OUR EXPERTISE The transportation and storage of energy in the form of gas.
With more than 70 years of experience, TIGF possesses a proven expertise
in the 2 key strategic and complementary activities within the energy market:
the transportation and storage of gas.
These are essential to ensure the continuity of energy supplies
and enable TIGF to offer an excellent public service.

TRANSPORT

The TIGF pipeline grid distributes high volumes of gas from one point
in the network to another. The gas can either be used directly
by customers connected to the network or is transported
to distribution grids supplying consumers in urban areas.
124 delivery points for industrial distribution
326 delivery points for public distribution
2 links with Spain

Storage

The storage sites operated by TIGF are capable of storing huge amounts
of energy. This means that they are able to respond to seasonable demand
and subsequently guarantee a continuous energy supply.
2 underground storage sites
in groundwater reservoirs :
Lussagnet (Les Landes)
Izaute (The Gers)

GAS, A SOURCE OF ENERGY WITH MANY ADVANTAGES.

Gas, the core business of TIGF, is the energy source of the future.
Whether we're talking about natural gas or renewable gas,
it's abundant, readily available, competitive and has low CO2   emissions.
OUR NETWORK A key geographical location
As a market leader in territorial and national energy supplies, TIGF occupies
a strategic position in Europe; at the center of the interconnections
between France and Spain, between the gas reserves of the North Sea and Algeria.

EXPANDING OUR TERRITORIAL NETWORK

The Corsica project

As part of the consultation process concerning the selection of a provider to develop and exploit a natural gas infrastructure in Corsica, TIGF has put forward it's candidacy together with one of it's shareholders, SNAM, a natural gas transmission organisation.


TIGF will therefore be responsible for the development of a transport network linking Bastia to Ajaccio.


If this project proves to be successful, it will provide TIGF with valuable insights which will enable them to expand their current network.
