  1. Workshop Slovenian Gas Market in the Region

    In Plinovodi d.o.o., we are aware of the importance of Slovenian gas market integration in the regional gas market developments. This is why we have organized seventh, already traditional workshop on Wednesday, 12th September 2018 under the name “Slovenian Gas Market in the Region”.

    The purpose of the workshop was to highlight the importance of an effective natural gas market, the current and future role of natural gas, and the adequacy and development of infrastructure. The importance and interest in these topics was confirmed by the presence of more than 120 participants.

    By attending and cooperating at the workshop we were honoured by Italian and Hungarian state representatives, representatives of the ACER and Energy Agency as a national energy regulator, the Hungarian and Slovenian Energy Research Institute REKK representatives and representatives of all neighbouring transmission system operators.

    In addition to the invited speakers and representatives of the company Plinovodi, the diversity of the participants significantly contributed to the visibility of the workshop. Among the attendees, there were also the representatives of system users, natural gas suppliers, balancing group leaders, representatives of the media and other stakeholders in the natural gas market. More about the workshop can be found on this link “Workshop“.

  2. Non-binding market demand assessment for incremental capacities of the Hungarian-Slovenian bidirectional gas flow

    We hereby inform you that, according to the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/459 of 16 March 2017 establishing a network code on capacity allocation mechanisms in gas transmission systems and repealing Regulation (EU) No 984/2013 (hereinafter referred to as Regulation), the transmission system operators cooperate in the processes of assessing market demand for incremental capacity at the joint interconnection points.

    The demand for bidirectional flow between the Hungarian and Slovenian market, which in turn enables connection of the Hungarian and Italian market, will be assessed in the process of collecting non-binding indicators.

    Your eventual non-binding indicators for the demand for transmission capacities in both directions between Hungarian and Slovenian transmission system should be made for periods (gas years) after 2023 and should in accordance with the Article 26(8) of the Regulation contain:

    1. The amount of capacity or volumes of natural gas for which you indicate the demand,
    2. Information on non-binding demand indications which were or will be submitted to other transmission system operators, in case such indications are linked to each other, such as demand for capacities at several related interconnection points.

    We would like to emphasize that the submitted indications by the network users in no way represent a commitment of either the network users of the transmission system operators nor does it incur any costs. Its sole purpose is to assess the subsequent steps in compliance with the Regulation.

    Plinovodi d.o.o. will publish in agreement with adjacent TSO FGSZ Ltd the results in a Demand Assessment Report (DAR) according with Articles 26 to 28 of the Regulation.

    We kindly ask you to submit your non-binding indication by filling the attached form Capacity-Demand-Survey-2018 and return it to our email address SKR@plinovodi.si no later than October 3 2018.

    With this, we would like to thank the bidders who have already submitted their indications until today, which will be included in DAR.

    Yours sincerely,
