Connection to the transmission system

The process of connection to the transmission system is governed primarily by the Decree of the Regulatory Office for Network Industries No 24/2014 of 14 January 2013, laying down the rules for the functioning of the internal market in electricity and the internal market in natural gas, as amended.

EUSTREAM’s transmission system is connected to the distribution network of SPP – distribúcia, a.s. at multiple interconnection points, and also to underground natural gas storage facilities located in the territory of the Slovak Republic.

The connection of gas facilities to EUSTREAM’s transmission system is based on a connection contract and is subject to meeting technical and commercial conditions of connection and the statutory conditions laid down in the relevant law (Energy Act).

The conditions for connecting a gas facility to the transmission system and the process of application for connection to the transmission system and the process of concluding a transmission system connection contract are laid down in the Operational Order of EUSTREAM.
