PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE FRAMEWORK CONTRACT FOR NATURAL GAS ACCESS AND TRANSPORT AND THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS TO THE FRAMEWORK CONTRACT FOR NATURAL GAS ACCESS AND TRANSPORT FOR GAS YEAR 2017/2018

We would herewith like to inform the interested parties that in connection with the forthcoming amendments of the regulatory frame of the offered transmission services Bulgartransgaz EAD prepared a draft Framework Contract for Natural Gas Access and Transport and the General Terms and Conditions thereto to apply as of 1 October 2017 and which we offer for public consultation.

The documents have been prepared in continuation of the consistent policy conducted by the company of improving the offered services of access and transport and the products therefor and complying with the good practices in offering transport services in the European Union.

The Framework Contract and the General Terms and Conditions thereto will considerably facilitate the possibility for network users to book day-ahead and within-day capacity products without the need for them to have booked within their portfolio booked longer products. All capacity products within the gas year will be used by network users after their booking on the RBP, and there will be no need of further signing of additional documents. Another advantage of the Framework Contract is the clear regulation of the procedure of use of Bulgartransgaz EAD Commercial Dispatching Platform (CDP) and the submission of trade notifications at the virtual commercial point (VTP) and the submission of the respective nominations for transmission to/from the VTP to the entry-exit points of the gas transmission system.  

The Framework Transport Contract and the General Terms and Conditions thereto are available here

We will expect your positions to the proposed documents by 31 July 2017 (including) sent to info@bulgartransgaz.bg in Bulgarian or English language.

We look forward to receiving your positions!
