DESFA launches market test for the expansion of the national natural gas system

Greece’s natural gas transmission system operator DESFA is launching a Market Test for the allocation of future firm capacity in the National Natural Gas System (NNGS). The objective of the Market Test is to enable DESFA to efficiently design projects that will cover the needs of existing and future users of the NNGS.

Given the significant increase in connection requests for new firm transmission capacity or the enhancement of the already offered transmission capacity at the Entry and Exit Points of the system, through this Market Test, DESFA, seeks the optimal design of projects able to meet the requirements of existing or potential users of the network, contributing to the further enhancement of the security of supply and the emergence of the country as an energy gateway for Southeastern Europe.

The relevant procedure will concern the entire system, including the LNG Facility in Revithoussa, and the NNGS interconnections with other systems.

DESFA is issuing a Call for Interest to the interested parties – domestic and international existing and potential users – to submit their non-binding interest for the allocation of future uninterrupted capacity to the NNGS. The company will thus be able to design the necessary technical upgrading projects of the NNGS more efficiently so that they can simultaneously cover the needs of multiple interested parties. In this way, on the one hand, it is becoming more probable that these projects will be successfully implemented and, on the other hand, the cost per interested party is reduced. The process of submitting non-binding requests started on 29 March 2023 and ends on 1 June 2023.
