GIE launches Security Risk Assessment Methodology for Gas Infrastructure
Press Release 29 July 2014 - Ref. 14GIE097
The gas infrastructure is a network without national boundaries, which means that a failure of one portion of the network could propagate to other areas, potentially involving several countries. Thus the European Commission has identified the gas Infrastructure as a critical infrastructure.
GIE fully acknowledges the strategic importance of the gas infrastructure system for Europe. GIE takes into account the necessity to create standards to ensure a level playing field. Security risk identification helps to provide value across the energy infrastructure.
The GIE Security Risk Assessment Methodology is a common and integrated approach amongst the European energy infrastructure operators. With this methodology a next major and important step to further increase security and resilience of the gas infrastructure network in Europe has been achieved. It is another example for the active participation and contribution of gas infrastructure operators to EPCIP, the European Program for Critical Infrastructure Protection.

GIE Answer to ACER consultation “Gas Target Model review and update”
In parallel to the revision of the Gas Target Model, ACER is working on the ‘Bridge to 2025’ concerning the general energy market as well as thematic papers on consumers, electricity and gas. GIE responded to the informal consultation conducted by ACER on the ‘Bridge to 2025’ on 19 December 2013.1 The questions on which ACER now seeks input reflect to a large extent the questions which were already addressed in the GIE response in December. In the meantime GIE remains of the same opinion, therefore the responses given in December have been incorporated in this paper.
GIE would like to recall the conclusions of the CEER Vision for a European Gas Target Model which stated that: “the model should be evaluated and if necessary further developed after the implementation of the network codes on capacity allocation mechanisms, gas balancing, harmonised transmission tariffs and gas interoperability in 2013 as well as in the light of the work on incremental capacities in 2012 and their practical implementation […]”.2
GIE agrees with the above-mentioned conclusions, and wishes to underline the successful joint efforts which are being taken by stakeholders to ensure the (early) implementation of the above-mentioned framework. Apart from the CMP guidelines, partially implemented in October 2013, work on the implementation of Network Codes (CAM, Balancing) has just started or will commence soon. A review of the Gas Target Model before the adoption and full implementation of the Network Codes seems therefore premature. The focus should be on implementing the agreed rules, with significant progress expected to be achieved in a short term period. The need for additional measures should be considered after two to three years based on the experiences with the new market rules.
In addition to the above comments, GIE would like to provide additional information on these issues.

On 5 March, the GasNaturally Stakeholders Roundtable took place at the European Parliament. The title of this roundtable was: "How Gas technologies and infrastructure are providing solutions to our EU energy and climate challenges". This evrent was hosted by Maria Da Graça Carvalho MEP and António Fernando Correla De Campos MEP.
Several interventions from different speakers took place during this roundtable. GIE was on this occasion represented by Energinet.Dk.

|GIE position paper regarding the revision and future of the European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP)|
Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE) represents European transmission system operators, storage operators and LNG operators across Europe. As such it is in a unique position to make a positive contribution to Europe’s energy needs, and the ongoing security and well being of Europe’s citizens. Gas infrastructure transports twice as much energy as the electricity sector, and its strategic importance to Europe is recognized in the 2009 European Program on Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) Directive. The European Commission is currently in the process of preparing a revision of the EPCIP directive, and this paper marks the start of GIE’s positive engagement, and contribution to the successful completion of the recasting process.

The European Commission launched in December 2011 a public consultation on Renewable Energy Strategy. This public consultation had the aim of soliciting the view of interested parties to assess in how far the orientations of the current policy framework on renewable energy remain valid in the medium term - i.e. after 2020 until 2030. Given the strong interactions between renewables and gas, GIE decided to prepare a response to remind about the “enabler” role of natural gas for variable RES as well as the key role that natural gas should play in a low carbon economy.
