PARIS, Nov. 22 -- France's Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) has submitted for government approval new rates for access to the French gas transmission networks of Gaz de France and Total SA and for use of LNG terminals.

The rates are intended to develop competition in France's gas market and to encourage infrastructure investment. They will apply for 2-years beginning Jan. 1, 2007.

The cost-plus rate structure is expected to lower overall gas transport prices in France by 1%.

The Energy Regulatory Commission said that, by encouraging investment, considering security expenses, improving the network managements' service offers, and reducing the average transport price, it aimed to ensure safe supplies and effective operation of the gas market, which will be fully opened in July 2007.
