UNC728/A/B/C/D Introduction of a Conditional Discount for Avoiding Inefficient Bypass of the NTS: Urgency Application

On 9 June 2020, the Joint Office of Gas Transporters received a request from National Grid Gas Tranmission that Uniform Network Code modification UNC728 ‘Increasing the Storage Transmission Capacity Charge Discount to 80%’ should be treated as ‘urgent’ and proceed under a timetable approved by Ofgem. Four alternative proposals (UNC728A/B/C/D) were submitted to the JO on the same day. We have decided to grant urgent status for UNC728/A/B/C/D.
