The Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators MEDREG is organising a training for the Egyptian Gas Regulator GasReg on the topic of monitoring the transmission and distribution segments of the Egyptian gas market. The event, to be held on 24 September in Paris, France, aims at reinforcing the Egyptian Gas Regulator’s capacity as a leverage for the development of the Egyptian gas market, and as a follow up to the support activities of the latest years.
Held back to back with the GAS Working Group in Paris on 24 September, the training will analyse the fundamentals of the regulator’s role in shaping the internal gas market, addressing how market monitoring is crucial for the gas market development.

After a general overview of the development of the wholesale gas market in the EU, the training will deepen the different tools, techniques and procedures applied for the monitoring of distribution and transmission companies from a technical, economical and legal perspective, including a reference to the network codes approval procedures.

MEDREG is the Association of Mediterranean Energy Regulators, which brings together 27 regulators from 23 countries, spanning the European Union (EU), the Balkans and North Africa. Mediterranean regulators work together to promote greater compatibility of the regional energy markets and legislation, seeking progressive market integration in the Euro-Mediterranean basin.

MEDREG promotes a transparent, stable and compatible regulatory framework in the Mediterranean Region fostering infrastructure investments, consumer protection, and enhanced energy cooperation. Based on a bottom-up approach, MEDREG acts as a collaborative platform for regulators from the Northern and the Southern shore of the Mediterranean to exchange technical knowledge and good practices while supporting each other to reinforce their regulatory capacity.
The Association is co-funded by the European Union and benefits from the financial contribution of its members.
