Conversion to daylight saving time

16 Mar 2017

On gas day 25 March 2017 there will be a switch from winter time to summer time. This means that this gas day will have 23 hours. To avoid any problems please be aware of the following:

We expect nominations according the EDIGAS protocol. This means that a nomination for this gas day (25 March) consists of 23 hours in which, translated to UTC, the nomination for that day begins at 05:00 UTC (6.00 LET) and ends at 04:00 UTC (also 6.00 LET). When using ENOM with appropriate settings, this feature is facilitated when nominating for this gas day. When not using ENOM, please make sure that Edigas messages will have this timeframe.

Whenever possible, avoid sending in nominations in the period between 01:00 LET and 03:00 LET. Due to possible technical limitations, incoming nominations may be handled different from the normal process and therefore may introduce extra risks.
