Darren Reeve, Commercial Director of IUK said: ”Becoming a shareholder will allow us to play a part in the ongoing development of PRISMA and enable us to offer more capacity to the market and meet our obligations under the EU network codes.”
“Usage of PRISMA allows shippers to use in Slovenia the same tool as in many most developed natural gas markets. Thus, we provide the experience of the single EU natural gas market in simplified and more efficient manner. With the co-ownership of PRISMA we'd like to actively participate in the future development of the platform” said Matjaž Sušnik, Director of Economy Department, Plinovodi d.o.o.
