On 1 July 2018, the standardized terms and conditions for domestic gas transmission service at Elering AS (approved by Competition Authority decision no. 7-10/2018-0013 of 13 April 2018) and the standardized terms and conditions for cross-border gas transmission service at Elering AS (approved by Competition Authority decision no. 7-10/2018-015 of 17 May 2018) entered into force.

The new standardized domestic gas transmission service conditions replace the former document, the standardized conditions for provision of natural gas network service, and create greater legal clarity for provision of domestic gas transmission service. The standardized terms and conditions have been updated throughout, but the biggest change is that the new conditions make it possible for gas producers to be network contract clients. The standardized conditions also set out more precise regulations in the event of interruptions of network service taking place in the transmission network.

The new standardized cross-border gas transmission service conditions replace the former document, the methodology for allocating gas transmission capacity and managing congestion, and likewise bring greater legal clarity to provision of cross-border gas transmission service. The standardized conditions have been updated throughout, but the biggest change is that they give Elering AS the right to charge the underutilization if a market participant regularly uses more than 10% less capacity than was reserved in total in all timeframes. The standardized conditions also provide for allocation of implicit capacity at the Karksi point also in the case of within-day capacity.
