DEPA (Public Gas Supply, Greek: Δημόσια Επιχείρηση Αερίου – ΔΕΠΑ; English: Public Gas Corporation) is the public natural gas supply corporation of Greece. It operates within the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Development. In 2005, in order to liberalise the natural gas market, DESFA SA was created as a fully owned subsidiary to transport natural gas within Greece. Since then, DEPA sells gas to large consumers and to the gas supply companies. Natural gas is imported by pipelines from Bulgaria and Turkey and by liquefied natural gas at the Revithoussa LNG Terminal.
DEPA is the company that introduced natural gas to Greece implementing a big energy investment.
DEPA with its long presence in the Greek market is a modern and competitive group of companies with a dynamic presence in the energy sector and substantial contribution to the development of the Greek economy, the protection of the environment and the improvement of the quality of life of the local communities.
With the continuous expansions of the natural gas pipelines and the establishment of new Natural Gas Supply Companies (EPAs), DEPA Group is bringing natural gas to more and more regions of the country.
Having entered into long-term pipeline natural gas and LNG supply contracts, it supports the supply sufficiency and security of the country and at the same time it develops significant initiatives so that Greece can play an essential role as a hub of natural gas transit to Europe from countries with rich natural gas deposits.
