Comply with new gas shipping regulations

  1. THE CONTEXT
    Due to the liberalization of the European gas market, European Parliament regulations specify that transmission system operators should have a de-coupled entry-exit system in place. An entry-exit system is a gas network access model that allows network users to book capacity rights independently at entry and exit points. Compared to the previously used point-to-point relations, this model will foster competition and help create an EU internal gas market.
    In Belgium, the new entry-exit transmission model went live on 1 October 2012.
