Non-binding market screening procedure for the capacity at the Poland-Ukraine border

PJSC “UKRTRANSGAZ” and GAZ-SYSTEM S.A., gas transmission system operators of Ukraine and Poland respectively, launch non-binding market screening procedure for the capacity at the Poland-Ukraine border.

By conducting this non-binding market screening procedure both TSO's aim to estimate the level of market participants’ demand for the capacity at the Poland-Ukraine border and to create basis for further enhancement of the integrity of the regional markets through expansion of the Polish and Ukrainian gas transmission networks.


Early estimations of the TSOs show that firm capacity could be available to the market from
1 January 2020, therefore a non-binding market screening procedure for the capacity at the Polish-Ukrainian border shall cover the period of 15 years starting from gas year 2019-2020, taking into account that the capacity in gas year 2019-2020 will be available from 1 January 2020 until 1 October 2020.


The results of the market screening procedure shall constitute the basis for the TSOs decision on the future binding allocation procedure (Open Season) for the firm capacities at the Poland-Ukraine border, in both directions of the flow. The demonstrated market interest, will be the basis for the decision on building of the new interconnection.

If the market interest during the binding phase is confirmed, the final decision on expansion of the bidirectional gas flows between Poland and Ukraine may be taken.

Enhancement of the bidirectional gas flows between Poland and Ukraine would significantly contribute to the implementation of the European Union’s strategic aims of improving energy security and market integration.

In order to participate in the assessment, market participants shall fill in Capacity request form in accordance with the Rules of market screening and send the filled-in form to PJSC “UKRTRANSGAZ” and GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. in the period between 6 April and 8 June 2018 to the addresses specified in the Rules. All questions regarding the assessment or the capacity request form shall be sent to email addresses businesscooperation@utg.ua and openseason@gaz-system.pl.
