In order to continue the planning of establishing new capacities for high calorific gas, supplementary terms and conditions as well as preliminary agreements can be found on the websites of the five more capacity TSOs since 5 January 2017. The conclusion of a preliminary agreement will provide transport customers as well as the more capacity TSOs with the needed planning security and forms a basis for the annual auction on 6 March 2017.
The more capacity TSOs offer the opportunity to conclude preliminary agreements to ensure the offer of your needed capacities. For this purpose, transport customers should send a signed copy of the preliminary agreement including the total requests per gas year and market area border (column 2 of table ‘existing capacities’ of Annex 1) to the TSO concerned until 27 January 2017, 23:59 (in-box at relevant TSO). The preliminary agreement will then be concluded on the basis of the completed tables 1 and 2 of Annex 1.
The preliminary agreement is a bi-lateral agreement between the transport customer and one of the five more capacity partners Fluxys Deutschland GmbH, GASCADE Gastransport GmbH, Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH, NEL Gastransport GmbH and ONTRAS Gastransport GmbH. Within this agreement, the transport customer commits to bid for a specified amount of capacity and the respective more capacity TSO commits to offer the respective capacity in the auctions.
