Injection and withdrawal restrictions for 2018/2019
Last updated on 22. December 2017
Gas Storage Denmark is pleased to announce that the restriction limits for injection and withdrawal in the next SY2018-19 will be maintained almost as known in the current SY2017-18

The assessment of our planning team has resulted in (1) unchanged injection restrictions and  (2) tightening of the withdrawal restrictions due to the downgrade of our firm storage capacity announced earlier this year. However, by offering a part of the withdrawal capacity as monthly products only, the deterioration in the withdrawal curve can be avoided above 10% filling.
Therefore Gas Storage Denmark is pleased to announce that the restriction limits for injection and withdrawal in the next SY2018-19 will be maintained almost as known in the current SY2017-18.

 

·         Injection restrictions
 
75% of the injection capacity is available when the gas storage facility is filled up 95% or more. All injection capacity is available when the storage filling is below 95%.
