Creditors want DEPA out of natural gas retail sector


Greece’s creditors are pressing for the withdrawal of the Public Gas Corporation (DEPA) from the natural gas retail market, and quickly too, according to information confirmed by sources from within DEPA.

Pressure in this direction started after the country’s creditors became aware of the corporation’s strategy to enter the retail market by setting up a subsidiary, which fueled the reaction by DEPA’s partners in the three local retail companies (EPA) in Athens, Thessaloniki and Thessaly, namely ENI and Shell.
