Public Consultation

on the Oil & Gas UK proposal

to amend the Gas Network Codes CAM and BAL in order to retain the UK Gas Day


From 19 January 2015 to 9 February 2015 the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) is running a public consultation on the UK Gas upstream industry proposal to retain the UK gas day for the UK and the Republic of Ireland through an amendment of the Network Codes on Capacity Allocation Mechanisms (NC CAM) and Balancing (NC BAL). 
In accordance with Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 715/2009 and Article 10 of Regulation (EC) No 713/2009 the Agency presents for public consultation the following documents:
  • 1st ACER letter & questionnaire to Oil & Gas UK requesting further information (ACER, 3.10.2014)
    2 - ACER letter​



The Agency invites all interested parties to reply to the following consultation questions:
    1. Respondent’s name & contact details, name & type of organisation or stakeholder
    2. Please provide a short description of your interest, motivation & role in this amendment proposal.
    3. Do you support, oppose, or have a neutral position towards the proposed amendment being further considered by ACER? Please specify the main reasons why you think ACER should or should not pursue this amendment request.
Please send your comments and replies to by 9 February 2015, 12.00 noon, Central European Time. The stakeholder responses will be published on the Agency’s website. If you share commercially sensitive information, please also provide a non-confidential version for publication purposes.

Background information

On 24 July 2014, the Agency received the joint submission of Oil & Gas UK and the Gas Forum for an amendment proposal to the NC CAM and NC BAL. The proposed amendment would allow the UK and the Republic of Ireland to derogate from the obligation of adopting the common times of the Gas Day as defined by Article 3(7) of the NC CAM.
This amendment request has to be dealt with in accordance with Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 715/2009, which specifies that amendments proposed to the Agency by persons who are likely to have an interest in that network code shall be consulted by the Agency with all stakeholders in accordance with Article 10 of Regulation (EC) No 713/2009.
As the original submission was considered incomplete, partly unclear and not sufficiently substantiated, the Agency requested further clarification and supporting data on 3 October and 23 December 2014.
In order to evaluate whether the amendment request merits further consideration the Agency has to collect and assess EU stakeholders’ views. After doing so, it may make reasoned proposals for amendments to the Commission or stop the process.
