CONSULTATIONS CONCERNING THE NEW DRAFT OF THE TNC AND WORKSHOP FOR GAS MARKET PARTICIPANTS

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. conducted market consultations of the draft of amendments to the Transmission Network Code of GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. (the “TNC”).

The proposed changes result from the need to adapt the TNC to changing legal requirements as well as result from experiences of application of current Network Code and suggestions received from network users.

The key changes to the provisions of the Code result, among other things, from the implementation of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 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 (NC CAM), which introduces procedures concerning incremental capacity at interconnection points. Moreover, the provisions concerning the procedure for the mobilisation and settlement of mandatory stocks of natural gas have been updated and aligned with the current Stockpiling Act. In addition, the amendment introduces provisions on the within day obligations which are related to the expiring period of the application of interim measures according to NC BAL (Commission Regulation (EU) No 312/2014 of 26 March 2014 establishing a Network Code on Gas Balancing of Transmission Networks). In view of the amendment of the Act on Measurements, new principles related to the verification of gas meters have also been proposed.

The detailed list of changes can be found below in the published draft of the Transmission Network Code (version 26).
