Introduction
  • In order to overcome the constraints and technological obsolescence of theapplication currently being used (CAMINUS/AltraWEB), as well as direct the management and the support for the development ofnew commercial processes resulting from national and Europeanregulations, Snam Rete Gas has started a specific project to create a new information system dedicated to the commercial area
  • The initiative was launched in November 2012 with the establishment of a transversal work group dedicated to directing the various requirements to all the internal and/or external processes involved

scope
Scope

New application for the management of the Gas Logistics area to cover the planning process of the transportation, allocation and gas statement.

  • Calculation of the quantities of gas to be allocated to the users of the transportation
  • As an example:
  • Provisional Allocation and Statement
  • Final Allocation and Statement
  • Adjustment session
  • Default service
  • Temporary Supplier
  • Contracting of the transportation capacity on National and Regional network. Verification and management access services
  • Planning and Programming of the transportation service
  • As an example:
  • Annual Planning
  • Half Year Planning
  • Monthly Planning
  • Weekly Planning
  • Planning at 30 days
  • Planning Authority
  • Daily Planning (Nomination)
  • Intraday Planning (Re-Nomination)
  • Management of products of trading capacity
  • Balancing session
  • Invoicing of the transportation capacity, the commodity, considerations for disequilibrium, other considerations
  • Dispatching and physical management of the transportation network; measurement of the volumes and the quality of the gas

The application solution (1/3)
  • The decision-making process relative to the application solution to be created has gone through:
    • a software selection of the solutions available on the market
    • a verification of the functional coverage offered relative to the distinctive features of the Italian market
    • a verification of the constraints imposed by the various packages
    • a comparison with the implementation choices made by other European Transporters, who have turned to custom applications to meet their needs
  • The new application solution identified anticipates the realisation of a custom application based on the latest technologies.

NLG System

Caminus System

    • It will be used for the following activities:
  • Display of supporting identification information
  • Input, change, display Nomination information, both in web mode, for the authorized shippers, and X12
  • Display Reports
  • Display nomination information with 5 year history
  • It will continue to manage:
    • Display and availability data of Provisional and Final Statement

    • Adjustment Session
    • kWh
    • Management of the Nomination and Allocation messages through protocol Edig@s
    • Intraday Allocation
    • Display Matching data
  • n.a. due to complete decommissioning
interim attention points
Interim: Attention Points
  • In the new platform will exist more data details, for example there will be 7 decimal numbers for the data expressed in Energy (GJ), until the transition is completed we point out the coexistence of a different method of managing the number of decimal numbers between the nomination and allocation data.
  • Simultaneous use of both systems (Caminus and NLG), maintaining the operations asis
  • Where possible, setting up the data base with depth of five years according to the logic of NLG

Interaction Method with the Users: B2B Communications

Starting in March special information communications have been published of the Snam Rete Gas site for the Users relative to the development of the new system, containing information and instructions on the approach to adopt regarding the innovations introduced by the new platform.

News of the solution: Increased Security Level

the Snam Rete Gas Logistics System will use exclusively the HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol over SecureSocketLayer) protocol in both directions, with authentication of the system (Basic Authentication).

The coding of the message is not anticipated in the communications, only the transmission channel through Secure HTTP (HTTPS).

Connectivity Test on HTTPS protocol completed in June (further details to follow)
