EU Commission accepts RWE's formal commitment
Process of selling gas transport network will now start
Before the decision was made, one of the measures taken was a "market test", which entailed market participants evaluating the company's formal commitment. This market test was brought to a successful conclusion. RWE will now begin the process of selling the German gas transport network within the set time periods.
The gas transport network is around 4,000 km long and is located in the Federal States of North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony. In total, some 40,000 km of pipeline are in operation in Germany.
