There is no charge for terminating the connection but you do have to bear in mind the 3-month notice period. Your contractual obligations remain in force until the actual termination date.
Any contracted capacity cannot unfortunately be cancelled, except in the case of bankruptcy or business cessation, when contractual obligations arising from booked capacity are also terminated. 50% of the tariff of the remaining booking will be charged to the holder of the capacity for that.
Article 16 of the General Conditions for Connection Agreements, version 3.1 accompanying the connection agreement describe the conditions under which termination is possible.
In addition, article 6.A.11 of the TSC deals with the supply of transmission capacity in the event of bankruptcy or business cessation.
To dismantle the complete connection or a part of the connection, please look at “Termination of a connection”
We will consult you when we start to dismantle the connection or part of it. GTS is responsible for removing the connection, including the connecting pipeline on your site. We will start to dismantle the connection within 2 years of the termination of the connection agreement.
The supply pipeline must always be depressurised before work can be done in the immediate vicinity of the connection or the supply pipeline.
