Results of the 2017 customers’ satisfaction Barometer

We place the satisfaction of our customers at the heart of our concerns. That’s why every year we carry out a survey intended to better meet your needs and expectations. The 2017 Customer satisfaction survey took place from May to June and was conducted by an external & specialised consulting firm. We wish to thank all customers who took time to answer it.

Discover the results of the 2017 survey!

Every year we make a 20€ donation to the "Restos du Cœur" of Paris for each questionnaire completed. Thanks to your feedbacks, 49 people will benefit from a daily hot meal throughout the winter.

Locational Spread : something new in the locational products

Within the scope of congestion management during winter 2017/2018, GRTgaz set a market-based mechanism called “Locational Spread”. It consists in buying gas located downstream of the congestion and simultaneously selling gas located upstream of the congestion. TIGF makes its contractual points Lussagnet & Pirineos available and co-funds the locational product platform developed by Powernext.

Eventually, Highly Modulated Sites will also be included in calls for Locational Spread.

In order to be involved in call for tenders from November 6th onward, having signed the new version of the agreement or the related amendment of existing agreement is required.

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 2017 to March 2018. Additional capacities are available in parallel on Gassco’s network.

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 Taisnières H will be commercialized as interruptible capacity instead of firm capacity during the same period.  The monthly firm capacity at Taisnières H 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 0 to 20 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.

Optiflow: for more capacity and flexibility during maintenance periods

Optiflow enables you to increase the availability of your capacities during maintenance periods on the core network. Thanks to Optiflow, the restrictions are mutualised on several entry points / exit points called “Superpoints”. If you subscribe capacities on several of the following points: Dunkerque LNG, Dunkerque, Alveringem, Taisnières H, Obergailbach, Oltingue, you get more flexibility to optimise your capacity on each point.

Whether you use only one point or several points, thanks to Optiflow you will enjoy a broader / wider UBI offer. Moreover, the maintenance program display will change for everybody.
