Offer of products that will be made available in yearly product auctions

On 5 July 2021 GAZ-SYSTEM has presented an offer of products available in the yearly product auction on the GSA platform and the RBP. GAZ-SYSTEM 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 5 July 2021 at 9.00 (CEST) on two platforms used to book interconnection capacities. 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 on the GSA platform.

The market participants will be able to book the existing firm capacity in yearly products. Additionally, in the incremental capacity auction, the offer will cover 15 gas years from the scheduled date that this capacity is made available to market participants.

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 06:00 a.m. (CEST).

Market participants are invited to a webinar which will be held by GAZ-SYSTEM on 9 June 2021 at 11:00 am, to learn more on the details of the auction link to registration form. The first part of the webinar will focus on essential information on the annual product auction and the incremental capacity auction, while the second part will discuss the methodology for calculating the 2022 gas transmission charge rates and will present on the 2022 rates.

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.
