Payment schedule

The budget limit fee must be paid per storage year in advance and in one instalment.

Upon the conclusion of the “Express Service Bundle” contract, MFGT issues a periodic settlement invoice for the period until the end of the storage period between 1 April 2019 - 31 March 2020. The entry into force of the contract is subject to the condition that the invoiced amount is paid in full.

In the event that an “Express Service Bundle” contract for 1+1 storage years is concluded, the payment deadline of the periodic settlement invoice issued with regard to the +1 year (the period between 1 April 2020 - 31 March 2021) shall be 1 April 2020.

Throughout the duration of the contract, MFGT issues accounting documents on the actual monthly service use, thus specifying the already spent and the still available budget limit.

In case of using Daily Peak Plus, Storage Plus and Intra Gas Day Storage Flexibility services, the consideration for such services shall be deducted from the System User’s Budget Limit until it is spent in full.

 

“Take or pay” (TOP) Obligation

In relation to the budget limit of the “Express Service” bundle, System User has a 50% “Take or Pay” (TOP) obligation on the last day of the storage year. By the end of the storage year, any amount remaining from the Budget Limit shall be settled as “Take or Pay” (TOP) obligation, therefore the unspent part of the 50% cannot be shifted to the subsequent storage year, and will not be refunded by MFGT.

Maximum 50% of the fee paid as budget limit, that is the relating Budget Limit can be transferred (shifted) to the subsequent storage year, and spent on using the services then required at the then applicable prices (e.g.: set off against monthly capacity fees).

The amount remaining from the Budget Limit shift shall be settled as a “Take or Pay” (TOP) obligation at the end of the second (in case of contracting for 1 storage year) / third (in case of contracting for 1+1 storage years) storage year, which cannot be shifted to further storage years and will not be refunded by MFGT.
