Introduction ENTSOG CAM Development Progress Following on from December’s Workstream update regarding the re- consultation on the CAM Code and Stakeholder responses ENTSOG have amended the Code in-line with Stakeholder feedback Moves away from GB Entry regime (as was originally proposed in the draft Code) Both CAM and CMP relate to IP points only within the European Union Timelines described later in presentation

(CAM) - High Level Principles Principles of Co-operation Standardisation of communication - Included an agreed approach to communication procedures within NC. The Code would commit TSOs to working together to develop agreed communication procedures Gas Year - 1 st Oct Allocation of firm capacity Capacity reservation – at least 10% of technical capacity to be released for shorter duration products* subject to ACER clarity on definition Standard Capacity products – Yearly (15yrs), then quarterly (for Year 1), monthly (month ahead), Daily (Day ahead) and Within Day.
(CAM) - High Level Principles Allocation of firm capacity (cont) Within-day capacity allocation - Sell within-day firm capacity via auctions and (due to the Guideline text) a potential to nominate interruptible capacity within-day via a non-auction method (although needs to be the same method either side of the IP) Auction algorithm Longer duration products - Multiple round ascending clock - greater perceived simplicity, lower vulnerability to strategic bidding (since price discovery measures are embedded in the design) and ability to adjust bids or step out of an auction in response to the progress of auctions at other IPs Number of price steps in a volume based auction - Unlimited number of price steps, included is a time limit to avoid an overlap with the next relevant auction Minimisation of unsold capacity - Small price steps. Approach reduces unsold capacity while avoiding pro rata Short Term Products – Day Ahead & Within Day – Uniform price
(CAM) - High Level Principles Cross-border contracted capacity Mandatory bundling - Partially unbundled default rule approach Under this approach, the capacity to be bundled after implementation of the default rule would be determined by the lower of the aggregated bookings on either side of the IP Non-matching capacity would remain unbundled and would be split proportionally amongst network users Sunset Clause Now included in final CAM Code to satisfy CAM Guideline Forces Users to agree amongst themselves the capacity held (as a bundle) either side of the IP point Max timeline 5 yrs (after Code comes into force)
(CAM) - High Level Principles Tariffs Revenue Equivalence - Introduces a non-arbitrary and reasoned approach to setting the tariffs for different product duration Allows system users to procure capacity according to their identified needs by minimising any undue incentive to book capacity before such a need is identified Avoids cross-subsidies between network users – Users who require highly variable gas flows, the levels of which are only known shortly before the actual gas flow, will be able to match capacity bookings to their requirements by building a highly variable product profile
(CAM) - High Level Principles Booking Platforms – The Code includes next steps and timings Sets out Next steps in the process to achieving a single EU platform No later than 1 year after the Code comes into force, ENTSOG shall publish a report describing the number and operation of existing and planned booking platforms Based on this report – a market consultation process to identify the market’s needs with respect to booking platforms; which shall last at most 12 months and shall end with the publication of a comprehensive report setting out the market’s requirements for booking platforms by ENTSOG The report will also provide an assessment of costs and time needed to reduce the number of platforms or to eventually establish an EU-wide booking platform meeting the market’s requirements. A corresponding action plan towards a single EU wide booking platform, and a timetable for its implementation shall be part of this report. Interaction with CMP Guidelines? ACER tasked Frontier Economics to review ENTSOG CAM auction design

Introduction ENTSOG CMP Update Continued to influence the Commission on the content and impacts of the Guideline Proposal Held discussions in particular on the direct impacts to the CAM Code European TSOs lobbying relevant Ministries in preparation for the Comitology process Commission issued Impact Analysis documents mid Jan 12
CMP – High Level Principles Capacity increase via oversubscription and buy-back Provides TSO’s with an incentive to make additional amounts of Firm Capacity available over and above the technical capacity Additional amount above technical capacity to be offered ‘upfront’ in an auction The technical capacity is to be allocated before any oversubscribed incentive based capacity Joint Regulator & TSOs to co-operate to develop best practices Incentive schemes needed within and across member states IPs
CMP – High Level Principles Firm Day-ahead use-it-or-lose-it mechanism Restriction of re-nomination rights (w.e.f 1 st July 2016) subject to Regulator decision at IP Surrender of booked capacity Users can surrender capacity at any time to the TSO Obligations remain until reallocated Unsold capacity to be sold before surrendered capacity
CMP – High Level Principles Long Term use-it-or-lose-it mechanism Removes current firm contractual rights where Users do not utilise the capacity over a defined period Information provision Data is to be made available on one central platform Interaction with CAM?
CMP Guidelines The Commission published the latest version of the Draft Guidelines – 19 th December 2011 GB Stakeholder meeting held with DECC 13 th January 2012 Written views provided to DECC The first Comitology meeting for Member States held 26 th January 2012

EU Tariffs Update Transmission Workgroup 2nd February 2012
ENTSOG response to ACER Tariff Scoping consultation ACER is expected to issue a Tariff Scoping consultation – January 2012 Responses are invited by [x] March 2012 Following response analysis by ACER the Commission will decide whether ACER will be invited to write the Framework Guideline or use the Comitology guideline route.
Potential tariff codification process(es) ACER Consultation on FG scope Commission decides whether to invite ACER to write FG or go COM guideline route MarchSummer 2012 Response analysis by ACER September FG drafting by ACER, 2 month formal consultation, 6 months overall until submission to COM Invitation letter Timeline is very indicative COM scrutinizes FG and invites ENTSOG February 2013 ENTSOG runs 12 month Network code process Commission drafts guidelines and sends them directly to comitology Alternative or cumulative
Interoperability Update Transmission Workgroup 2 nd February 2012
Interoperability Framework Guideline We now expect ACER’s consultation on the Framework Guideline to be published in March This is to allow the regulators more time: To complete ‘problem identification analysis’ – i.e. what are the genuine technical barriers To take further views from the Interoperability Expert Group (meeting scheduled this month in Ljubljana) To finalise their thinking on the scope National Grid NTS will continue to argue that the scope should be limited to interconnectors, not all entry / exit points
ENTSOG TYNDP – Stakeholder Joint Working Sessions
TYNDP : Stakeholder Joint Working Sessions The Ten Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) will be the 3rd edition of the non-binding Union-wide plan of infrastructure development and will build on the past experience and feedback received. Based on ENTSOG best practices a series of Stakeholder Joint Working Sessions have been set-up on the following topics: Infrastructure Demand Supply Market Integration Security of Supply
TYNDP : Stakeholder Joint Working Sessions The first of the TYNDP SJWS took place on 24 th January. The morning session was focused on the ‘Infrastructure’ topic. The methodology used in the previous TYNDP and the feedback received from stakeholders was discussed. The afternoon session covered both ‘Supply and Demand’, and again an overview of the process and methodology used in the previous TYNDP was discussed. Stakeholders then outlined some potential improvements.
TYNDP : Stakeholder Joint Working Sessions ENTSOG will take away high level proposals from stakeholders and at the next SJSW on these topics come back with a solid proposal, encompassing the key points from the discussion The next SJWS is going to be on Wednesday 15 th February in Brussels The topics covered will be Market Integration, Security of Supply and an overview of the ENTSOG Network Modelling Tool As always the SJWS are open to all stakeholders who wish to take part ENTSOG maintains a register and will pro-actively notify those on the register about developments in this and other areas of ENTSOG’s work. Please write to if you want to be included in this ing list.
