This year Energinet announces a call for two tenders inviting storage customers in the Danish gas market to bid for supply of individual filling requirements.

The reason for two tenders this time is that the normal tender to supply individual filling requirements will be split in two.

Deadlines for bid submission will be:

  • First tender: 22 June 2021 at 12.00 (CEST)
  • Second tender: 15 September 2021 at 12.00 (CEST)

Energinet, in its capacity as gas transmission system operator for natural gas in Denmark, wishes to ensure storage filling for the coming winter 2021/2022 in the form of individual filling requirements. Individual filling requirements give Energinet back-up of natural gas in the event of an emergency situation in the Danish gas market.

If this has your interest, please make a bid referring to the Individual Filling Requirements Agreement and the requirements stated below.



This call for the two tenders relates to the supply of individual filling requirements up to a total of 2,100 GWh.

The first tender relates to the supply of the filling requirements of up to 1,200 GWh.

The second tender relates to the supply of the residual between the total amount and the amount bought at the first tender.  



The delivery point for natural gas stored by the seller under the terms of individual filling requirements is the storage facilities.

The delivery period runs from 16 October 2021 to 5 April 2022. The delivery period consists of three sub-periods:

  1. an increment period, 16 October to 31 December 2021,
  2. a plateau period, 1 January to 22 February 2022,
  3. and a reduction period, 23 February to 5 April 2022.

For the incremental period, the individual filling requirements increase linearly from 0 to the maximum level.

During the plateau period the individual filling requirements are constant at maximum level

During the reduction period, the individual filling requirements decrease linearly to 0.

The minimum level of individual filling requirements in percentage of the contractual quantity for each gas day in the delivery period is listed in Appendix A.
