The following table contains the main quantitative indicators in the segment:

Quantitative data 30-Jun-10 30-Jun-11 Change % change
Gas volumes distributed (millions of m) 1,475.6 1,351.7 -123.9 -8.4%
Gas volumes sold (millions of m) 1,680.2 1,688.5 +8.3 +0.5%
- of which trading volumes 368.6 503.0 +134.4 +36.5%
Heat volumes supplied (GWht) 313.9 296.1 -17.8 -5.7%

The volumes of gas distributed, based on the same number of concessions managed, went from 1,475.6 million m in 2010 to 1,351.7 million m in 2011, a fall of 8.4%. This fall was sharper than the fall in demand for natural gas recorded domestically, which was equal to 7.9%, mainly due to the weather, since average temperatures were higher than in the same period of the previous year.

The volumes of gas sold, on the other hand, went from 1,680.2 million m in the first half of 2010 to 1,688.5 million m in 2011, an increase of 0.5% compared with the first half of 2010 as a result of the increase in volumes traded, in spite of the aforementioned effect of the weather.

The volumes of heat supplied went from 313.9 GWht in 2010 to 296.1 GWht in the first six months of 2011, with a 5.7% decrease, which was also connected to the higher average temperatures recorded in the first half of 2011, resulting in lower heat consumption.
