The capacity products as announced by Bulgartransgaz EAD have undergone a bundle procedure in line with article 19, §1 of the Regulation. When buying bundled capacity the network user received entry and exit capacity on both sides of the interconnection point.

If bundling of the firm capacity products on the RBP proves impossible and if there will be differences between the technical and bundled capacity products, such capacities shall be offered as unbundled capacity products (ensuring capacity at the respective interconnection point only in Bulgartransgaz EAD gas transmission network).

Please note that the capacity of the transfer point is allocated in line with the bundled product principle (the user receives capacity on both sides of the point) regardless that the capacity will be indicated on the RBP as unbundled for technical reasons.

We would like to note that interested parties who are not registered network users of Bulgartransgaz EAD gas transmission network in line with 10а of the Rules for access to the gas transmission and/or gas distribution networks and the gas storage facilities in force as of 27.12.2016 must submit an Access Application together with the following documents:

- trade register excerpt in the applicant’s country proving applicant’s updated legal status;

- excerpt from the trade register or other competent authority in line with the national legislation, proving that the applicant is not in insolvency proceedings and has not been declared in liquidation or insolvency.

Template of the Access Application can be found here.

The Application together with the accompanying documents can be submitted at any time within the working days – in person, via registered mail or courier, in Bulgartransgaz EAD main office, Sofia, residential area Lyulin 2, 66 Pancho Vladigerov blvd. or by an e-mail to: access@bulgartransgaz.bg

The allocation procedures for the yearly, quarterly, monthly, daily and within–the-day capacity products will be carried out in line with the time tables set out in the auction calendar of ENTSOG.
