In 2003 naturgas energia Group, formerly Naturcorp, was a public company comprised of four gas entities which operated in the field of natural gas distribution in the Basque Country.
The Basque Government decided to privatize the Group, which was carried out by means of a public tender. Hidrocantabrico won the privatization tender and took over the majority of the shares in the former Grupo Naturcorp.
In July 2004, The Portuguese EDP (Energias de Portugal), shareholder of Hidrocantábrico, acquired an important additional stake and gained control over 95% of Hidrocantabrico Group, presently hc energía.
Between 2005 and 2006, EDP concluded the process of taking over the local Basque gas distributors, by acquiring Gas Hernani, Gas Pasaia, Bilbogas and Gasnalsa. The company invested 82 million euros and integrated the networks and human teams to the structure of the Group.
Subsequently, in 2008, it also bought the natural gas distribution company of Mérida, the regional capital of Extremadura.
Finally, EDP completed the purchase of the Cantabria and Murcia natural gas distributors in December 2009.
