The capacity booking process for third party access to Spanish gas system facilities, established in the R.D. 949/2001, has been fully modified with the publishing in the Official State Gazette (BOE), dated 31 October 2015, of the R.D. 984/2015, regulating third party access to gas facilities and the management of guarantees, among other matters.
In order to simplify and facilitate capacity booking procedures, the implementation of a framework contract was developed as well as the establishment of a single telematics platform for requesting and booking capacity managed by the Technical System Manager.
According to the Resolution dated on 2nd August 2016, the State Secretary for Energy, a framework agreement for accessing to Spanish gas system facilities is developed and the technical requirements for the Single Telematic Platform for requesting and booking Capacity are established.
The framework agreement is endorsed through the digital signature of the acceptance and adhesion document, approved in the same resolution.
The booking of access services envisaged in the Framework Agreement will be made using the single telematics platform for requesting and booking of capacity. Each acquisition request for capacity entered represents a firm and fully binding commitment for the Parties, regarding the acquisition of the product in question. All capacity requests entered into the platform will be subject to a viability process and a validation process to verify that they constitute sufficient guarantees.
The platform shall generate a different addendum for each product and service contracted, with a unique identifier code, and which shall specify the facility contracted, the product type, the parameters that define the contracted amount, the start date and the duration of the service contracted.
