DEPA Infrastructure revisions, for clarity, in Parliament, sale deadline nearing

A legislative revision prepared by the energy ministry for DEPA Infrastructure, containing measures that aim to offer greater clarity to bidders in the ongoing sale of the gas company, has been submitted to Parliament.

DEPA Infrastructure suitors face a July 15 second-round deadline for binding bids.

The legislative revision includes provisions for 30-year extensions of gas distribution licenses as well as the creation of a new mechanism enabling required revenue recovery underperformance by one of the country’s three EDA distribution company to be covered by the other EDA companies, through revenue offsetting procedures concerning equivalent periods.

If this procedure fails to resolve required revenue recovery underperformances, then any discrepancy will be covered through  price adjustments at all three EDA companies.
