Incremental capacity process
THE NON-BINDING MARKET DEMAND ASSESMENT FOR INCREMENTAL CAPACITY
This market demand assessment is carried out in the framework of the Regulation (EU) 2017/459 of 16 March 2017 establishing a network code on capacity allocation mechanisms in gas transmission systems and repealing Regulation (EU) No 984/2013 (CAM NC amendment) which applies as of 6 April 2017.
For harmonizing the process for the development of incremental capacity in the European Union, new provisions on the incremental capacity process have been introduced by the CAM NC amendment which is a standardised procedure for market participants to indicate in a non-binding way their demand for incremental capacity.
The first market demand assessment for incremental capacity shall be conducted in 2017 following the entry into force of the CAM NC amendment on 6 April 2017.
Based on questionnaires received under this procedure for assessing market demand for incremental capacity, GAZ-SYSTEM will evaluate the level of network users' demand for firm Incremental capacity between Polish entry-exit system and adjacent entry-exit systems.
The received non-binding indications will be used by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and transmission system operators of adjacent entry-exit systems to produce common market demand assessment reports, each covering all interconnection points of at least one entry-exit system border, evaluating the prospective demand for incremental capacity and stating whether an Incremental capacity project is initiated.
The market demand assessment reports will be published no later than 16 weeks after the start of the Procedure, by 27 July 2017 at the latest, at the websites of transmission system operators.
Interested network users are asked to send filled in questionnaire for non-binding demand indications for incremental capacity, available below, until 1 June 2017 16.00 (CEST).
The questionnaire together with required attachments shall be sent to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org and in a written form at the address indicated in the Rules provided below.
