Update on Non-Transmission Charges | February 2023

During December 2022, we shared an update on the indicative prices for General Non-Transmission Services charges for October 2023 and subsequent years, including drivers of the changes and how these influence charges.

We would now like to share some updates on our proposed approach to updating General Non-Transmission Services charges for October 2023 and future years.

Exit Constraints | December 2022

Bridget Hartley, Head of Physical Operations talked through and responded to a number of your queries around identifying and managing exit capacity constraints.

This webinar was for our customers who off-take gas from the NTS (buy exit capacity) and explained exit constraints from an operational, commercial and Network Emergency Management perspective.

We are pleased to be able to share with you the full set of questions covered during, and submitted to, the Exit Constraint webinar, held on 16th December. 

Following the Christmas and New Year break, we were asked to also include written responses to the many questions answered during the webinar. We have therefore added these alongside our answers to the Slido questions and grouped answers together to help you navigate the document. In addition, we have created a table of acronyms, which we hope will provide you with further clarity.

Update on Non-Transmission Charges | December 2022

In July, we shared an update and some indicative prices for Non-Transmission Charges, notably the General Non-Transmission Services Entry and Exit charges, and some of the drivers behind them.

This webinar is an opportunity to share some updates on the impacts of changing costs after the publication of the October 2022 Non-Transmission charges and how such costs are driving Non-Transmission charges into the future, key drivers behind them and for you to ask any questions.

The final prices for October 2022 were published on 29th July and this update will look forwards to how changing costs impact future charges.

Gas Demand Side Response (DSR) | November 2022

Join us on the subject of Gas Demand Side Response (Gas DSR). This follows recently approved reforms to the Gas DSR arrangements under UNC Modification 0822, which obliges NGG to run an annual invitation to offer process seeking commitments by shippers in advance, on behalf of large consumers, to offer DSR quantities for which they would be compensated at prices they define. NGG will be launching the first invitation process on 18th November 2022, for which a pre-communication was issued on Friday 4th November 2022.

The purpose of this webinar is to:

  • Re-cap on the key elements of the DSR reforms
  • Promote participation in this invitation event by encouraging the necessary discussions between shippers, suppliers and large gas consumers
  • Elicit feedback from shippers and consumers about intentions to participate
  • Encourage shippers and large consumers to respond to a NGG questionnaire about the invitation process and how Gas DSR could be further reformed to broaden access.

Bacton Terminal Strategy Playback | January 2022

Over the summer 2021, we worked with you to understand your needs of the site.  This insight has been fed into the options and delivery programme which we shared in a webinar in November 2021. We have since spent time reviewing and triangulating stakeholder feedback and play back what we’ve heard and what we’re doing on the back of this.

St Fergus

Stakeholders told us the St Fergus terminal is a site of fundamental importance to the UK in that it provides flexibility, supports security of supply and supports access to UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) gas, helping to keep gas prices low.
We spoke to stakeholders to understand their thoughts on the potential future charging and commercial arrangements for the St Fergus Terminal. We’ve spent time reviewing and triangulating your feedback and would like to share our findings with you.
