Gas transmission system operators (TSOs) of Baltic States, Elering AS, AS Conexus Baltic Grid and AB Amber Grid are seeking for measures for closer integration of the national gas markets of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, which would foster the cross-border trade and development of a competitive regional market. With this in mind, the TSOs are implementing implicit capacity allocation method for short-term cross-border capacity and trading.
