Gas & Power
Galp is present in the marketing activities of natural gas and electricity, as well as in the distribution of natural gas. Through the power segment, Galp also operates cogenerations, with emphasis on the units installed in the Sines and Matosinhos refineries.
Supply of natural gas and electricity
Galp is one of the main suppliers of natural gas in Portugal and accounts for most of the imported natural gas. The natural gas supply activity has been progressively integrated with the marketing of electricity through a combined offer, to which oil products are added.
Regulated distribution infrastructure
Galp, through its subsidiary Galp Gás Natural Distribuição S.A., holds stakes in nine natural gas distributors.
At the end of 2017, the distribution network had 12,740 km.
Through its portfolio of cogeneration plants, Galp currently has, in Portugal, an installed capacity for electricity generation of 173 MW, with the most relevant ones being installed in the Sines and Matosinhos refineries.
These are a major source of natural gas consumption, as well as an important energy source for the refineries’ operation.
