1. Information about maintenance works on Austrian transmission system

    Transmission system operator Plinovodi d.o.o. informs network users that Austrian transmission system operators Gas Connect Austria GmbH (GCA) in Trans Austria Gasleitung GmbH (TAG) have published the list of planned maintenance works and reduction of capacities at relevant points caused by maintenance works on Austrian transmission pipeline TAG. Because of mentioned planned maintenance works the transport in Austrian transmission system and on Austrian border point Murfeld-Exit will be reduced.

    From published data about reductions of transmission capacities in Austrian transmission system it is evident that main transmission limitations at interconnection point Murfeld/Ceršak will be in period from 4th September 2017 (6:00) to 8th September 2017 (18:00), where GCA published 100% reduction of firm capacities on point Murfeld-Exit. Information about reductions is published also on web pages of Plinovodi d.o.o. in the area “Planned maintenance”.

    Balancing group leaders (network users) are asked to consider the information about reductions of transmission capacities in their nominations for interconnection point Murfeld/Ceršak and match the quantity with their suppliers on Austrian side of interconnection point. All Balancing group leaders are also asked to ensure that their total daily nominated quantities at exit points are balanced with total daily nominated quantities at entry points also for mentioned reduction periods.
