New fees and neutrality charges effective from October 2018

Berlin (Germany). GASPOOL Balancing Services GmbH has now published the new neutrality charges and fees it has set for its market area with effect from 1 October 2018. The balancing neutrality charge that is applied to gas supplies to non-daily metered "SLP" exit points will go up, from 0.20 €/MWh to 0.73 €/MWh. The "RLM" balancing neutrality charge – the one charged for gas supplies to intraday-metered exit points – will also raise from 0.08 €/MWh to 0.26 €/MWh.

As of the start of the new gas year GASPOOL will also reduce the fee it charges for use of the GASPOOL Hub, the virtual trading point (VTP) of the GASPOOL market area, slightly from 0.1500 cents/MWh to 0.1300 cents/MWh.

The gas quality conversion fee applied in the market area will remain at the applicable fee cap and charged at 0.45 €/MWh from October 2018. As is already the case today, no conversion fee will be charged for the conversion of gas from low CV to high CV quality.

The conversion neutrality charge applied by GASPOOL will raise from 0.017 €/MWh to 0.075 €/MWh.
