BBL Company starts Open Season to investigate the need for expansion of the BBL

Press release

BBL Company will investigate market interest for more transmission capacity through an Open Season. BBL Company has decided to do so because market parties and studies indicate that there is a need for more gas transmission capacity between the Continent and the United Kingdom. If sufficient interest from market parties exists, BBL will investigate the possibilities to expand the BBL pipeline.

It is anticipated by the partners of BBL Company to take a final investment decision at the earliest date late 2007, provided there is a positive business case based on firm commitments from shippers.

More information about the Open Season is described in the brochure ‘Open Season BBL’, that can be downloaded from the website.
If you are interested in participating in the Open Season, please complete and return the relevant Confidentiality Agreement also to be downloaded from the website of BBL Company.
