Danish Utility Regulator postpones self-evaluation of Danish-Swedish wholesale gas market

Danish Utility Regulator (DUR) and the Swedish regulatory authority Energimarknadsinspektionen (Ei) postpones a joint self-evaluation of the Danish-Swedish wholesale gas market.

In 2020, DUR and Ei decided that a self-evaluation should be postponed to 2023, because the Danish-Swedish gas market were undergoing substantial changes due to shutdown of the Tyra-platform and construction of Baltic Pipe.

Because uncertainty is still present regarding the recommencement of production from the Tyra-platform and uncertainty related to accessibility of robust and sufficient data, DUR and Ei has decided to postpone the self-evaluation further.

In the beginning of 2024, the two authorities will discuss the time of evaluation and accessibility of sufficient data.

Facts

DUR and Ei are endorsed to evaluate the Danish-Swedish gas market every third year based on recommendations by the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) in its European vision paper for the European gas market – The Gas Target Model (GTM). The evaluation is based on a model and metrics for well-functioning gas markets, security of supply, and the future role for natural gas.

In 2017, DUR and Ei published the first self-evaluation. The planned self-evaluation in 2020 originally was postponed to 2023 and has now been further postponed due to lack of sufficient data.
