Gas Market

Learn more about the Danish gas market model and the opportunities available to shippers, gas suppliers, bio-natural gas sellers and gas storage customers.

Business Model

Entry-Exit Model 

Energinet’s business model for the Danish gas transmission system is based on a simple entry-exit model which allows market players to commercially move gas in and out of Denmark.

Flexibility

Energinet’s single exit zone – joint balancing zone – delivers gas to all Danish and Swedish consumers. This supports a high level of flexibility in the Danish and Swedish gas market, because a single customer may be supplied with gas from several entry points. 

Danis gas market model

ENTRY points

The Danish business model provides the following entry points: 

1) Three entry points at Nybro, Ellund and the Joint balancing zone, where the natural gas enters Denmark and Sweden.

2) One entry point (RES Entry) for renewable energy sources. At the moment only biomethane, aka bio natural gas enters the gas system. This allows shippers to virtually upload biomethane to the transmission system

EXIT points

The Danish business model provides the following exit points:  

1) Joint balancing zone, which makes it possible for gas suppliers to deliver gas to all Danish and Swedish consumers through the gas distribution network and to to three large power stations in Denmark (Avedøre ІІ, H. C Ørsted and Skærbæk) which are directly connected to the transmission system.  

2) Three transit exit points at Nybro, Ellund and the Joint balancing zone for export of natural gas.

Storage

Energinet's business model includes one common storage point which covers the gas storage facilities at Stenlille and Lille Torup. Storage customers use this point to feed gas into the gas storage facility or withdraw gas from it. 

Virtual Transfer Points

The Danish gas market model offers shippers two ways to buy and sell gas:

1) through our virtual point ETF (Exchange Transfer Facility) for trades executed on the Danish gas exchange, Pegas.

2) through GTF (Gas Transfer Facility), our virtual point for bilateral trades in the secondary market.
