Final documentation and Info Memo contents
STRUCTURE OF THE INFORMATION MEMORANDUM
New investments description.
Allocation rules for 2015 capacities.
Letter of Commitment.
Non-Disclosure Agreements (Spain).
Non-Disclosure Agreements (France).
Only annual capacities are considered. No seasonal capacities are offered.
Commercial capacities (2015 capacities) correspond to:
In addition, the commercial capacities between GRTgaz North – GRTgaz South correspond to 2 possible physical scenarios (NS0 and NS1) which can be combined with the 9 scenarios above, and which depend on the economic test to be applied to the investment project between GRTgaz North and GRTgaz South.
MC2+B1+NS1 will be the Reference Case for determining the maximum amount of capacity that can be requested by a shipper or group of companies

Application form and Allocation rules
Independent and Coordinated allocation options.
Independent Allocation per Point (OPTION A): Each capacity request will be treated independently during the allocation process.
Coordinated Allocation (OPTION B): A coordinated allocation of capacity between two or more IPs is accepted.
Capacity requests at the coordinated points will be referred to as the “coordinated requests”. Coordinated request is defined as a capacity request whose capacity allocation is only accepted by the shipper(s) if the “minimum capacity required to accept the allocation” is reached at other Interconnection Points.
All possible combinations of Interconnection Points will be accepted.
Types of coordination under OPTION B:
Option B.I. Non-flat Capacity Allocation: The allocation of different amounts of capacity at each coordinated point is accepted
Option B.II. Flat Capacity Allocation: The same amount of capacity will be allocated at the coordinated points at the end of the Allocation Round. Note that under this option both the amount of capacity requested and the minimum capacity required to accept the allocation must be equal at all coordinated points.
FIRST PRIORITY: EARLIER DATE OF “STARTING DATE OF THE SERVICE”.
Capacity requests will be first ranked granting higher priority to capacity requests with an earlier date of ”starting date of the service”, being 1st December 2015 the earliest possible date.
SECOND PRIORITY: LONGER DURATION.
Capacity requests with the same starting date will be ranked granting higher priority to capacity requests of longer duration. Capacity requests with a duration equal to or higher than 120 months will be granted the highest priority between capacity requests with the same starting date.
PRO RATA ALLOCATION
Allocation of capacities between capacity requests with the same level of priority will be made on a pro-rata basis taking into account the amount of capacity requested.
1st Allocation Stage: Initial Allocation
Capacity requests will be treated independently at each Interconnection Point
The amount of capacity allocated to each shipper for each capacity request, at each IP, will be constant for whole period covered by the request.
2nd Allocation Stage:
Step 1: minimum capacity requirement check. If the minimum amount is not reached at an IP after the 1st Allocation Stage, the request will be withdrawn from the process and the capacity will be freed up. In case of OPTION B (Coordinated Points) all coordinated requests will be withdrawn from the process.
Step 2: coordinated request check. In the case of Flat Capacity Allocation (Option B.II.) if the minimum amount of capacity specified at each Coordinated Point has not been reached, the provisional capacity allocation after the 1st Allocation Stage at each point might be reduced to ensure that the maximum flat capacity is achieved between all Coordinated Points. Part of the capacities provisionally allocated after the 1st Allocation Stage might be freed up
3rd Allocation Stage:
A 3rd Allocation Stage will be performed to re-allocate capacity freed up during the 2nd Allocation Stage.
The following requests will be considered during the 3rd Allocation Stage for the allocation of freed-up capacity:
Independent requests qualified during the 2nd Allocation Stage to participate in the 3rd Allocation Stage.
Coordinated requests under Option B.I. qualified during the 2nd Allocation Stage to participate in the 3rd Allocation Stage.
