Gas Storage Denmark

Injection and withdrawal restrictions

Your storage contract is subject to injection and withdrawal restrictions. The restrictions are set in accordance with the Rules for Gas Storage (RGS) applicable from time to time.

SY 2023 - 2024

The Injection and Withdrawal Restrictions as a function of the global filling level in the storage year 2023-2024 have not been finilized yet.

Until further notice, the curves can be considered as being the same as in storage year 2022-2023.

Injection restrictions

  • 75% of the injection capacity is available when the gas storage facility is filled up to 95% or more
  • All injection capacity is available when the storage filling is below 95%

 

The injection restrictions for storage year 2022-2023 are illustrated in the figure below.

Injection restrictions 2022-2023

Withdrawal restrictions

  • 85% of the withdrawal capacity is available when the storage filling is at or below 20%, 
  • 75% of the withdrawal capacity is available when the storage filling is at or below 15%,
  • 50% of the withdrawal capacity is available when the storage filling is at or below 12.5%,
  • 33% of the withdrawal capacity is available when the storage filling is at or below 10%,
  • 25% of the withdrawal capacity is available when the storage filling is at or below 5%.

Withdrawal restrictions 2022-2023

 

SY 2022 - 2023 1st update

Injection restrictions - updated due to increasing of the marketable storage capacity from 9231 GWh to 9573 GWh by incremental injection during November 2022, cf. Daily Auctioning November 2022.

Prior to the Daily Auctioning in November 2022, the marketed volume capacity has been just below the injection restriction level associated with filling level 9231 GWh. Therefore, GSD has announced that there will be no Injection Restrictions in storage year 2022-2023. However, with the additional injection of Natural Gas released in the daily auctions in November 2022, the Injection Restrictions will be activated when the filling level reaches 9573 GWh. The activation of the Injection Restrictions will be announced by GSD in due time.  

INJECTION RESTRICTIONS

  • 75% of the injection capacity is available when the gas storage facility is filled up to 95% or more
  • All injection capacity is available when the storage filling is below 95%
