(Ref 2017GIE011) The EU Commission has launched a study under the title "Quo Vadis EU gas market regulatory framework – Study on a Gas Market Design for Europe". The aim of the study is to provide a substantiated analysis as to whether the current regulatory framework in the EU gas sector is the most effective in order to maximize overall EU welfare.
GIE is fully supporting the notion that the gas market should contribute to maximizing the overall EU welfare and help achieve EU energy and climate targets. It is with that in mind that infrastructure operators have played an active role in developing the current gas market. This is a gas market that according to ACER has continued to progress and where market dynamics seem to work better and better, to the benefit of the users of the gas system.
GIE is committed to be an integrated part of this development and aims to ensure that the existing gas infrastructure continues to provide benefits to the European consumers in the transition towards a more sustainable energy system. GIE will continue its commitment to contribute to the dialogue on creating the most efficient gas market.

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.
