PRISMA quarterly auctions on August 6, 2018
Important information regarding (b)FZK capacity offer
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 for Q2 and Q3 of calendar year 2019 to be held on August 6, 2018: In the framework of the Network Development Plan Gas 2016-2026 (NDP) construction works for measure n°307-01 (“GDRM-Anlage Mittelbrunn”) will start during summer 2019.
As a consequence of these construction works, during separate periods in Q2 and Q3 of calendar year 2019 the physical gas transfer between the TENP and MEGAL pipeline systems will be restricted. Fluxys TENP and OGE, together with their partner GRTgaz Deutschland GmbH, are preparing and planning the necessary actions in order to reduce as much as possible the capacity impact related to these construction works. Detailed work planning and potential capacity impact are expected to be available in Q4 2018.
As a precautionary measure, Fluxys TENP and OGE will reduce their (b)FZK capacity offer in the quarterly auctions of August 6, 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 entry point Bocholtz and exit point Wallbach. Interruptible products for these 2 quarters will be offered anyway.
For the periods in Q2 and Q3 in 2019 which are not affected by the above mentioned maintenance, remaining firm capacities will be offered in the relevant monthly, DA- and WD auctions according to the PRISMA auction calendar.
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.
