Extracts from the press conference by Neelie Kroes on a consultation by the EC of gas market players on the commitments offered by GDF Suez to boost competition in the French market

93 views

The EC is inviting comments from interested parties on commitments offered by the French energy company GDF Suez to remedy concerns that it might have infringed EC Treaty rules on abuse of a dominant market position in the gas sector. The Commission was concerned that GDF Suez might be closing off competitors from access to gas import capacity into France. Whilst not acknowledging any infringement, GDF Suez proposed to address the Commission's concerns through a major structural reduction in its long-term reservations of gas import capacity into France. Neelie Kroes, Commissioner in charge of Competition, said that the great advantage for French gas consumers is that it will be easier for potential competitors to enter the French gas market, and that would contribute to delivering the benefits of the single market to French energy consumer in terms of greater choice of gas supplier and more competition on prices.
