BELGIUM PUSHES ROLE AS TRANSIT LINK FOR GAS TRADE

Belgium is determined to take advantage of its strategic position at the heart of Europe to become a major transportation link in the growing international gas trade. To this end, Belgian gas utility Distrigaz plans to capitalize on its domestic pipeline network to serve international markets. At the same time, the company will focus on integrating its transportation activities with its gas merchant role at home. Ultimately, says Distrigaz, the volume of gas moving through Belgium could double within a decade. It estimates the volume will reach 15 billion cu m this year (1995), compared with Belgian gas consumption of 11 billion cu m in 1994 -- all of it imported. The company's two-pronged strategy was outlined at the Association of Gas Technicians conference at Lille, France, by Distrigaz Deputy Administrator Jean-Pierre Depaemelaere.
