs du projet

To successfully complete the REVA project, Teréga is voluntarily organising a prior public consultation in early 2022.The consultation takes place at the stage of researching the project's route. It will be optimised according to its findings. The REVA project thus meets several objectives:

Grid modernisation

Modernising and adapting the natural gas grid between Villariès and Albi, prioritising a route more favourable to the local area.


Maintaining the current supplies to the 14 public distribution grids and 7 industrial customers.


Contributing to the development of renewable gases thanks to the connection of NGV stations (St Sulpice) and methanisation units (Trifyl).

REVA: a local project to modernise our grid

With more than 70 km of pipeline to renew between the municipalities of Villariès (31) and Albi (81), the REVA project (Villariès-Albi Renewal) meets the challenge of modernising and securing our gas transport infrastructures in Occitanie. Built in 1974, the pipeline connecting the two municipalities needs to be replaced in order to meet the regulatory and technical requirements. As for all projects for renewing and modernising our infrastructure, Teréga is contributing to the development of the regions. For the REVA project, this includes connecting a methanisation station (Trifyl) and connecting an NGV station within the municipality of Saint-Sulpice-la-Pointe (81).

REVA schedule

A voluntary approach by Teréga to enrich its project

As for any development project, building a new gas grid has effects on the areas that is crosses, during the building work phase in particular. That is why Teréga wants to enable all interested parties to contribute to its preparation.

To do so, Teréga has chosen to voluntarily organise a prior public consultation from 31 January to 6 March 2022 in accordance with the principles of the Environmental Code. This measure complements the regional dialogue already begun in 2020 as part of the studies with nearly 70 local actors (local authorities, chambers of agriculture, State administrative authorities and services).

The consultation will, in particular, be the opportunity to:

  • share the lessons learned of the studies which have led to the identification of the preferred corridor of 100 metres for the gas pipeline,

  • identify the local issues to take into account in researching the route (sensitive issues to avoid, opportunities  to take into account, etc.),

  • define those measures likely, firstly, to favour the smooth execution of the work and secondly, the territorial integration of the pipeline over the long term,

  • establish what the arrangements for informing the public could be and permitting input from them throughout the project.

A assessment was made by Teréga presenting the measures intended in the light of the lessons learned from the consultation.

A consultation open to all

The consultation is open to any interested person, whether you are directly affected (owners and farmers of the land crossed, neighbours, etc.) or otherwise.

It is in line with the spirit of the main principles issued by the national commission on public debate:

  • Transparency of the information and responses given by the commissioning client.

  • Equivalence of treatment for all. Each person can participate and express themselves in the same way, whatever their status (simple citizen, elected representative, representative of an association, etc.).

  • Argumentation of the opinions expressed: consultation favours an exchange of points of view supported by reasons about the project.
