LDC exit capacity

LDC exit capacity is made available by GTS for exit points connected with the distribution network. At these points, gas flows from the national grid into the distribution network. The capacity at these points does not need to be pre booked by shippers with an LB licence, the so-called programme-responsible parties. The capacity is charged monthly in retrospect by the programme-responsible party, based on details from the connection register. These data can, if necessary, be corrected 4 months later.

If a programme-responsible party wants to inject gas into the distribution network, he needs to have a B licence. You can read more about licencing on our website, under ‘Licencing’.

The connection register, which is managed by Energie Data Services Nederlands (EDSN), determines the standard yearly usage for profile customers and the maximum usage for telemetry large-scale users. Based on the yearly usage, maximum usage and the factors and fractions mentioned later, the capacity is calculated which a programme-responsible party required in the last month to deliver gas to its customers at LDC exit points.

The capacity to be invoiced is invoiced by GTS to the programme-responsible party, who charges on these costs to the supplier (unless the programme-responsible party is also the supplier).

The profile factors, hourly fractions and monthly fractions are determined annually; the fit factors are determined monthly. The factors and fractions are published on the GTS website under LDC exit capacity and are used in the invoicing process. For a detailed process description of the allocation of the LDC exit capacity and related costs, see Transmission Code Gas article 2.1.2_b to 2.1.2_g
