Firm unbundled capacities

Our gas storage product "firm unbundled capacity" enables you to book separately the capacities working gas volume, injection and/ or withdrawal capacity according to your requirements.

You may choose the booking period for firm injection and/ or withdrawal capacity in a flexible way. You are only required to have booked a firm working gas volume covering the entire booking period.

Interruptible unbundled capacities

At a reduced price we offer you additional interruptible individual services in form of injection and/or withdrawal capacities.

If you as a storage customer want to book interruptible injection and/or withdrawal capacities, you need to have booked a firm working gas volume covering the entire booking period.


To increase flexibility we offer our storage customers the chance of Day-ahead-Utilisation. In this way you as storage customer can use for the following day non-nominated injection and withdrawal capacities.

The only condition for this Day-ahead-Utilisation is that you have a firm working gas volume and that you have concluded a framework agreement for this service.

The framework agreement enables you for the period of the contract to nominate probably available injection and withdrawal capacities which are published a day ahead of use and to use them on the following day should they actually be available. In the storage portal we publish daily at 16:00h (CET) a forecast of the injection and withdrawal capacities which are likely to be available for Day-ahead-Utilisation.

For further details please refer to the General terms and Conditions for Day-Ahead-Utilisation in the download area.
