Secretariat publishes opinion on certification of Moldovan gas transmission system operator Vestmoldtransgaz under Third Energy Package
Today, the Energy Community Secretariat published its Opinion 2/21 on the certification of the Moldovan gas transmission system operator Vestmoldtransgaz under the Third Energy Package. Before its commercial operation date (envisaged for 1 October 2021), Vestmoldtransgaz is not yet performing actual transmission services, but fulfills other important tasks of a transmission system operator. The Opinion largely supports the certification of Vestmoldtransgaz in line with the Moldovan regulatory authority’s (ANRE) Preliminary Decision.
As required under Article 10 of Directive 2009/73/EC and Article 3 of Regulation (EC) 715/2009, ANRE is to adopt a final certification decision, taking the utmost account of the opinion of the Secretariat.
