Invitation to tender for fuel gas

Network operators need fuel gas for operating their gas pipeline networks. GASCADE, NGT and ONTRAS are calling for tenders for their fuel gas requirements. All gas traders are invited to take part in this call for tenders for the sale and supply of fuel gas with a common consumption demand of GASCADE and NGT of approximately 2,9 billion kWh/a and approximately 0,1 billion kWh/a for ONTRAS.

GASCADE, NGT and ONTRAS are requesting tenders for the sale and supply of fuel gas in the period from 1 April 2017 to 1 April 2018, at the virtual trading point GASPOOL.

The offer to sell and supply fuel gas will be based on a master agreement and an individual agreement as an annex to the separate master agreement. GASCADE, NGT and ONTRAS will conclude these agreements with the gas traders who win the call for tenders, whereby GASCADE and NGT will conclude their master agreements and the individual agreements with the same trader. The individual agreement to the master agreement will govern in particular the prices of the quantities of fuel gas quantity to be procured.

Conclusion of a master agreement, including the associated individual agreement, does not mean that fuel gas is sold to GASCADE, NGT and ONTRAS. If required, GASCADE, NGT and ONTRAS will purchase the actual quantity of fuel gas as a spot market product (Daily Reference Price) by placing individual orders in form of daily bands.
