Transitgas is a key link for Switzerland and Europe. The Transitgas system consists of approximately 300 km of pipelines crossing central Switzerland. It connects gas markets in Germany and France to Italy and is at the same time the infrastructure supplying gas into Switzerland for domestic consumption.

The Transitgas system currently only flows gas from North to South but a project is under study to modify the system in order to enable South to North flows as well. The venture is to create supply opportunities from the South for Switzerland and Northwest Europe and enable a fully functional market providing for easy gas transfers between the gas trading places in Germany, Italy, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and the UK. Close cooperation with Italian and German transmission system operators Snam and Open Grid Europe will facilitate smooth and coordinated implementation of the project and the development of products promoting transfers between the gas trading places.
