Towards full compliance with the CAM Network Code

The entire set of additional products will be offered according to the CAM Network Code. For the yearly products the TSOs will upload the maximum available capacity taking into account the applicable national quota for short-term bookings. The simultaneously available capacity at both sides of the border will be bundled on PRISMA, possibly making use of competing auctions.

Where and when relevant, the German, Dutch and French TSOs will auction the remaining part as unbundled standard products, while Fluxys Belgium will continue to offer and allocate its unbundled capacity as requested through its Electronic Booking System.

PRISMA European Capacity Platform GmbH

PRISMA was founded by major European TSOs from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands with the aim to create a joint European capacity platform.

The European PRISMA Platform, which was launched in April 2013, is the first platform to have implemented the Network Code on Capacity Allocation Mechanisms, the future European market rules for allocating natural gas transport capacity, which will come into force in November 2015.

There are currently 28 European TSOs from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain connected to the platform and market transport capacity via PRISMA. 22 TSOs are shareholders of PRISMA.

With its harmonised capacity products and auction mechanisms and its ability to serve a high number of TSO backend systems in accordance with the CAM Network Code, PRISMA is a major step towards an integrated European gas market.
