More Dunkerque!

In order to face increasing demand from shippers, GRTgaz renews for the next winter the offer “ More Dunkerque”: an extra 20 GWh/d monthly firm capacity at Dunkerque IP will be commercialized from November 2018 to March 2019.

The total monthly firm capacity of Dunkerque IP increases from 570 to 590 GWh/d during this period. The level of interruptible capacity remains unchanged (36 GWh/d).

To this end, 20 GWh/d of firm capacity at Virtualys in the Belgium to France direction will be commercialized as interruptible capacity instead of firm capacity during the same period.  The monthly firm capacity at Virtualys therefore decreases to 620 GWh/d instead of 640 GWh/d at present (plus 30 GWh/d overbooking capacity). And the level of interruptible capacity grows from 4 to 24 GWh/d, commercialized following CAM rules.

These additional capacities are commercialized via OSP on Trans@ctions each Month M-1,  the first one from 1st to 11th of next October. Unsold capacities will be proposed as daily capacities.
