On 30 December 2015, Engie obtained the partial annulment of the decision rendered on 17 October 2013 by the French Energy Regulatory Commission, relating to the marketing rules regarding transmission capacities at GRTgaz’s North-South link. This annulment, which will have retroactive effects, censors the possibility for large natural gas consumer sites to re-sell capacity they do not need.
The provisions annulled by the French Conseil d’Etat had previously been amended by the Energy Regulatory Commission on 23 January 2014, following an administrative appeal by Engie.
Partner Michel Guénaire and associate Pierre-Adrien Lienhardt represented Engie before the Energy Regulatory Commission and before the Conseil d’Etat.
