GAZ-SYSTEM has presented an offer of products available in the yearly product auction on the GSA Platform and the RBP

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. as the operator of the national transmission system and the operator of the Polish section of the Yamal-Western Europe transit gas pipeline system (hereinafter: Yamal gas pipeline) will offer the capacity of interconnections in yearly product auctions.

The auctions will start on 6 July 2020 at 9.00 (CEST) on two platforms used to book interconnection capacities. According to the decision ACER 10/2019, the capacity on the Polish-German border at the GCP GAZ-SYSTEM/ONTRAS and Mallnow points will be allocated via the RBP platform. The capacity at the remaining points of GAZ SYSTEM and GAZ-SYSTEM ISO interconnections will be offered as previously on the GSA Platform. During this year’s auction the market participants will also be able to book for the first time the capacity of the GCP GAZ-SYSTEM/UA TSO interconnection operating since 1 July 2020. The new point was created by commercial integration of existing  interconnection points – IP Drozdowicze and IP Hermanowice. The capacity of this interconnection in both directions will be made available on the GSA Platform by both GAZ-SYSTEM and LLC “Gas TSO of Ukraine”.

By joining the July auctions organised on the RBP and GSA Platform, market participants may book capacities on a firm basis within yearly products, which make capacity available for no more than the next 15 gas years. The auctions are conducted in accordance with the provisions of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/459 of 16 March 2017 establishing a network code on capacity allocation mechanisms in gas transmission systems (CAM NC), which requires operators at points on interconnection with other transmission systems to offer standard products, i.e. capacity available for yearly, quarterly, monthly, daily, or within-day periods. The Network Code also requires operators to publish their product offers one month before the annual auction date. The gas year starts on 1 October 6:00 a.m.

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.
