The first platform for publishing REMIT inside information for natural gas

Participants in the wholesale gas market may now use the Gas Inside Information Platform (GIIP) - a publicly available platform for publishing inside information. It also allows to fulfil the obligations imposed by the UE Regulation on wholesale energy market integrity and transparency (REMIT).

According to this Regulation, the obligation to publish the so-called inside information (in the form of Urgent Market Messages - UMM) has been imposed on the participants of the wholesale energy market. They concern, among others, the capacity and use of systems for the transmission of natural gas and electricity, including their planned and unplanned unavailability. Thanks to the publication of UMMs, all market participants have equal access to information on the availability of infrastructure and can make business decisions based on reliable and verified knowledge, which is available in one place.

The platform offers a range of services, including: free access to all published messages, automatic download of messages via web feeds or searching through publications using extended filters.

GIIP has been developed by GAZ-SYSTEM in accordance with the REMIT Regulation and recommendations of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER).

Detailed rules regarding the registration and use of the Platform are described on the Gas Inside Information Platform page https://www.gasinsideinformationplatform.pl/. Additional information can also be obtained by writing to the following e-mail address: administrator@giip.pl.

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.
