2-й Технический Семинар: Сетевые коды рынка природного газа
December 7-8, 2017 // Budapest, Hungary
Sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)
Organized by the the Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA) and
The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC)
Topical Areas to be Covered
The USAID-supported workshop, organized by ERRA and NARUC, will explore regulators’ role in facilitating gas infrastructure development, network integration, and cross-border trade. The two-day workshop will feature presentations and case studies covering two technical areas where regulators play a critical role: ten year network development plan and Transmission Grid Code development.
While natural gas transmission system operators (TSOs) play a predominant role in both developing network development plans and drafting Transmission Grid Codes, regulators must review, approve, and monitor them and oversee their implementation. At times, they must also directly collaborate with TSOs to ensure that regulatory requirements are adequately addressed and incorporated. In light of this, workshop presentations and discussions will cover:
- Regulators’ Role in Reviewing, Approving, and Monitoring Natural Gas Ten Year Network Development Plans
– The workshop will provide an overview explaining the basics of how network development plans are constructed.
– Presentations will explore how regulators can devise a methodology and/or select criteria to conduct economic and financial appraisals of gas infrastructure projects and overall network development plans, including:
- Financial viability of projects (i.e., impact on average use-of-system tariff)
- Economic evaluation of supply source diversification, improved security of supply, energy cost reduction, and environmental benefits
- Assumptions / inputs into models or methodologies that are used in the regulators’ evaluations.
- Regulators’ Role in Harmonizing Transmission Grid Codes to Support Regional Integration
The workshop will cover best practices and case studies from a diverse set of countries on harmonizing Transmission Grid Codes to support regional integration and trade and how regulators can effectively partner with utilities to facilitate this harmonization. Presentations will discuss both regulators and TSOs’ roles and the transitional steps that can be taken to make progress towards compliance with the EU Third Energy Package and implementation of EC Network Codes. Specific subject areas to be discussed include:
- Delivery of gas at entry / withdrawal at exit points
- Capacity booking
- Congestion management
- Nominations / renominations
- Quantity allocation
