GAZ-SYSTEM starts the non-binding market demand assessment for incremental capacity

The market demand assessment is carried out in the framework of the Regulation (EU) 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 (CAM NC).

For harmonizing the process for the development of incremental capacity in the European Union, provisions on the incremental capacity process have been introduced by the 2017 CAM NC amendment which is a standardised procedure for market participants to indicate in a non-binding way their demand for incremental capacity.

GAZ-SYSTEM starts  a third non-binding market demand assessment for incremental capacity between Polish and neighbouring transmission systems. The non-binding market demand assessment for incremental capacity  will start on 5 July 2021 and will last for 8 weeks, i.e. until 30 August 2021. The procedure will be carried out through the GSA Platform, in accordance with the applicable GSA Platform Rules.
GAZ-SYSTEM . charges no fees for submitting non-binding requirements.

Based on the non-binding demand indications  received under this year’s procedure for assessing market demand for incremental capacity, GAZ-SYSTEM and adjacent transmission system operators will produce common market demand assessment reports,

each covering all interconnection points connecting given entry-exit system. The reports will estimate the potential demand for incremental capacity on each entry-exit system and state whether it is necessary to initiate an incremental capacity project.

In line with CAM NC he market demand assessment reports will be published no later than 16 weeks after the start of the procedure, by 25 October 2021 at the latest, at the websites of transmission system operators.

Interested network users are asked to indicate their non-binding demand indications for incremental capacity through the GSA Platform, until 30 August 2021.

All questions about the market demand assessment for incremental capacity shall be sent to the e-mail address: incremental@gaz-system.pl.



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.
