The company aims at the short-term optimization of the Swiss natural gas procurement. 100% of the shares in SET are held by Swissgas, whereof 66% were transfered as subparticipation to EGO, EGZ, Gaznat and GVM.
Together with the four Swiss regional suppliers - Erdgas Ostschweiz AG, Erdgas Zentralschweiz AG, Gasverbund Mittelland AG, Gaznat SA - Swissgas ensures the supply of natural gas in Switzerland mainly by longterm contracs.
The supply of natural gas is now being supplemented wit the access to the European spot markets. For that purpose, Swiss Energy Trading operates a natural gas trading platform which is shared by the four regional suppliers.
