Subscribing services

Requesting services: several sales channels

In order to subscribe and use transmission services, a party must first register as a grid user, as described in the access code for transmission (ACT - Attachment B). 

Transmission services can be requested as follows, depending on the service and / or point:

  • on the multi-TSO capacity platform PRISMA; and/or
  • on Fluxys' Electronic Booking System (EBS); and/or
  • in writing

An overview of the sales channels per service is availabe here.

PRISMA is a joint initiative with other TSOs aiming at the implementation of a platform connecting European natural gas markets by the implementation of the European Network Code for Capacity Allocation Mechanisms ("CAM NC")

Capacity services offered on PRISMA are made available via auctions as standard products (Year, Quarter, Month, Day-Ahead and Within-Day), either as bundled capacity services, either as unbundled services.

Assignment of services (secondary market)

The secondary market is an alternative source for grid users looking to buy capacity and an outlet for grid users wishing to sell capacity they do not intend to use. Grid users are offered a dedicated environment for buying and selling interconnection capacity on the secondary market either through the platform PRISMA secondary, either in writing.

Tips for using search operators

Use "quotation marks" to search for a series of words or a phrase in a specific order.

Boolean operators

You can find a group of words or a phrase by using the link words AND, OR and NOT:
known as Boolean operators, these words are used to combine terms in the search field.

  • AND: All the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple AND Pear will return publications containing both the word Apple and the word Pear.


  • OR :  At least one of the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple OR Pear will return publications containing either the word Apple or the word Pear or both.


  • NOT: The term preceded by NOT must not be included in the publication. Typing in Apple NOT Pear will return publications containing the word Apple but not the word Pear.
