The energy company Gas Natural Group has strengthened its presence in continental Europe to start marketing gas in Germany, reported a company sources.
The gas company opened a sales office in Cologne (Germany) earlier this year and has already closed the first contracts to supply gas to industrial customers in the next three years.
The entry into Germany due to the expansion strategy in the European market, which began with the opening of Europe Natural Gas in France in late 2004.
In addition to entering Germany, the multinational, also through its subsidiary Gas Natural Europe, is growing in countries like Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
The company started in 2010 its activities in Belgium and Luxembourg, and from late 2011 also operates in the Netherlands, and in all these countries serves nearly two hundred gas supply points.
Although the numbers are still modest, Natural Gas intends to triple its portfolio in the medium term in the coming years in Western Europe.
And, given the fall in energy demand in Spain and government regulatory changes, the company is increasingly putting its strategy abroad.
The energy multinational Fenosa Gas won 407 million euros in the first quarter, up 5.2% over the same period of 2011, a wave of international business.
Natural gas has an established presence in Italy, where he has 61 industrial customers, but in early May announced it had awarded a contract for 50 million euros over two years to supply natural gas to the Paris region.
The French contract represents a turning point for the company’s presence on the European continent, as Natural Gas will provide service to most points of supply of public facilities in 208 municipalities in the Paris region.
A total Natural Gas in the country already has nearly 2,000 customers in various fields, from industrial companies and paper mills and chemical, to local authorities and the public sector.
The company headed by Salvador Gabarro is one of the leading multinationals in the sector of electricity and gas, is present in 27 countries and has nearly 20 million customers and an installed capacity of 15.4 gigawatts.
