Maintenance plan for Gas Storage Denmark in the storage year 2016/17
The maintenance plan for the storage year from 1 May 2016 to 30 April 2017 implies the following restriction to access the storage capaciy:
The Lille Torup Gas Storage facility will be closed completly for maintenance in the period from 1 October 2016 at 06.00 to 9 October 2016 at 06.00. The shutdown implies that the customers will be affected by injection and withdrawal restrictions during the maintenance. In this period, the firm injection capacity for the entire storage will be lowered to 60 % of the customers´ firm capacity, and the firm withdrawal capacity for the entire storage will be lowered to 75 % of the customers´ firm capacity.
In general Gas Storage Denmark plans the maintenance in such a manner that 1 compressor is taken out during the withdrawal season (because it only affects the injection capacity) and 1 withdrawal train is taken out during the injection season (because it only affects the withdrawal capacity). In addition to this a shut down period is planned from late September to early October, when the potential impact on the storage utilization is least.
In this way the storage customers are only affected to a minor degree by the planned maintenance of the storage facility.
In addition to this Gas Storage Denmark has introduced a compensation scheme, which came into effect 1 May 2012. The compensation scheme compensates our storage customers when Gas Storage Denmark is not able to deliver the nominated capacity of the customers firm capacity in relation to maintenance.
