With dynamically allocable capacity, the entry or exit capacities have an assignment restriction. This assignment restriction can vary and is marked with a number (dac-dac4). It means that only specific network points can be reached, although this capacity is fixed. In contrast, the virtual trading point is available on an interruptible basis, i.e. only when this is possible.
For marketing issues on PRISMA the german abbreviation dzK will be used.
This refers to a possible increase in technical capacity or future additional capacity which is provided through investments or the long-term optimization of the network and after a positive market test (at existing boundary transition and/or market-area transition points, by constructing one or more new boundary transition and/or market-area transition points, as physical counterflow capacity which was not previously offered).
Capacity offerings based on the network expansion measures that have been derived from the results of the market survey and the technical studies. The levels differ depending on the market area boundary (border crossing point) and can be viewed here.
The more capacity TSO will offer its existing capacities and new technical capacities as part of the 2017 annual auction in a multistage auction procedure in accordance with Art. 17 of the Network Code Gas Capacity Allocation Mechanisms. The auctions for existing capacities and new technical capacities will be held in parallel. New technical capacities are indicated separately by means of a suitable index or marketed by means of auxiliary points. Existing capacities and new technical capacities are offered with the Supplementary Terms and Conditions of Business at existing border crossing points. If the more capacity TSO offers multiple offering levels at a network point, it will create additional and identical network points in the form of auxiliary points on the primary capacity platform PRISMA and market a further offering level for each auxiliary point. Following the annual auction, the more capacity TSO will decide as part of an economic analysis which offering level is to apply as the basis for expansion. If a transport customer has made a successful bid on multiple offering levels, all bookings of new technical capacities that are not regarded further will be canceled by the more capacity TSO.
