Shift of capacity

As a shipper or a directly connected party, you can submit a request for our customised service ‘shift of capacity’. A ‘shift of capacity’ means that the already booked transport capacity at an exit point can be transferred to another exit point for a certain period. As this is a customised service, standard tariffs do not apply.

Note: Shift of capacity from or to exit points at which available capacity is being offered at an auction is not possible.

We look into each shift of capacity request separately in order to calculate the shift costs. This cost calculation is shown and explained to the shipper or the directly connected party. Based on the cost calculation the customer can decide whether this shift of capacity is desirable.

When calculating the shift costs, we also check whether the exit capacity to be shifted can be made available at the network point the capacity needs to be shifted to.

If the shipper or directly connected party decides that a shift of capacity is desirable and if the shift is technically possible in our network, then we can conclude a contract for this shift of capacity. These actions can be started after receiving a signed shift of capacity form from the client. The relevant form will be made available to the client who is asking for this service.

The costs for each shift of capacity are covered by a separate one-off invoice per shift of capacity and the adjusted and new contract positions are shown in Gasport per network point. For the period which the shift of capacity relates to, the capacities are settled based on the valid regulated TSC tariffs per network point and accompanying monthly factors regarding this period.

  • Yes, but a shift of capacity does not involve fixed combinations at the same location but a combination which does not yet exist and an additional tariff based on distance.
