aim to facilitate the transport
of energy and to accelerate
the energy transition.
TIGF has installed a biomethane injection station in Lot et Garonne (47), the largest biomethane injection capacity in France to date.
3 new projects have been commissioned and a number of other projects are in the early stages of research.
These projects are an integral part of the multi-year programme of energy sources (with an injection of 8TWh into the grid by 2023).
TIGF is carrying out an extensive research programme into the installation of NGV stations in France in order to bring France up to the same level as their European counterparts (250 public distribution stations by the end of 2020).
TIGF collaborates with 8 partners on the Jupiter 1000 demonstrator project (Fos-sur-Mer) a project that solves the problem of storing surplus energy generated from renewable sources.
This project offers a pathway to the future at global level and, with the installation of it's transport and storage infrastructure, TIGF establishes itself as the vital link with Power to Gas.
TIGF monitors the geological storage of CO2 very closely and is looking at ways to establish themselves as market leaders in this line of business.
They are actively working on a research programme which would enable them to recycle CO2 and transform it into methane.
Avoid, reduce and compensateThis method, already implemented in the TIGF pipeline grid, is the essence of the Be Positive programme. It covers the impact on air, water, the ground, biodiversity, the landscape and stakeholders...

The aim of this fully integrated environmental programme implemented by TIGF is to reduce their carbon footprint to zero across all business activities by 2020.
The objectives of the Be Positive programme include:
The objective of this project is to transport gas from the TIGF zone to the South-East of France when energy supplies are insufficient in this area.
The RGM project developed by TIGF focuses on decongesting this zone and by doing so facilitating the transport of gas between the North and the South of France.
STEP is an energy solidarity project that will increase supply security.
Its aim is to create a cross-border interconnected gas network between France and Spain.
As part of this project, TIGF is responsible for the design, construction, and deployment of a large-scale transport pipeline linking its Barbaira compression site in the Aude region of France to Perthus on the French-Spanish border.
In order to safeguard the integrity, availability of it's installations and adapt to new needs, TIGF introduced a model that helps them to decide in which area of their infrastructure to invest
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.
TIGF has installed a further 2 wells at it's storage capacity in Lussagnet which allow high speed extraction and injection.
They provide extra flexibility in terms of speed and volume.
In 2016 TIGF launched a mobile app which enables them to anticipate the requirements of their customers.
It offers simple access to real time information about the TIGF public service network (availability, maintenance and reductions, allocations, consumption per zone, expected imbalances, service prices, the level of gas in transit).
In 2016 TIGF developed and launched fan innovative training programme specifically designed to reinforce the relationship with their operational counterparts and shippers.
The training sessions consist of a one day themed workshop in Paris with the aim to offer guidance, to provide a high level of support and to help their customers in their day-to-day management (programming, allocations, balancing, invoicing).
TIGF’s attention to the safety of people and plant
is anchored in the very structure of the company’s
organisation. This makes them one of the most
responsible industrial operators in the sector.
The safety of our staff and the integrity
of our infrastructures is an absolute priority.
