L-gas transportation across market areas will be simplified

L-gas transportation across market areas will be simplified

Hanover, Essen, 25 March 2014 | Press release

Open Grid Europe GmbH, Essen, and Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH, Hanover, will simplify L-gas transportation for their customers by integrating marketing at the Drohne, Emsbüren and Nordlohne entry and exit points into one entry and exit zone in each case. Transports will be possible from May 7, 2014. Booked capacities will be transferred automatically from the existing points to zones. Transportation fees including all existing fee elements will continue to be valid unchanged for the future zones.

This is for the first time that market area boundary points will be combined for L-gas transportation between the GASPOOL and NCG market areas.

Elmar Bresser, Head of Customers, Products & Capacities at Open Grid Europe, said about this new development in the L-gas business: “Combining points to form zones will simplify L-gas transportation between German market areas and make it easier for customers to use the service.”

Markus Neuhaus, Head of Sales & Back Office at Gasunie Deutschland, explained: “During the next few weeks, Open Grid Europe and Gasunie Deutschland will inform their customers about the benefits of this new way to book capacities across market areas. The creation of zones does not involve a restriction of capacities; we were successful in maintaining the amount of marketable capacities available to customers.”

At Open Grid Europe, the new zone will be called GUD L-gas, at Gasunie Deutschland OGE L-gas. With this measure, the companies will implement legal and regulatory requirements.
