Getting the Deal Through: Gas Regulation in 36 jurisdictions worldwide 2011
As a consequence of the transposition of Directive No. 2003/55/EC, the Portuguese natural gas sector suffered a deep restructuring in 2006. Alongside the unbundling of the activities of transport, distribution and trading, the liberalisation of the trading activity to a free market regime was one of the measures taken (last resource trading is, however, subject to regulation). Portugal does not produce natural gas, importing 100 per cent of the consumed gas from the preferential markets of Algeria and Nigeria (LNG).
