Invitation to tender for fuel gas

OPAL Gastransport GmbH & Co. KG requires natural gas for operating its gas transportation system (OPAL including Radeland compressor station and Greifswald gas transfer station), which will be supplied at stations Radeland and Greifswald.  

Non-binding estimate for these stations is a requirement of approximately 675,000 MWh for Radeland and approximately 375,000 MWh for Greifswald. Gas traders are requested to take part in an invitation to tender for the sale and supply of fuel gas, whereat both  quantities are together for tender. 

OPAL Gastransport GmbH & Co. KG is requesting tenders for the sale and supply of fuel gas in the period 1 January 2019 to 1 October 2019 for full supply in the GASPOOL market area. Consumption points as RLM exit points are introduced into the supplier’s balancing group for this purpose. In addition to the gas supply, the supplier therefore also accepts the balancing group risk and all connected costs. 

The offer to sell and supply fuel gas will be based on a master agreement for both consumption points and an individual agreement as an annex to the master agreement which the OPAL Gastransport GmbH & Co. KG concludes with the gas trader who wins the contract. The individual agreement as an annex to the master contract in particular regulates the pricing of the fuel gas quantities to be procured.

Sellers wishing to offer fuel gas must first take part in a prequalification process to be able to present their terms of sale and delivery in the subsequent invitation to tender and bidding phase.
