The CNMC sets by Resolution the tolls applicable to transmission networks, local networks and regasification following the methodology defined in Circular 6/2020.
Transmission tolls apply to all entry and exit points of the trunk network. They consist of a fixed capacity component specific to each point and flow direction and a variable component depending on the energy transported.
Interruptible tolls are only established for the VIP PIRINEOS point in the incoming direction. For departures from this point and for VIP IBÉRICO in both flow directions, the contracting of interruptible capacity is subject to the same tolls as firm capacity, with ex-post compensation being considered in the event of interruptibility execution.
Local network tolls apply to all exit points of national demand, both for points connected to the transmission network and to the distribution network. Local network tolls differentiate between 11 toll groups based on annual consumption, and consist of three components: a fixed component for contracted capacity, a variable component for volume and a component called demanded capacity, which takes into account the maximum capacity demanded, the contracted capacity at the supply point and the duration of the contracted services. The first two components are specific to each of the toll groups.
The CNMC has temporarily established a distinction in local network tolls based on supply pressure for some of the groups. The reference value for the pressure distinction is 4 bar and covers groups with consumption between 300 MWh/year and 15 GWh/year. Furthermore, the CNMC makes an additional distinction in local network tolls for outgoing points supplied by satellite plant.
In addition to the aforementioned tolls, a new toll associated with the recovery of other regasification costs has been defined and will be invoiced by the operators of the infrastructure from which gas is supplied to the end consumer. This toll consists of:
In all tolls applicable to national exit points, including transmission and local networks and tolls for the recovery of other regasification costs, specific tolls are established for supply points that are not obliged to have remote metering, in which case the fixed component is not based on capacity, but is an annual fixed component per customer.
Tolls for access to regasification facilities are common for all plants and specific for each of the services provided. The structure of plant access tolls is adapted to the nature of each of the services offered and generally consists of a fixed component for contracted capacity and a variable component for volume.
The fees for use of basic underground storage facilities are defined by Ministerial Order following the methodology established in Royal Decree 1184/2020.
The charges distinguish between storage, injection and extraction, and consist only of a fixed capacity component applicable to products with an annual duration.
For all services contracted for products of a different duration, the fixed component of the toll or charge is calculated by applying multipliers to the fixed capacity component of the product of the relevant annual duration.
Users who have contracted interruptible daily injection/extraction capacity will receive monthly compensation for the interruptions carried out during the month.
The multipliers have already been applied to the fixed capacity component shown for products with a duration of less than one year in the tables below.
