Capacity Allocation Mechanisms NC

The CAM NC  is the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/459 of 16 March 2017 establishing a network code on capacity allocation mechanisms in gas transmission systems and repealing Regulation (EU) No 984/2013.  The CAM NC applies to interconnection points (‘IP’) and may apply to entry and exit points from/to third countries. 

The first version of the CAM NC of 2013 had been in place until the amended CAM NC came into force on April 2017and repealed it.

In addition to the rules on allocating existing capacity from the first version of the CAM NC, the amended CAM NC includes rules for determining and marketing incremental capacity. It also contains provisions for a capacity conversion service of unbundled capacity products as well as for harmonising the main terms and conditions for bundled capacity products. New requirements for offering interruptible capacity and new auction dates and rules for long-term capacity products are also introduced.

Incremental capacity

Incremental capacity is defined as capacity above technical capacity at an existing IP, the capacity linked to the creation of a new IP, or physical reverse capacity at an existing IP where previously gas could only flow in one direction. 

The amended CAM NC sets the EU-wide market-based approach to identify the need for incremental capacity and to allocate both existing and incremental capacity in an integrated way.
