German gas transport system operator terranets bw has gone live with the new GAS X GRID nomination module on 6 July 2015. Running as a 24/7 system, GAS X Grid nomination supports transport nomination as well as transport matching processes operatively and serves to manage contracted load flow commitments and control energy.
Only a few weeks before, terranets bw has gone live with the GAS X Grid contracting module, which serves to handle capacity marketing tasks with the European PRISMA online platform.
As a result, marketing and handling processes can be managed with an integrated all-in-one solution that is based on a consistent data model. Complex interfaces between capacity marketing and nomination management systems are a thing of the past.
Dispatchers can rely on purpose-built nomination monitoring tools to oversee transports on multiple levels, i. e. network, network point and transport event. Backup functions allow for assisted nomination data acquisition as well as the adoption of nomination and matching values.
The central new processes in the nomination setting are:
- Determination of renomination restrictions
- Nomination processing including bottleneck checks and resolution
- Active and passive matching
- Market communication control (NOMINT, NOMRES, DELORD, DELRES etc.)
- Publication of aggregated time series to ENTSOG
The next challenges are just around the corner: The introduction of portal applications for submission of nomination and internal booking data, growing data transparency obligations (such as REMIT or hourly values for ENTSOG TP) as well as the implementation of extended requirements of national and international rules and regulations such as NC CAM, KoV and BEATE.
