‘Wheeling’ means that gas can be transported from an entry point to an exit point very close by, if the points have the same gas quality, at a tariff that is lower than the sum of the regular transport tariffs for the separate points. This is possible because no physical demand is placed on the transport network. In addition, wheeling should have no consequences for the capacity quantity to be offered at auction.
