Market development groups

We are inviting our customers to join development groups, which will help the company to improve its services and the gas market as a whole. 

There are two development groups: the wholesale market development group, an English-language group for registered shippers, traders, end-users of the transmission system, biogas/LNG suppliers and gas transmission operations, and the retail market development group, a Finnish-language group for registered retailers and distribution network operators. 

Something is going on...
