Unregistered sites
Unregistered Sites Unregistered Sites

  • An “Unregistered Site” is:

    • new Meter Point Reference Number in Transporters’ Supply Point Register (SPR)

    • no User Registration (or prior registration) in SPR

    • legitimate status where no gas is flowing (usually ‘siteworks’ in process)

    • illegitimate status where gas is being consumed i.e. potential that gas has been illegally taken whilst in the course of conveyance

      • no supply contract between supplier and consumer (NB: Ofgem has the view that a Supply Contract is not ‘valid’ if there is no User Registration in SPR)

      • socialised risk (energy reconciled via RbD)

  • Shipperless Sites are not within scope of this agreement


Transporter obligations
Transporter Obligations Unregistered Sites

  • Transporters Licence Condition 7 obligations

    • to investigate where it appears gas is taken whilst it is ‘in the course of conveyance’

    • to use reasonable endeavours to recover the value of the gas taken in such circumstances (Gas Act Sch 2B provides legal ability to do so)

  • ‘ in the course of conveyance’

    • where a supply contract (or a deemed supply contract) is in place, any point upstream of the ECV

    • where there is no supply contract (or deemed supply contract) is in place, at any point


Ngd bgt agreement pilot bgt to provide service on behalf of ngd
NGD / BGT Agreement (Pilot) – BGT to Provide Service on behalf of NGD

  • information from existing Xoserve Unregistered Sites (“Orphaned”) reporting

    • for ‘shipper activity’ MPRNs, relevant shippers have confirmed ‘no interest’ or not responded to request

  • undertake investigation (LC7) on behalf of NGD to

    • establish whether gas is being consumed

    • establish if a supply contract is in place

  • BGT to comply with requirements in respect of treatment of vulnerable customers

  • if gas is being consumed and there is no supply contract in place

    • use reasonable endeavours (LC7) on behalf of NGD to recover the value of the gas costs (NB: no investigation costs)

    • notify consumer that it must enter into a supply contract with a supplier

    • possible future service to undertake disconnection on behalf of NGD where instructed to do so by NGD


Bgt service treatment of cost and revenues
BGT Service – Treatment of Cost and Revenues behalf of NGD

  • Value of gas costs recovered by BGT on behalf of NGD are returned to NGD

  • NGD pays BGT for investigation and cost recovery services

    • BGT charges required to be reasonable and cost reflective

  • NGD treats revenue recovered and investigation and costs recovery charges in accordance with Licence Condition 7(3) Scheme

    • Changes made to Licence “Transportation Revenue” to maintain revenue neutrality


Bgt service status
BGT Service – Status behalf of NGD

  • Ofgem is aware of proposal and following various challenges dialogue has taken place to ensure arrangement is acceptable

  • NGD and BGT intends to commence pilot as soon as possible

    • bilateral arrangements to be finalised

    • operational processes/interfaces to be concluded


Bgt service next steps
BGT Service – Next Steps behalf of NGD

  • Costs and revenues to be monitored on an ongoing basis

  • Pilot likely to commence Q1 2011 and last 12 months

  • At this point review to be conducted and decision taken on whether to extend duration of arrangement

  • Potential success criteria

    • volume of consequential User registrations

    • proportion of invoiced charges recovered

    • extent to which costs recovered meet service charge

    • residual theft detection
