PRISMA quarterly auction on 04 February 2019
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 04 February 2019.
Based on the 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. After completion, this investment will allow more flexibility to access the virtual trading point.
For the second quarter of 2019 (transport period 01/04/2019 – 30/06/2019), FZK, bFZK and BZK capacity of Fluxys TENP and FZK capacity of OGE is consequently not offered at the quarterly auctions, starting at 04th February 2019, at the entry Bocholtz and exit Wallbach. For periods in Q2 2019 which are not affected by the above-mentioned construction works, the remaining firm capacities are offered in the corresponding monthly, daily and within-day 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) resp. FZK capacity (for OGE) offer in the quarterly auctions of 06th August 2018 and 05th November 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, finalized the planning and performed necessary actions in order to reduce the capacity impact related to these construction works as much as possible.
For Q3 2019 (period of transport 01/07/2019 – 30/09/2019) Fluxys TENP and OGE want to announce that FZK and bFZK capacities of Fluxys TENP and FZK capacities of OGE are offered at the quarterly auctions, starting at 04th February 2019 , for the IP entry Bocholtz. For the IP exit Wallbach, Fluxys TENP offers FZK capacities for Q3 2019 (transport period 01/07/2019 – 30/09/2019) in the auction for the third quarter. FZK capacities of OGE for Q3 2019 at exit Wallbach is not offered during the quarterly auction, starting on 04th February 2019.
