More capacity: Conclude preliminary agreements until 27 January 2017

Hannover, 17 January 2017

Dear Sir or Madam,

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, please 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 costumer 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 costumer commits to bid for a specified amount of capacity and the respective more capacity TSO commits to offer the respective capacity in the auctions.

more capacity: Auctions for new transport capacities start on March 6, 2017

Hanover, Düsseldorf, Kassel, Leipzig, 05 January 2017 | Press release

 

Press release of Fluxys Deutschland GmbH, GASCADE Gastransport GmbH, Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH, NEL Gastransport GmbH und ONTRAS Gastransport GmbH

 

Supplementary Terms and Conditions of Business to create new capacities published

The five more capacity partners Fluxys Deutschland GmbH, GASCADE Gastransport GmbH, Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH, NEL Gastransport GmbH and ONTRAS Gastransport GmbH have published their Supplementary Terms and Conditions of Business to create new transport capacities for H gas on their respective company homepages. These form the basis for the annual auctions being held on March 6, 2017 on the European capacity platform PRISMA.

The auctions are a further milestone in the process that has been ongoing since summer 2015: Previously, the new capacities, which were requested in a non-binding market survey, were translated into specific proposals for expanding the network in a manner that makes economic sense. To increase the binding nature as a prerequisite for the further development of the measures, existing capacities and those to be newly created at the boundaries of the GASPOOL market area will be auctioned. The auctions will take place in parallel on PRISMA in line with the ENTSOG auction calendar.

The Supplementary Terms and Conditions of Business and preliminary contracts of the more capacity partners published on time and already consulted in summer 2016 define the details for marketing the new capacities. It is envisaged, for example, that transport customers first have to book the existing capacities in full before new capacities can be made available to them. The relevant nodes at the market area transition points have also been published.

As a complement to the network development plan (NDP) process, the more capacity initiators GASCADE, Gasunie Deutschland and ONTRAS conducted a market survey from August 21 through October 16, 2015, to determine the need for new transport capacities for H gas along the boundaries of the GASPOOL market area. The aim was to project future demand for new cross-market-area transport capacities as early and as realistically as possible in order to support the expansion of the gas pipeline infrastructure in line with the European internal market and supply security. Overall, eight market players submitted 73 individual inquiries that extend to the year 2041. Fluxys Deutschland joined more capacity in April 2016, followed by NEL Gastransport in July 2016.

You can find more information on the procedure and the documents under consultation at the homepages of the more capacity partners and at: www.more-capacity.eu.

GUD to switch to AS4 technology in data communications

Hannover, 15 November 2016

The Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/703 of 30 April 2015 establishing a network code on interoperability and data exchange rules took effect on 01 May 2016. According to Article 21 of the regulation, Gasunie Deutschland (GUD) must switch the document-based data exchange at cross border- and market area-interconnection points to the protocol AS4 and has to use the data format Edig@s XML.

By decision of the Bundesnetzagentur from 12 April 2016, concerning the request by the German TSO’s, to approve the further usage of the existing solutions for data exchange (BK7-16-042), GUD is allowed to utilize the already established AS2 communication links in conjunction with EDIFACT formats until 31 January 2018.

GUD will use this exemption until 01 October 2017. Until that date all data communication paths have to be switched to AS4.

The high number of market partners affected by the switch requires detailed planning and will take a period of approximately one year. Therefore, we will first reach out individually to the affected market partners, record their requirements and develop a changeover timetable. In preparation for the alteration, we would like to indicate some initial information here:

Who is affected?
All market partners who nominate, get matched or obtain capacity stock reports at GUD’s cross border- and market area-interconnection points.

What data formats are affected?
The hitherto used versions of NOMINT, NOMRES and CHACAP will be converted to the respective xml expression (currently version 5.1).

Which communication links are affected?
Any existing communication link will be changed to AS4.

Until when has the change to be completed?
GUD intends to complete the switch until 01 October 2017.

How substantial is the change?

Based on experience with AS2, communication changes to AS4 can be implement with relativly little effort.

How will the change be performed?
The new AS4-communication link is tested by GUD and put into operation by an IT provider. Immediately afterwards the switch of data formats to xml is carried out.

Which functionalities has AS4?

  • Acknowledgment mechanisms, a reliable messaging and - in the case of erroneous data transmission - the ability to allow a repeat.
  • Secure data exchange via password authentication, digital signature and encryption
  • Compression and transmission of large volumes of data
  • Pattern for message exchanges that allows a rich variety of interactions between sender and receiver

What distinguishes AS4 from AS2?
AS4 is in many ways similar to AS2, but works in a web services context and owns advanced interaction patterns and receipts for message-based transfer of data.
