New Regulation of the Hungarian Seasonal Summer Capacity Regime for Natural Gas as of 1 October 2019. Changes Are Coming!

The Hungarian gas system has had a specific summer capacity booking regime – which allowed some specific customers who mainly consumed natural gas during the summer period to take advantage of significantly lower system usage fees (5% of the yearly fee for the whole summer, and in some circumstances for Q4). Now, however, the rules are getting tighter, and although the seasonal capacity regime stays in respect of DSO systems – not any more for the TSO though – it will get considerable more expensive as of Gas Year 19/20. This means it will not pay off for most. If you’re interested in the specifics, please switch to Hungarian or get in touch with us.

The Unstoppable (?) Rise of Gas Prices

Article about the recent moves on the gas market. Points made:

  2. This is the result of many factors: rising demand in Asia, overall price increase of the energy complex, relatively low storage levels in Europe.
  3. The outlook is ambiguous as always. A lot of premium has been built up in these price levels, however all depends on the upcoming winter as well as on the volatile commodity market.
