End user with exit capacity (EWEX)
If, as a directly connected party, you have a connection to our national grid (i.e. you are not supplied by a local distribution company) then you can book the exit capacity to your company yourself. In order to be able to book exit capacity as a connected party, it is necessary to become a end user with exit capacity (EWEX).
Before you can get AMEX status, you have to meet the following creditworthiness requirements. The connected party with exit capacity must provide financial security at least two months before the start date of the contract. You can find detailed information on creditworthiness here.
Transfer of capacity
After the exit capacity is booked to your company, you have to transfer it, possibly through your supplier, to the shipper with whom you have a gas supply contract. This can be done by means of an Assignment or Transfer of Usage (TOU). The transfer should be made at least 10 working days before the start of the month in which the gas transmission is to start. The supplier must send a switch message to GTS at least 5 working days before the supply starts.
There are no costs associated with becoming an AMEX. There is a fixed charge per transfer for trading capacity which is borne by the party making the trade. The tariff is in Appendix 1c of the current TSC.
