As a shipper at the ONTRAS Gastransport GmbH you can choose between different capacity products. These products differ in their technical and physical conditions. On the capacity-marketing platform PRISMA are the following standard capacity products available.
The booked and available capacities at the network points in the ONTRAS grid are published in our Transparency tool.
Freely allocable capacity makes it possible to reach the virtual trading point in the GASPOOL market area from an entry or exit point without restriction.
ONTRAS offers solid dynamically allocable capacities (DZK) at the network point Deutschneudorf for the flow direction Exit.
This product enables capacity utilization in response to the entry pressure of the FGL 301 on a firm freely allocable base. The historic entry pressures of FGL 301 are published in the download area.
To use the fixed dynamically allocable capacity it has to be introduced in a separate balancing group or a separate sub-balancing account.
If the expected entry pressure of FGL 301 for the following day is at least 65 bar (g) the use of DZK on a firm freely allocable base is possible.
In case of an expected undershoot of the entry pressure of FGL 301 i. H. v. 65 bar (g) the following day and taking into account the network capacity, ONTRAS limits the free assignability for the following gas day and informs all the shippers registered at ONTRAS until 15:00 clock.
In this case, the off-take at the point Deutschneudorf will not be associated with the VHP GASPOOL, but with the Entry at the point VGS Storage Hub and quantities nominated and confirmed at the Entry point VGS Storage Hub must not fall below the nominated and confirmed quantities at the exit point Deutschneudorf.
Otherwise ONTRAS shortens the nomination at the exit point Deutschneudorf to the vallue nominated and confirmed at the Entry VGS Storage Hub.
Capacity with allocation restrictions enables the use of a booked entry point in a network up to one or more specified exit points, or the use of the booked exit point in a network from one or more specified entry points. The use of virtual trading points is not possible.
The "bFZK" (conditionally freely available capacity) enables capacity utilisation based on a firm and interruptible basis in the ONTRAS network area depending on the specific temperature conditions. The allocation of the firm and interruptible share is determined by a defined temperature, which is displayed in the download area.
ONTRAS currently offers this type of capacity at the Peckensen UGS and Allmenhausen UGS. "bFZK" must be selected in PRISMA to book this product. Further details on this offer are also regulated in our Supplementary Terms and Conditions of ONTRAS.
Interruptible capacities allow access to the virtual trading point in the GASPOOL market area, provided that the network point is not fully utilised by transport customers with firm capacities. Further regulations on the interruption of interruptible capacity can be found in our Network Access Conditions.
