Dear natural gas market participants,
Baltic and Finnish national regulatory authorities (hereinafter – NRAs) and Baringa Partners LLP would like to invite you to the public workshop on the results of the project of a pricing model for the natural gas entry-exit system for the common Baltic-Finnish market.
The NRAs of Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania agreed to determine the best methodology for calculating natural gas transmission service tariffs that would be apply across the common Baltic - Finnish entry-exit system. To this end, the NRAs appointed Baringa Partners LLP to undertake a study of the range of options available under the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/460 of 16 March 2017 establishing a network code on harmonised transmission tariff structures for gas and to assist the NRAs in coming to a decision, supported by clear evidence-based economic analysis. So Baringa Partners LLP carried out study where three alternative tariff methodologies - Postage Stamp, Capacity-Weighted Distance, and Matrix, were analysed, and based on tariff methodology selected by the NRAs constructed a tariff methodology for the common Baltic - Finnish entry-exit system.
The public workshop will take place on 12 September 2018, starting at 9:00 and finishing at 12:30. It will be held at Seminar room, Public Utility Commission, 45, Unijas Street, Riga, Latvia.
