Investments to upgrade Scotia Gas Network's gas distribution networks – 2014-17
The project is part of the Promoter’s on-going investment programme to upgrade the gas distribution networks in its concession areas. The investments subject to financing are focused on the replacement of metallic pipes by polyethylene pipes, which will permit a reduction in methane leaks, safety improvements and better management of peak demands, and new customer connections.
Current information suggests that the project components will fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive (2011/92/EU), requiring the competent authority to determine the need for an EIA in line with the Directive.
The investments under the project are subject to the national and EU procurement provisions defined for entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors.
Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
