Warsaw, April 15 - Neftegaz.RU.PGNiG has filed an appeal against the judgment of the General Court of the EU of February 2nd 2022, which dismissed the company’s complaint against the European Commission’s decision of 2018 accepting Gazprom’s proposed commitments to discontinue abusive market behaviour in EU countries.

The company stated:
  • PGNiG upholds its negative opinion on Gazprom’s commitments made as part of the settlement agreement ending the EC’s antitrust proceedings
  • The company is of the opinion that they have failed to restore competitive conditions in the CEE gas market
  • PGNiG hopes that the Court of Justice of the EU will concur with the arguments presented in the appeal, and that Gazprom’s practices involving abuse of its dominant position will meet with strong reaction from the EC to really provide a level playing field for competitors in Europe’s gas market.
Earlier, the EU Court of General Jurisdiction dismissed the claim of the Poland´s concern PGNiG demanding to annul the decision of the European Commission on the antimonopoly case against Gazprom, adopted in May 2018.

After long consideration, the EC concluded the investigation in May 2018 levying no fines on Gazprom, but imposing a number of obligations, violation of which could incur punitive sanctions of up to 10% of the company's global turnover.

As part of these obligations, Gazprom had to remove barriers to cross-border resale of gas in Central and Eastern Europe.
Customers from the region were also given the right to demand lower gas prices from Gazprom if they were not in line with competitive prices in Western Europe.
