DESFA presents development plan until 2032: 1.27 billion euros to consolidate Greece’s role as supply gateway for CEE

The Ten-Year Development Plan (TYDP) of Greece’s Natural Gas System Operator DESFA for the period 2023-2032 includes projects with a total budget of 1.27 billion euros, being significantly enhanced (+55 per cent) compared to the corresponding previous investment plan, in order to strengthen the provision of uninterrupted capacity to all the users, allowing at the same time increased exports of natural gas from Greece to the wider region, towards the consolidation of the country as a natural gas supply gateway for Southeast and Central Europe.

In particular, the TYDP under consultation includes new projects amounting to 458 million euros of which 430 million euros concern investments to increase the capacity of the system by strengthening the flexibility of the network and decongesting critical sections of the company, which will ensure the optimal utilisation and coordinated operation of the existing, under construction and planned infrastructures (TAP, ICGB, FSRU Alexandroupolis, Dioriga Gas and so on).

Among these projects, the “Duplication of the YP Karperi – Komotini branch” stands out, through the construction of a 215 kilometres long new pipeline, with a budget of 290 million euros parallel to the existing network. The new pipeline will be 100 per cent ready for the transport of hydrogen, while it will have multiple benefits for the Greek market. In particular, it will ensure the provision of uninterrupted capacity to and from the Virtual Trading Point (VTP) at all Entry and Exit Points of the specific branch.
