System Description and Map

The transmission system consists of four to five parallel pipes, of 1,200 or 1,400 mm in diameter, with an operating pressure of 7.35 MPa. The capacity necessary for continuous gas flow is provided by five compressor stations with an output of almost 550 MW.

Access to transmission system capacities is based on the Entry-Exit principle. The following entry/exit points to/from the transmission system are available for use to our customers:

  • Veľké Kapušany (entry/exit point to/from the gas transmission system in Ukraine),
  • Baumgarten (entry/exit point to/from the gas transmission system in Austria);
  • Lanžhot (entry/exit point to/from the gas transmission system in the Czech Republic);
  • Budince (entry/exit point to/from the gas transmission system in Ukraine);
  • Veľké Zlievce (entry/exit point to/from the gas transmission system in Hungary); and
  • Domestic point (entry/exit point from/to the distribution systems and storage facilities in Slovakia);
  • Výrava (entry/exit point to/from the gas transmission system in Poland, currently under construction with a planned launch in 2022).

For the entry and exit points and further details please refer to the Transmission System Access section.

EUSTREAM facilitates the exchange of gas ownership at a virtual trading point operated by the company, between system users with reserved transmission capacity and between gas traders.
