Consultations concerning the draft amendment of the TNC of TGPS

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. invites all interested parties to take part in the consultations of the draft of amendments to the Transmission Network Code of the Polish Section of the Transit Gas Pipeline System Jamal – Europe (the “TNC of TGPS”). The proposed changes result from the need to adapt the TNC of TGPS to changing legal requirements as well as result from experiences of application of the current TNC of TGPS and suggestions received from network users. Potential comments should be sent by 8th March 2019.

The key changes to the provisions of the Code result, among other things from the expiring period of the application of interim measures resulting from Commission Regulation (EU) No 312/2014 of 26 March 2014 establishing a Network Code on Gas Balancing of Transmission Networks (NC BAL) and 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.

The detailed changes can be found below in the published draft of the Transmission Network Code of the Polish Section of the Transit Gas Pipeline System Jamal – Europe.

The draft of the TNC of TGPS as well as the forms for reporting comments can be downloaded from the Market consultation section.

GAZ-SYSTEM is a strategic company for the Polish economy. It is responsible for the transmission of natural gas, manages the most important gas pipelines in Poland and owns the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.

As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM is constructing over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in the western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Over a dozen new gas pipelines are under construction within the North-South Gas Corridor and the compressor station in Kędzierzyn Koźle, as well as interconnections with Lithuania and Slovakia. Onshore gas pipelines are planned to connect the planned FSRU floating terminal in the Gulf of Gdansk with the national transmission system. The LNG Terminal in Świnoujście is also being extended, as a result of which the regasification capacity of this facility will be increased by more than a half.

The company is also implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in the country - the Baltic Pipe project which consists in the construction of a two-way offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark, expansion of the local transmission network and three gas compressor stations.
