Primary capacity platform PRISMA

Services for gas transport


As of autumn of 2011 all German gas transmission system operators and as of beginning 2013 a major part of the European transmission system operators market their transport capacity over a common online platform. For transport customers this means that they are able to plan gas transport much more easily, conveniently and flexibly via a single online platform. Marketing of firm capacity at cross-border and national interconnection points is conducted exclusively through auctions. As of 1 November 2015 the same auction mechanism applies to interruptible capacity at cross-border and national interconnection points. The remaining capacity, e.g. at directly connected end-customers or storage connection points is marketed on a fcfs (first come – first served) basis also through the online platform.
