The term “commercial conversion” refers to a situation where external balancing actions are taken in opposite directions within any given period, i.e. balancing gas is bought as well as sold, in order to counterbalance the physical impact of the net quantities that are virtually converted across all balancing groups.
In accordance with the ruling issued by the German federal regulator Bundesnetzagentur on 21 December 2016 (ref BK7-16-050), the market area manager NetConnect Germany publishes information about the quantities and prices relating to the commercial measures it takes to physically convert gas of one gas quality to another.
The publication of the preliminary data is made on a daily basis, the publication of the final data is made after the availability of all final data. Please note that the publication of the preliminary and final data is performed in two separate tabular displays.
