GRDF is the main operator of the natural gas distribution network in France.
Our job is to design, build, operate, maintain and develop this network.
This infrastructure measures nearly 200,000 km and is the longest natural gas network in Europe: 5 times around the Earth.

This network, a key element of the energy transition, also meets the need for the development of biomethane, Natural Gas Vehicle and Power-to-Gas.

Our 12,000 employees work in 9,500 municipalities to enable 11 million households and businesses in France to benefit from access to our network.

They provide 24/7 troubleshooting services, carry out technical services such as network maintenance and meter readings, take care of the connection to the network and guarantee the quality and continuity of the energy delivered, whatever your supplier.

Our specificities in the world of French companies:
– A wholly-owned subsidiary of the ENGIE Group, we are financially and administratively independent in order to guarantee objectivity, transparency, non-discrimination and confidentiality towards all energy suppliers
– We manage the gas network on behalf of the local communities that own it
– The majority of our employees belong to the “Common Service” shared with our cousin ERDF and therefore has double logo pay slips (like our blue cars)
– Our customers are invoiced by the energy suppliers who pay us the routing rate
– The price of our services is set by the CRE, Commission de Régulation de l’Energie, an independent administrative authority responsible for ensuring the smooth functioning of the electricity and gas markets in France.
