2. Interruptible transmission service tariffs:

Interruptible transmission service tariffs: one-component tariffs for the Entry Points, three-component tariffs for Domestic Exit Point 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.

For this point (in addition to the tariffs above) the tariffs for restricted capacity products are also applied (for more detailed information on restricted capacity products and their tariffs see below).

Natural Gas Transmission Tariffs, effective from 1 January 2020, approved by the National Energy Regulatory Council (hereinafter referred to as the "Council") by its decision as of 10 October 2019, can be downloaded from here:

Supply Security Charge: an extra charge related to natural gas supply security and added to the natural gas transmission tariff:

In order to collect funds to cover all installation and fixed operating (which are not included in other state-regulated prices) costs of the Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal (hereinafter referred to as the "LNGT") (including the infrastructure and interconnector thereof) and to cover reasonable costs of the minimum gas quantity required to ensure necessary technological operations of the LNGT, the Law of the Republic of Lithuania on the Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal (Art. 5(2)) provides for the application of the so called "Supply Security Charge", which is related to the security of supply of natural gas and is added to the natural gas transmission tariff. The size of the Supply Security Charge is set on an annual basis by the Council. During the year, but not more often than twice a year, Supply Security Charge may be adjusted by the Council‘s decision.

As regards the Supply Security Charge for 2020, the Council has so far taken a conditional decision. The final Supply Security Charge for 2020 will be published at a later date, when the Council adopts its final decision.

Restricted capacity products

Amber Grid informs that at entry point from Belarusian natural gas transmission system restricted capacity products with restrictions of access to transmission services, i.e. capacity products granting the right to transport gas to a specific transmission system exit point – exit point to the transmission system of Kaliningrad region of the Russian Federation (without possibility of delivering natural gas to the other points and (or) selling it at a virtual natural gas trading point), are also offered from 1st of January 2020.
