PRISMA quarterly auction on 5 November 2018
Important information regarding capacity offer for IPs Bocholtz Entry and Wallbach Exit
Fluxys TENP GmbH (Fluxys TENP) and Open Grid Europe GmbH (OGE) would hereby like to provide all interested parties with the following information related to the quarterly auction to be held on 5 November 2018.
Fluxys TENP and OGE are happy to hereby announce that FZK, bFZK and BZK capacity for Fluxys TENP and FZK capacity for OGE will be offered for Q3 2019 (transport period 01/07/2019 – 30/09/2019) during the quarterly auction of 5 November 2018 at the IP Bocholtz Entry and IP Wallbach Exit.
For Q2 2019 (transport period 01/04/2019 – 30/06/2019) the offer of FZK, bFZK and BZK capacity for Fluxys TENP and FZK capacity for OGE during the quarterly auction of 5 November 2018 will be reduced again at the IP Bocholtz Entry and the IP Wallbach Exit as a precautionary measure. Based on a first indicative evaluation of the consequences of the construction works for measure n°307-01 (“GDRM-Anlage Mittelbrunn”) of the Network Development Plan Gas 2016-2026 (NDP), the physical gas transfer between the TENP and MEGAL pipeline systems will be temporarily restricted during Q2 2019. The exact capacity impact for Q2 2019 is expected to be available between December 2018 and January 2019 and will be published accordingly. For the periods in Q2 2019 which are not affected by the above mentioned construction works, remaining firm capacity will be offered in the relevant monthly, DA- and WD auctions according to the PRISMA auction calendar.
As a precautionary measure, Fluxys TENP and OGE initially reduced their FZK, bFZK und BZK capacity (for Fluxys TENP) and FZK capacity (for OGE) offer in the quarterly auctions of 6 August 2018 for Q2 2019 (transport period 01/04/2019 – 30/06/2019) and Q3 2019 (transport period 01/07/2019 – 30/09/2019) at the IP Bocholtz Entry and IP Wallbach Exit. In the meantime, Fluxys TENP and OGE, together with their partner GRTgaz Deutschland GmbH, further refined the planning and performed necessary actions in order to reduce the capacity impact related to these construction works as much as possible.
Fluxys TENP and Open Grid Europe apologise for any inconveniences caused, and are at your disposal for finding suitable solutions and any further questions related to these maintenance periods.
