Our gas storage facilities are important to Danish and Swedish security of gas supply and help ensuring that private homeowners, businesses and power stations always have access to the necessary gas for heating, electricity generation and production.
Even though our gas storage facilities have been designed to meet the domestic demand for flexibility services, we consider the entire Northwest Europe as our export market today.
This is so for 2 reasons:
improved interconnections to other market areas - especially to Germany and the Netherlands
reduced gas consumption on the domestic markets - our storage capacity surpasses the domestic demand
Therefore, we sell our storage capacity to registered storage customers based in Denmark or abroad.
