Incremental Capacity Process

Incremental capacity process at the interconnection points

In accordance with requirements of points 1 and 2 of Subsection 1 of Section XX of the GTS Code, each odd-numbered year gas transmission system operator shall conduct market demand assessment of incremental capacity for interconnection points. Assessment of potential demand on incremental capacity was conducted from 5 July until 29 August 2021 inclusive (during 8 weeks). In the mentioned period, all network users had the right to participate in the market demand assessment concerning incremental capacity for interconnection points.

GTSOU and adjacent TSOs have conducted an independent assessment of potential demand for incremental capacity at joint IPs. Together with the Polish TSO (GAZ-SYSTEM S.A.) and Romanian TSO (Transgaz S.A.), joint reports have been developed based on the assessment results. The reports contain an agreed opinion on the feasibility of initiating an incremental capacity project, preliminary deadlines for the incremental capacity project, technical studies and consultations. Please find the joint reports here:
