We are responsible for the physical balance of the Finnish gas system and for organising both balancing and balance settlement.
To achieve physical balance in the gas system, we acquire gas energy via a gas exchange as well as from shippers with whom we have entered into a balancing service agreement. Balancing service agreements are subjected to competitive bidding. There may be one or more accepted bids but, however, gas is always bought first under the cheapest agreement and sold first under the most expensive agreement. For more information about balancing, see section 9 of the Gas Transmission Rules and the Terms and Conditions of Balancing confirmed by the Energy Authority.
