Capacities

slide8

Market structure

  • Same market structure as for the 1st Phase, with three balancing zones in France and one in Spain:
slide9

Physical projects

  • MidCat:
  • Biriatou:
  • GRTgaz North – GRTgaz South link:
slide10

Interconnection Points (IPs)

  • For commercial purposes, capacity is offered at 6 Interconnection Points:
slide11

Commercial capacities

Only annual capacities are considered. No seasonal capacities are offered.

Commercial capacities (2015 capacities) correspond to:

  • 3 possible physical development scenarios for MidCat (MC0, MC1 and MC2),
  • 2 possible physical development scenarios for Biriatou (B0 and B1),
  • 4 feasible combinations between them (MC2+B1, MC2+B0, MC1+B0, and MC0+B0).

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.

  • These total 18 possible commercial scenarios.

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

Requirements to participate in the OS

NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT

  • Shippers willing to participate in the OS must sign and submit the relevant Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA):
  • It is also recommended to sign, in any case, the NDA with Enagás, as Joint Allocation Office.
  • Shippers having already signed and submitted the corresponding NDA during the 1st phase of the OS do not need to take any further action, since the NDAs remain valid for the Open Season being the second phase.

LICENSES

  • In France, a shipper is required to have a valid license for the gas networks before the signing date of the transmission contract
  • In Spain, a communication of the starting of activity, and a declaration that all duties are fulfilled, is required to develop the shipping activity for companies based in EU Members.

Application form and Allocation rules

slide28

Request and booking of capacities

  • Up to 4 shippers may request capacity through a single Application form, making, under each pricing option, up to six capacity requests in total (one at each IP):
slide29

Capacity requests: capacity data

  • Amount of capacity requested (MWh/d):
    • It will be constant at each Interconnection Point for the whole duration, under each pricing option.
  • Minimum capacity required to accept the allocation (MWh/d):
    • If the minimum capacity required to accept the allocation, under a pricing option, is not reached by the shipper through that request at an IP after the 1st Allocation Stage, no capacity will be allocated to the shipper for that capacity request at that point (under that pricing option). In case of coordinated requests, no capacity will be allocated to the shipper for the coordinated capacity requests at the coordinated points.
    • Requests for capacity at the same IP submitted through different Application Forms will be treated independently in order to apply the “Minimum capacity requirement check”.
  • Maximum amount of capacity requested at an Interconnection Point:
    • The aggregation of amounts of capacity requested by a single shipper or by a group or companies (relationship of control as per EC Regulation 139/2004) through more than one Application Form, under each pricing option, must be equal to or lower than 100% of the total amount of capacity offered at that IP in any given month.
slide30

Capacity requests: pricing levels

  • The pricing level is the relevant price for the entry tariff in France for which the capacity request is made. The price is expressed as the “premium over the equalised entry tariff into France at PIRs
  • Shippers must indicate the capacity they would like to request at each Interconnection Point, and the minimum capacity required to accept the allocation, for each of the possible pricing level at IP1.
slide31

Capacity requests: starting date and duration

  • Starting date (date from which the shipper requests the commencement of the service.):
    • The starting date will be the 1st day of the referred month.
  • Duration (period covered by the capacity request):
    • Minimum duration of 13 consecutive months and maximum duration of 240 consecutive months.
    • The period covered by the capacity request (“Duration”) must start not earlier than 1st December 2015 and must end not later than 30th November 2035.
slide32

Capacity requests in the Application form

  • As described before, the following information shall be indicated for each IP where capacity is requested:
allocation options
Allocation options

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.

priority rules
Priority rules

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.

allocation round
Allocation Round
  • The allocation process, under each pricing option, will be first performed for the Reference Case (MC2+B1+NS1), of the Allocation Round.
  • An Allocation Round, following the 3 allocation stages established, will be first performed for the Reference Case, at each of the 6 pricing levels (from α to ζ), resulting, for each given pricing level, on a set of 6 aggregated capacity allocations, i.e. one allocation for each of the 6 IPs offered.
  • Thus, 6 sets of 6 aggregated capacity allocations for the Reference Case will result (“First provisional allocation”). This will be sent to regulators for validation. If validated, they will be announced as the Final Allocation.
  • If not validated a subsequent(s) Allocation Round(s) will be performed by TSOs for a different capacity scenario, at each of the 6 pricing levels, at the regulators’ request, according to the methodology described in the Economic Tests.
  • Subsequent allocations resulting from new Allocation Rounds will be referred to as “Second provisional allocation”, “Third provisional allocation”, and so forth.
allocation stages
Allocation Stages

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.

allocation stages1
Allocation Stages

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

allocation stages2
Allocation Stages

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.
