Load flow commitments

Tendering of load flow commitments for usage during calendar year 2025

The Thyssengas GmbH requires load flow commitments for the operation of the grid within the market area Trading Hub Europe. These serve as an instrument for the offering of firm, freely associable entry and exit capacity for transportation within the Thyssengas grid at the largest possible extent.

Thyssengas thus fulfills its obligation to take all economically reasonable measures needed for the offering of firm, freely associable entry and exit capacity at the largest possible extent, in order to prevent an intervention based on § 16 Sec. 2 EnWG [German Energy Industry Act] in order to maintain the security and reliability of the gas supply system. If there are not sufficient economically reasonable measures available after this tender, the likelihood that measures according to § 16 Sec. 2 EnWG have to be taken increases significantly for all shippers in the market area.

Thyssengas invites tenders for positive H-gas load flow commitments for the usage period from January to March and from October to December 2025.

The tender begins on 15.06.2024 and ends on 15.07.2024 at 12 am. The offers have to be released using the offer form in a PDF-format by e-mail to The signed master agreement (version as of 15.05.2024) must be submitted in a PDF-format by e-mail to the aforementioned mailbox, at the latest by the time of the submission of the offer, as well.

Tenderers are bound to their bids until 15.08.2024.

The lot size of the load flow commitments is 10 MWh/h.

Please see the linked table showing the demand for load flow commitments in the individual months.

To determine the ranking of the tenders Thyssengas uses the lump sum price as a basis. The lump sum price of a tendered lot for a month is defined as the sum of the demand charge and the product of the unit charge, the lot size and the predicted duration of usage. For this tender Thyssengas determines the predicted duration of usage to the amount of 24 hours. The predicted duration of usage will be used exclusively to identify the ranking of the tenders; it does not give information about the real duration of usage of the load flow commitment. For this purpose the rules of the particular master agreement and the processing rules for the call-off of load flow commitments apply exclusively.

Bids may be submitted for individual months in the usage period and accepted for individual months by Thyssengas.

The tenders are open to all suppliers who have pre-qualified and accept the terms for the pre-qualification and tendering procedure (version as of 16.05.2022).
