Gasport and B2B
GTS makes information available to its customers with regard to the transport of gas via our Online services. The content of this information is mainly depending on your role within the transport of gas (shipper, end user, supplier or other network user).
You can retrieve this information in 2 ways:
A portal, providing web-based access to transport information. In this way you can view, via screens, the information relevant and available for you;
- B2B (Business to Business):
B2B makes it possible to download information and integrate it in your system. This service provides interfaces based on web service technology to retrieve information (XML downloads).
Due to the role of shippers within the balancing regime of the national grid, shippers with contracted capacity on physical entry or exit points (license A or B), have to make us of B2B, because the infrastructure of B2B is 24-hour service based. Gasport is only serviced by GTS during office hours.
Information based upon your role
Our online information services offer the possibility to retrieve balancing information. You can retrieve the following information to balance your portfolio(s):
- the portfolio imbalance position of one or more of your portfolios;
- the system balance position;
- balancing actions and emergency measures;
- the allocations for all points for which transport capacity has been contracted.
This information is provided on near real time basis.
In addition to near real time information, we also provide historical information. This historical information includes the archived near real time information, but also the offline allocations used in the settlement process and invoicing. In principle offline data is the same data as near real time data, but extra checks and, if needed, corrections have been made to it.
For End Users with a connection to the GTS grid, we provide near-real-time information about the flow, quality and composition of the gas at the network points where you are directly connected to the grid. The historical information that we provide includes the offline flow and quality of the gas. End Users can also retrieve offline supplier allocations (purpose: which part is delivered by which supplier).
Suppliers can only retrieve offline allocations for the network points where you supply the gas.
Other Network Users
For Other Network Users with a connection to the GTS grid, we provide near-real-time information about the flow, quality and composition of the gas at the network points where you are directly connected to the grid. The historical information that we provide includes the offline flow and quality of the gas.
