GDF SUEZ signs a cooperation agreement with theTunisian Company of Electricity and Gas
GDF SUEZ has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Société Tunisienne de l’Electricité et du Gaz (Tunisian Company of Electricity and Gas – STEG) to develop cooperation between the two groups. The agreement, signed by Jean-Claude Depail, GDF SUEZ Executive Vice President in charge of the Infrastructures business line, and Rachid Ben Daly Hassen, Chairman and CEO of STEG, aims to renew the cooperative relationship which led to several programmes in the 1990s.
The first of the exchanges planned for 2015 will focus on providing training to STEG employees on the gas supply chain, technical aspects of gas facilities, and safety. This will be supplemented with technical support services in gas transport and distribution.
The agreement also provides for GDF SUEZ to give STEG further support in the form of strategic reflection on the developing energy mix in Tunisia. GDF SUEZ is delighted to have renewed its cooperation with Tunisia, a country which is experiencing growing energy demands and which is looking to guarantee the security of its supply.
