IUK view on efficiency of flows
08 February 2013: IUK’s response
to the ”Open letter: Call for evidence on the use of the gas interconnectors
on Great Britain’s (GB’s) borders and on possible barriers
to trade” published by Ofgem, CREG, and NMa includes robust analysis
which demonstrates that, taking into account connected transporter charges,
IUK flows are highly responsive to market prices; and that Flows Against
Price Differentials (FAPDs), even when comparing day ahead prices against
actual end of day flows, are not significant in number or value.
Interconnector (UK) Limited operates a sub sea gas
pipeline and terminal facilities to provide a strategic bi-directional
link between the UK and continental European energy markets.
Interconnector Shippers are able to reach the gas markets
of continental Europe and the UK by transporting and/or trading between
the two hubs linked by the Interconnector pipeline.
