Public Consultation under Article 4.2 of INT NC on an amendment to the Rules for Baumgarten IP

Public consultation with the adjacent transmission system operators (“bTSOs”) under Article 4.2 of INT NC on an amendment to the Rules for Baumgarten IP

  • Published: 1 August 2019
  • Consultation closed: 30 September 2019
  1. Article 3 (c):

The first matching cycle shall begin at 14:00 CET of the Gas-Day D-1. The next matching cycle for Renominations shall be run on an hourly basis. The last cycle shall terminate 03:00 hours before the end of the Gas‑Day D.

EUSTREAM shall have the role of the Initiating System Operator and a bTSO shall have the role of the Matching System Operator in the matching procedure.

The matching procedure shall start with the Forward Nomination Notice (12G) sent by the bTSO to EUSTREAM, which shall contain both the single-sided and double-sided nominations on the basis of all Shipper Code Pairs.

EUSTREAM shall send CMA a Matching Notice (14G) containing both single sided nominations and double-sided nominations for each Shipper Code Pair; the Matching Notice (14G) shall include data for 24 hours (except 23/25 hours for daylight saving/solar time change days) and only positive values.

The bTSO shall compare the hourly quantities for each Shipper Code Pair from the last Matching Notice (14G) received from EUSTREAM with the hourly quantities for all corresponding Shipper Code Pairs and send EUSTREAM a Matching Confirmation (16G) including the confirmed hourly quantities of the respective Shipper Code Pairs.

Where the hourly quantities of the bTSO differ from the quantities in the Matching Notice (14G) received from EUSTREAM, the bTSO shall apply the "lesser rule" principle.

  1. Article 3 (e):

The adjacent transmission system operators shall ensure that communication procedures which facilitate fast and simultaneous communication in cases of Exceptional Events are established.

Unless otherwise agreed, the communication between the involved transmission system operators shall be performed by oral communication in English for information, followed by an electronic written confirmation.

The transmission system operator affected by an Exceptional Event shall be required, as a minimum, to inform its network users with respect to point (b) and (c) of this paragraph if there is a potential impact on their confirmed quantities and the adjacent transmission system operator(s) with respect to point (a) and (c) of this paragraph of the occurrence of such Exceptional Event and to provide all necessary information about:

  • the possible impact on the quantities and quality of gas that can be transported through the interconnection point;
  • the possible impact on the confirmed quantities for network users active at the affected interconnection point;
  • the expected and actual end of the Exceptional Event.
