Fluxys Belgium - Market Consultation 65 - Changes in the Regulated Documents and Storage Tariffs

In a continuous effort to further improve its service offering, Fluxys Belgium is proposing adjustments to its storage services and storage tariffs with a focus on:

  • Adjusting the fuel invoice model towards Energy in Cash,
  • Introducing a cash deposit as a last-resort option for collateral,
  • The communication of the maximum allowed GIS-exceeding,
  • Storage tariffs for the 2024-2027 period. Fluxys Belgium expects tariff levels for storage for 2024-2027 to remain in line with the current tariffs. These new tariffs are determined based on the following key assumptions:
  • Operating costs in line with the previous regulatory period,
  • Investment in new electrical motors for five compressors in order to reduce emissions of the installation and to comply with environmental regulation,
  • All still available SBU capacity sold at a price in line with the relevant summer-winter spread.
