Proposed Modification of Gas Conveyance Licences to Implement Decision on Harmonised Transmission Tariff

Published: 15 February 2019

Consultation opened on 15 February 2019. Consultation closed 21 March 2019.

Summary

Today the Utility Regulator publishes its consultation on and notice of proposed modifications to the gas conveyance licences held by Belfast Gas Transmission Ltd, GNI (UK) Ltd, Premier Transmission Ltd, and West Transmission Ltd.
The proposed modifications will facilitate compliance with the requirements of EU Regulation 2017/460, the Network Code on Harmonised Transmission Tariff Structures for Gas (“TAR NC”)

The proposed modifications will facilitate compliance with the requirements of EU Regulation 2017/460, the Network Code on Harmonised Transmission Tariff Structures for Gas (“TAR NC”) in two main ways:

•   Modifications regarding the consultation and publication of the seasonal multiplier factors. Seasonal multipliers factors apply to non-annual entry capacity products, for example monthly or daily capacity bookings, by applying a multiplier which either increases or decreases the relevant proportion of the annual tariff.

• Modifications to implement the UR decision on changing the capacity commodity split, which determines how transmission revenue is allocated between a charge for the use of the pipeline and a charge for the units of gas which pass through the pipeline.

Copies of the consultation can be made available in large print, Braille, audio cassette and a variety of minority languages if required. Please contact Jillian Ferris on 028 9031 1575 or email: Gas_networks_responses@uregni.gov.uk with cc to jillian.ferris@uregni.gov.uk to request this.
