NetConnect Germany to tender contracts for the supply of extraterritorial networks via the Netherlands


Ratingen (Germany), 11 July 2019. NetConnect Germany GmbH & Co. KG (NCG) is again conducting – as already informed in May 2019 – a tender process for gas deliveries from November 2019/January 2020.

Tenders are invited for the provision of gas quantities via the Netherlands at the cross-border interconnection point Tegelen located on the German-Dutch border, with delivery to be made in the period from November 2019 up to and including March 2020 (with a monthly termination option), as well as at the German-Dutch cross-border interconnection points Dinxperlo and Haanrade, with delivery here to be made from January 2020 up to and including December 2020 (with a monthly termination option as well).

NCG is carrying out this tender process to secure the possibility of supplier switching at end user level whilst continuing to meet market liberalisation requirements. In choosing this approach, NCG ensures that the network areas downstream from the cross-border interconnection points Tegelen, Dinxperlo and Haanrade can be integrated into the NCG market area despite their having no physical connection to the German gas network, and thus enables suppliers to supply customers located in these network areas via the NCG market area. Gas deliveries to end users in these network areas are not part of the scope of the tender.

Interested bidders may submit indicative bids to NCG between 12 July 2019 and 26 July 2019, 12 noon. For tender details, please visit the NCG website.
