EBRD seeking consultant to support capacity building at Albania’s Albgaz

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) said on Thursday it is seeking a consultant to provide capacity building assistance for Albania’s state-owned transmission system operator Albgaz. “The assignment is expected to start in May and has an estimated overall duration of 9 months,” the EBRD said in a statement. The main objectives of the assignment are: capacity building of Albgaz with a view to strengthening its legal and regulatory unit; tasks to operationalise the tariff methodology and tariffs; tasks to operationalise the network code (in particular, facilitating access to the network, including capacity allocation and balancing); and assistance to enhance network planning functions within Albgaz (including planning capital expenditure), according to the statement. The estimated cost of the assignment is 290,000 euro ($354,211) and it is expected to be funded by the EBRD Shareholder Special Fund. Albgaz, the natural gas transmission system operator for Albania, was established in January 2017 and is responsible for the operation, development and maintenance of the country’s gas transmission, distribution, storage, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure. Albania does not have a significant natural gas production and is currently not connected with any of the regional natural gas networks. The Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is expected to be a cornerstone of Albania’s gasification.
