The Floene Group is the largest gas distribution network operatorin Portugal, through the participation and direct management of 9 Regional Gas Distribution Companies (ORD), present in 106 municipalities all across the country. It is, therefore, responsible for managing the medium and low-pressure gas distribution network, under a public service regime.
With a network mostly built in polyethylene (94%) and with an average age of less than 16 years, Floene has one of the most modern and efficient infrastructures in Europe, which allows it to ensure a completely safe supply and a quality service, complying with all the criteria established by ERSE and the sector-specific legislation.
Floene is also at the forefront of the decarbonisation of energy consumption and the energy transition, as it is prepared for the distribution of renewable gases. The polyethylene network allows the transport of green hydrogen and non-fossil gases such as biomethane. Thus, Floene asserts itself as a relevant player in the transition to a low carbon economy. Its aim is to grow and create value in a sustainable manner and thus contribute to the common good of the communities with the new energies of the future.
