There are two parts to our grid: the main grid and the regional grid. The main grid lies
upstream and operates between France and Spain in both directions at the Pirineos VIP to
provide a link with adjacent transporters’ grids in France and Spain. It also allows access to
our storage sites. The regional grid lies downstream and enables the gas to be routed to
industrial or distributor customers. For that reason, we develop a range of products and
additional services for all types of gas transport that you may be looking for on our grid.
We offer two types of transport product, covering both the transport of gas in both directions between France and Spain, and supplies to customers in our regional area: Upstream and Downstream. The aim is to meet all your needs.
fixed or interruptible transport capacities, available over different time frames (annual, quarterly, monthly, daily or intra-day);
our products satisfy the allocation capacity management rules (CAM), and also meet the needs of commercial flexibility and congestion procedure management mechanisms (CMP);
our transport capacities are traded in accordance with the ENTSOG calendar, on the European PRISMA auction platform.
UBI service: to provide flexibility
OPTIM service: to optimise your nominations
Secondary Market: to exchange capacities
Transport Balancing Service (SET): to balance without penalty pricing
Maintenances & réductions: to be informed of maintenance work
Vigilance service: to be informed of vigilance information and triggering
Our transport capacities enable you route your gas from the main grid to:
Interface Consumer Points (PIC);
Transport Distribution Interface Points (PITD) ;
or gas from the Transport Production Entry Interface Point (PITPE) to the main
transfer of usage rights, so industrial customers can manage their own self-supply arrangements;
delegation of capacity subscriptions, to offer industrial customers protection against the unexpected;
daily capacity subscriptions by prior request, for forward planning of subscriptions.
The additional products and services we can offer you are set out in the transport contract. It sets out the terms under which we commit to routing the quantities of energy made available to you, from one or more entry points to the specified delivery points.
We offer three storage products:
with varying draw-off volumes and speeds to meet all the needs of our storage shipper customers.
Those storage products are traded through a public auction system, on dates set by the Energy Regulation Commission (CRE).
Full details of our auctions can be found on our customer portal, along with a link to STOREPLACE, our digital storage auction platform.
We offer a large range of additional services to go with storage products. These include the eight main services we have developed:
the transfer of capacities to finance gas in storage, and to optimise your storage costs;
the secondary market, with the benefit of access to our customer portfolio;
Injection Booster, to boost your injection capacity free of charge;
“Use it and Buy it” (UBI), to give you greater flexibility in available injection/draw-off capacities;
the flexible gates, to take advantag of market conditions,
