Message From Our Sponsors: Are You a Shipper or TSO Interested in the IGB? This Is Your Opportunity
Notice to all shippers and TSOs: If you're interested in using Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria (IGB) gas transportation services, or in interconnecting your system with the IGB, now is your opportunity to express that interest.
ICGB, the joint venture company behind this project, registered under Bulgarian law, is launching a Market Test procedure as per “Updated Guidelines for management and allocation of capacity on the IGB INTERCONNECTOR according to paragraph 6 of article 36 of Directive 2009/73/EC," jointly issued by the regulatory authorities of Bulgaria (EWRC) and the regulatory authorities of Greece (RAE). (For more information on the guidelines, click here.)
All interested shippers and TSOs are now being invited to express interest in using IGB gas transportation services. The interest of other Transmission System Operators to interconnect their systems with the IGB Pipeline is also being invited.
The Market Test is divided into two phases: 1. Expression of Interest Phase (on a non-binding basis); 2. Bidding Phase (on a binding basis).
Participation in the Expression of Interest Phase is a prerequisite for subsequent participation in the Bidding Phase. The Expression of Interest Phase, where interested parties are invited to present non-binding expressions of interest, starts with the publication of the Expression of Interest Notice.
All terms and conditions for participation in the Expression of Interest Phase, and subsequent steps, are contained in the Expression of Interest Notice. The Expression of Interest Phase is being conducted in the English language.
