Mod 230: QSEC and AMSEC TimingsTransmission Workstream, January 2009Background
  • Proposal raised 15 October
  • Proposal referred to November workstream for further development and was subsequently modified
  • Proposal went out to consultation in November along with its alternate
  • Support was largely given to 230A over to 230 due to 230A retaining a September ’09 QSEC
  • Two issues raised with 230 by BGT
  • Moving AMSEC capacity release from April to October removes primary opportunity for shippers to acquire summer capacity after receiving maintenance plans
  • Moving QSEC to March and AMSEC to June exacerbates a current situation whereby the same capacity period is offered for sale at two different prices
  • Proposal sent back to workstream for further discussion
  • Addressing the Concerns
  • NG NTS’ preferred solution is to retain the proposal as currently drafted
  • Our analysis shows little evidence of AMSEC being used for the immediate summer bookings
  • Creates a tidy solution whereby Capacity Year definition can be changed
  • Provides for a timely transition to the new regime
  • Maintains the spread of auctions over the calendar year
  • Regarding concerns expressed about losing an ’09 QSEC:
  • NG NTS does not intend to include a September ’09 auction in its proposal taking into account the reasons currently included in the proposal and that there is an alternate on the table that addresses this issue
  • Neither 230 or 230A currently address the concerns about moving AMSEC- there are a couple of options for moving this forward
  • Options
  • Option 1 is to continue to hold AMSEC in February but shorten the transaction period to 18 months (from 2 years):
  • Would not be able to change definition of Capacity Year (would have to resolve through legal text drafting)
  • Condenses two long term auctions very close to each other
  • Maintenance plans finalised
  • Solves pricing issue (no overlap in AMSEC and QSEC transaction periods)
  • Option 2 is to hold AMSEC in January:
  • Would not be able to change definition of Capacity Year (would have to resolve through legal text drafting)
  • Maintain some distance between QSEC and AMSEC
  • Maintenance plans not finalised
  • Pricing issue remains
  • Views?
  • NG NTS would welcome your views on how to take this proposal forward…
