For those objectives, an online survey was launched by ACER/TF CAM: TSOs answer the questions by mid February. NRAs will review the answers and complete their part by the end of February. The responses will be analysed and evaluated. The Report on CMP implementation will be finished by May/June.

12 IV.1. Iberian Gas Hub: update on the study on models for integration of the Spanish and Portuguese gas markets 0. GENERAL OBJECTIVE. In order to assess the feasibility for the development of a gas hub, the study analyzes different aspects of the current gas market situation in Spain and Portugal, including prices in the gas market, as the most important factors.. The study covers three different models for Iberian gas market integration, comparing the advantages and disadvantages for each model. Market Area Model. Trading Region Model. Market with Implicit Capacity Allocation.
13 1. The Market Area Model (full integration) Market Area A Country A Country B Market Area AB Cross- border market area National market area Final customers (A) Final customers (B) VP Final customers (A) VP Features. The adjacent transmission and distribution networks situated in the same geographical area (and well interconnected) are forged into a single entry/exit system.. The market area includes all gas transmission and distribution systems of participating countries (one single market area).. The market area enables a single wholesale market with a single virtual point.. The market region has a single balancing system (with a single balancing entity and balancing rules). IV.1. Iberian Gas Hub: update on the study on models for integration of the Spanish and Portuguese gas markets
14 2. The Trading Region Model (full integration, except balancing) Country ACountry B Trading Region AB End user zone A End user zone B Final customers (A)Final customers (B) VP Features:. The adjacent transmission and distribution networks that are situated in the same geographical area and that are well interconnected are forged into a single entry/exit system with a single virtual point.. The Trading Region has two end-user balancing zones. The balancing in each end-user zone is performed according to the respective national rules (imbalances are managed by the national balancing entities). IV.1. Iberian Gas Hub: update on the study on models for integration of the Spanish and Portuguese gas markets
15 3. Common Wholesale market with implicit allocation of capacity Features:. A certain amount of the interconnection capacity is reserved for implicit allocation.. In this model, gas trade and allocation capacity are assigned simultaneously via a gas exchange (or a gas trading platform).. The implicit allocation mechanism will allocate cross- border capacity on the basis of the bids and offers to buy and sell gas on a functioning gas exchange on either side of the border. Thus, capacity allocation (and gas flow) will follow the market signals. Market participants make “bids” and “offers” for buying or selling of gas Interconnection capacity is being reserved for implicit allocation The implicit mechanism matches those bids and offer with the highest price differences Capacity is automatically assigned once a trade is made until cross-border capacity is sold out or prices have converged IV.1. Iberian Gas Hub: update on the study on models for integration of the Spanish and Portuguese gas markets
16 4. Preliminary evaluation of the models Market Area ModelTrading Region Model Wholesale market with implicit allocation of capacity Requires substantial legal and regulatory alignment among Spain and Portugal (implementation will take many years). Requires very good interconnection capacity. Can be considered a long term objective for the Iberian Market. Requires substantial legal and regulatory alignment among Spain and Portugal. Requires very good interconnection capacity. Co-habitation of one single virtual point with two end-user balancing zones (possibly with different balancing rules) is really a challenge. Can be applied with limited interconnection capacity (the markets will decouple when the interconnection capacity is fully used). Does not require a high level on harmonization of national legislations (implementation can be faster). Will directly promote market liquidity in the common Iberian gas hub. Can be a first step for the Iberian gas market integration. IV.1. Iberian Gas Hub: update on the study on models for integration of the Spanish and Portuguese gas markets
