Changing system usage fees for the Hungarian gas transmission system as of 1 October 2019

With a new ordinance published on 31 May 2019, the Hungarian Energy Regulatory Authority announced the new system usage fees on the Hungarian gas system for Gas Year 19/20- at least as far as the TSO is concerned. To main changes are the actual fees and the handling of short term capacity multipliers. More in the article.

Key changes as of as of 1 October 2019

  • The fees of all types of FGSZ (the Hungarian TSO) is changing (see first table below).
  • The seasonal multipliers of the short term capacities (other than that of the domestic exit) are modified too: as opposed to the previously different seasonal multipliers (winter more expensive, summer cheaper unit price), all short term multipliers are flat throughout the year (see second table below)
  • There’s a switch in the way within-day capacity charge is calculated: before it was the same price as daily, now it will be based on an hourly calculation.
  • Compensation for the interruptible capacities will be also different: in case of interruption the compensation will be unified: 3 times the actual daily capacity cost.
  • WIth respect to the Serbian and Romanian exit, the previous – quite onerous – double capacity booking rule (domestic exit needed to be booked, too) is eliminated. These capacities cost the same as any other exit.
  • For third countries (Serbia, Ukraine) a new type of capacity is introduced: conditional capacity

If you’re interested in the new ordinance wordings (in Hungarian of course) effective as of 1 October 2019, you can find them   here (general rules), here short term multipliers) and here (annual capacity charges).
