2. Interruptible transmission service tariffs:

Interruptible transmission service tariffs: one-component tariffs for the Entry Points, three-component tariffs for Domestic Exit Point(s) and two-component tariffs for other Exit Points:

  • Tariff for capacity booked (the first element of the fixed component of tariff): price for interruptible capacity for the specific entry and exit point is equal to the tariff of firm capacity product, however, network users are compensated after the actual interruptions occurred. The ex-post compensation paid for each day on which an interruption occurred (after the purchasing of firm capacity products at given Entry or (and) Exit point), is equal to the tariff of daily firm capacity product at that point, multiplied by 3;
  • Tariff for consumption capacity (the second element of the fixed component of tariff): corresponds to the tariff for consumption capacity of firm transmission service;
  • Tariff for transmitted quantity (variable component of tariff): corresponds to the tariff for transmitted quantity of firm transmission service.
