Storage Capacity Transfer

The storage user has the option to transfer their storage capacity to another entity if the storage provider consents. When transferring storage capacity, a new storage contract is concluded (or an existing storage contract of another storage user expanded) between Moravia Gas Storage and the new/other existing storage user (part or all the capacity is transferred). The transfer can only be implemented with effect from the first Gas Day of the Gas Month. If the storage provider consents to a faster transfer, it is authorised to charge a higher fee for the transfer. The storage capacity transfer price is presented in the Moravia Gas Storage Price List.

Storage Capacity Assignment

Storage capacity assignment means that an existing storage user permits the use of a certain part of their storage capacity by another user, without any amendment to their gas storage contract. After the assignment of the arranged storage capacity, the original entity remains the contractual party vis-à-vis Moravia Gas Storage. An assignment of arranged storage capacity is not approved by the storage provider but only recorded. The price for storage capacity assignment is given in the MGS Price List.

Gas Transfer

Gas may be transferred between individual contracts of a single customer or between customers based on a written instruction and in compliance with Gas Market Rules. Gas transfer between customers can only be carried out based on a joint declaration by both the customers and with the consent of Moravia Gas Storage. Gas cannot be transferred between contracts containing incompatible rules for calculating of the injection fee, whether internally for a single customer or between different customers. In the event of a difference in these parameters, the transferring party will be charged a fee pursuant to the contract to which the gas is being transferred. If the fee listed on the contract to which the gas is being transferred is lower than on the original contract, the storage provider will not refund any overpayment. The gas transfer price is given in the MGS Price List.


Operators of underground gas storage facilities and storage users using gas storage services must report specific data relating to the quantity of gas in the storage facility to ACER (Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators) based on Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council No 1227/2011 on wholesale energy market integrity and transparency (REMIT) and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014 on REMIT. Storage users have an obligation to report to ACER the quantity of gas they have stored in each virtual gas storage facility at the end of a Gas Day. If you are interested, we can send these data based on a concluded Agreement on the Fulfilment of the Reporting Obligation According to REMIT on your behalf. We provide this service completely free of charge.
