We are nearing the end of 2019, and there are less than two weeks until the gas market is opened.
The completion of the Balticconnector gas pipeline, the key building block of the new gas market, was celebrated last week with a commissioning ceremony of the pipeline. The presidents of Finland and Estonia honoured the ceremony with their presence, a sign of the significance of the project. Congratulations, once more, to the project team for their excellent performance!
As the project for opening the market ends at the turn of the year, the continuous process for developing the open market will begin. We welcome our customers and stakeholders in advance to the gas market information event, scheduled for 12 February 2020, to give feedback on the opening of the market, to hear the latest news about the development of the market and of customer operations, and to get a view of the operations of the Gasgrid Finland Oy gas transmission system operator, which will begin on 1 January 2020.
On behalf of the Finnish Gas Transmission Services and the entire open market development team, I thank all our stakeholders for their excellent collaboration in 2019.
You can read more about these and other gas market news in our December newsletter.
Happy holidays! Let’s begin the new year with curious minds!
Best regards and further information
