Change of the period for submission of request under procedure of providing capacity

A new version of the Transmission Network Code (TNC) approved by the President of the Energy Regulatory Office in decision No. DRR.WRG.4322.1.2019.AK1 from 26th March 2019 became applicable on 1st April 2019. Hence, in accordance with the said decision, the period for submission of request under procedure of providing capacity has changed.

Previously, submission of the requests for capacity allocation for annual, quarterly and monthly products related to the gas year following the gas year in which the capacity allocation availability procedure is carried out was available from April 20th to May 10th. Currently, this time window has been changed for the new period from June 25th to July 15th (7.7.10.2 TNC v. 27).

Therefore, the upcoming capacity allocation availability procedure will start on 25th June 2019 (the beginning of the time window for submission of the requests under the procedure).

It is worth emphasizing that this change is a reaction of GAZ-SYSTEM to numerous signals from market participants who reported that the period for submitting requests should be closer to the commencement of the next gas year. Please note, that the content of the TNC approved by the President of the Energy Regulation Office was published by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. in the Customer zone.

GAZ-SYSTEM plays a strategic role in the Polish economy. We are responsible for natural gas transmission and operate the most important gas pipelines in Poland. As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM plans to build over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Further development of the national transmission network, including the construction of new gas pipelines making part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as the construction of interconnections with the neighbouring countries, will strengthen Poland’s energy security and make an important contribution to the development of the European transmission system.

The Company is implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in Poland – the Baltic Pipe project, which consists in the construction of a bidirectional offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark and the expansion of the local transmission network.

GAZ-SYSTEM also owns Polskie LNG, the operator of the President Lech Kaczyński's LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.
