1 - The number of physical entry points to the transmission system i.e. places of the gaseous fuel delivery with specified physical location. This number includes gas import, gas off-take from the underground gas storage, gas delivery from producing fileds and production (mixing facilities).

2 - The number of physical exit points from the transmission system i.e. places of the gaseous fuel off-take with specified physical location. This number includes transmission to exit points at the point of interconnection with a distribution area and distribution network not being gas distribution area, delivery to the underground gas storage, export and final customers.

3 - The provided amount of gas transmitted includes transmission of low-methane natural gas (L) converted into high-methane natural gas (E). Amount doesn't include Gas Exchange and OTC Market transactions. As in 2017 the settlement of transmission service was made in energy units, the amount of transmitted gas in volume units (m3) is just approximated value.
