Strategic Gas Reserve

AGGM was entrusted with the procurement and management of the Austrian strategic gas reserve by the amendment to the Austrian Gas Act 2011 (GWG) (Federal Law Gazette I No. 38/2022). Within the framework of a market-based, transparent, non-discriminatory and public tender procedure, 12.6 TWh of gas are to be procured from federal funds in order to increase the security of supply in the Austrian market areas East, Tyrol and Vorarlberg.
