Long-term Storage Capacity

Long-term storage capacity is our main service. This storage capacity can only be reserved through transparent auctions in accordance with the Energy Act and with the Gas Market Rules. Anybody interested in participating in an auction must confirm before the start of the auction, that they meet the conditions for participation in the Auction System. Storage capacity is offered as a combination of working gas volume and firm/interruptible injection and withdrawal rates or as various combinations of these elements. The specific parameters of the offered product are always defined in the Auction Terms & Conditions document.

Auctions are announced for the following contract types, which are governed by the Rules of the Gas Storage Facility Operator:

  • Annual gas storage contract with firm/interruptible capacity
  • Monthly gas storage contract with firm/interruptible capacity
  • Gas storage contract for unused storage capacity
