PGNiG actions in OPAL pipeline and Gazprom antitrust case

In the opinion of PGNiG SA, both the decisions by the European Commission and by the German energy regulator Bundesnetzagentur to make capacity of the OPAL gas pipeline available to Gazprom and the European Commission’s decision regarding the abuse of monopolistic position by Gazprom constitute a breach of the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and Directive 2009/73/WE concerning common rules for the internal market. These decisions pose a real threat to the stability of gas supplies to Central and Eastern Europe.

PGNiG SA is ready to sue both – the decision of the European Commission and the decision of Bundesnetzagentur. PGNiG Supply and Trading GmbH, a PGNiG subsidiary operating in the German market, may be involved in the planned action.
