FZK – freely allocable capacities

These capacities allow firm and interruptible gas transmission across the whole market area and provide access to the Virtual Trading Point of THE.

bFZK – conditionally firm freely allocable capacities

bFZK are conditionally firm capacities that can be freely allocated in the entire market area and enable access to the virtual trading point of THE. At storage connection points, bFZK only become interruptible capacities in whole or in part if the daily average temperature forecast exceeds or falls below a limit value set by OGE.

At virtual interconnection points, the bFZK can be interrupted if the previous day's forecast for the daily average temperature measured at the Essen weather station is above or below the limit values ​​set by OGE. The aforementioned limit values ​​can be found in the product data sheet.

DZK – dynamically allocable capacity

DZK at points requiring nomination enables network use on a firm basis. This applies if the point combinations published in the following document " Capacity allocation restrictions and point-to-point connections for dynamically allocable capacities" are used and included in the balancing groups as described in the product data sheet.

DZK at exit points that are do not require nomination enables network use on a firm basis from a previously defined entry point that requires nomination. You can find the possible point combinations in the product data sheet. Unless an allocation limitation is published by OGE, it is possible to supply the exit point that does not require nomination via the VTP.
