Increased gas capacity between Hungary and Slovakia will be offered from July 2024

Slovakia’s and Hungary’s gas transmission system operators, Eustream and FGSZ announced that based on a market demand assessment run in 2023, the offered capacity at the interconnection point (IP) Veľké Zlievce/Balassagyarmat will be increased by 50 per cent, to 25,441 megawatt-hours per day in the direction of Hungary-Slovakia.

This increased capacity will be offered in the annual capacity auction on 1 July 2024 for the gas years of 2024/2025- 2038/2039.

Given that no investments are required on Eustream’s and FGSZ’s sides for the capacity increase at the IP Veľké Zlievce/Balassagyarmat, the incremental capacity project under current conditions can be considered concluded for now.

In the event that Eustream and FGSZ agree on adjusting the respective technical parameters and the Hungarian regulatory authority (HEA) approves these adjusted technical parameters by issuing a modified operational license for FGSZ, the mentioned increased capacity will be offered in the form of short-term products even earlier than July.
