4 2. Transfer existing contracts to the VIP ENAGASTIGFDecision required YES NO At the Spanish-French border, Enagás and TIGF agree to transfer existing contracts at physical IPs to VIP. This will imply that as from October 2014 for commercial and operational purposes the physical IPs will no longer exits. This will not imply that existing contracts have to be bundled. At the Spanish-Portuguese border, Enagás will also transfer existing contracts at physical IPs to VIP without bundling existing contracts. As to the contracts signed with REN, there are no contracts to be transferred to the VIP, since no capacity is booked beyond 30 September. Capacity for the next gas year starting October 2014 will already refer to the VIP. ENAGASRENDecision required YESN.A.NO
5 3. Definition of large and small price steps According to the CAM NC two different price steps should be defined: one called “large price step” and the other one called “small price step”: Large price steps: Large price steps will be the sum of 5% of the corresponding regulated tariff for each. Small prices steps: PRISMA booking platform sets, as a default rule, that small price steps are 20% of the large price steps. In principle, TSOs will follow this default rule for all products (yearly, quarterly and monthly) However, under common agreement, TSOs can inform the NRAs of different price increments envisaged at the latest one month before the start of the relevant auction. NRAs will have one week to oppose the TSOs’ proposals if deemed necessary.

9 7. Secondary market For the year 2014, TSOs will put in place a coordinated procedure to allow shippers to trade their bundled capacity in the secondary market: The capacity allocated in the auction is allowed to be transferred by the primary holders to other users in the secondary markets. Primary holders will be able to transfer the total allocated capacity or part of it, and for the total or partial duration of the period for which it was allocated in the auction, starting the first day of a calendar month and for a complete number of calendar months. However, capacity traded in the secondary market must remain bundled and allocated at the VIP. To that aim, capacity trades on the secondary market will only be accepted by TSOs if performed in both cross-border systems, at the same time, for the same amount of capacity and period, referred to the VIP and if transferred to the same Shipper. Once there is a secondary booking platform, TSOs will have the opportunity to use this functionality.
