PUBLICATIONS ACCORDING TO CHAPTER 3 ANNEX I OF REGULATION (EC) № 715/2009

REGULATION (EC) № 715/2009 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 13 July 2009 on conditions for access to the natural gas transmission networks stipulates Transmission system operators (TSOs) to publish information regarding the services they offer and the relevant conditions applied, together with the technical, tariff and operational information necessary for network users to gain effective network access.

In order to enhance market transparency, under the coordination of European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG), the transmission network operators developed common standardized format for publication of the required data.

Bulgartransgaz EAD as member of ENTSOG has implemented the Transparency Template in this section of the web page. It contains information about the natural gas transmission network and services offered by Bulgartransgaz EAD, in accordance with Chapter 3 of Annex № 1 to Regulation (EC) № 715/2009.
