THE REGION AT A GLANCE

The South South-East (SSE) REM is co-chaired by E-Control (Austria)) and AEEG (Italy) and apart from these countries the Czech republic, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia also participate in this gas region.

The SSE REM represented 42 bcm in 2005, about a quarter of the EU total, with an average per capita consumption of 990 m3/year; slightly below the European average. This region contributes significantly to the security of energy supply in the UE since nearly half of the European transit capacities are transported through the countries of the South-South East Region.

Monitoring the proper implementation of the European gas regulation, the survey and analysis of the regional market and its problems, as well as transparency and interoperability issues are the main priorities in the SEE REM.

 

PRIORITIES IN THE REGION

1. Monitoring of regulatory implementation in the countries, with particular reference to:
  • Implementation of Directive 2003/55, shortcomings and infringement procedures
  • Steps undertaken to ensure compliance with the Regulation 1775/2205
  • Scope and guidelines of Regulatory Authority powers and actions

2. Survey and analysis of the regional market and its problems, particularly:
  • Current development of hubs and other trading activities in the region
  • Development of the main physical and commercial gas flows
  • Current and expected infrastructure development and its regulatory framework
  • Practical case studies of gas transportation through the region for specific profiles by a fictive shipper:
    • RUS-SK-CZ-GER (Velke Kapusany - Waidhaus or Hora Svate Kateriny)
    • RUS-SK-A-SI-I (Velke Kapusany - Goricia)
    • RUS-SK-A-I (Velke Kapusany - Tarvisio)
    • RUS-SK-A-GER (Velke Kapusany - Oberkappel)
    • RUS-PL-GER-CZ (Bobrowniki or Kondratki * Mallnow - Hora Svate Kateriny)

3. Transparency requirements covering:
  • Access to Storage
  • Services Hub Service

4. Interoperability issues:
  • Gas quality issues
  • Infrastructure interconnection agreements
  • Operational balancing
