Gas Future Operability Planning (GFOP)
The gas landscape has changed considerably in the past 15 years. We expect this to continue in the short, medium and long-term.
The GFOP describes how this ever-evolving landscape may impact gas network operability, with the aim of setting the direction for solutions that benefit all market participants.
Delivering within-day customer needs now and into the future
How customers bring gas on and off the transmission system has changed. Through this study, we want to:
better understand what influences within-day behaviour and how this could change in the future
test our physical network's capability to continue to meet future within-day needs
(14th Feb 19) Summary of factors that influence within-day behaviour
(28th Feb 19) Predict how within-day gas flows could change by 2025
(7th Mar 19) “What if” scenario impact study of within-day behaviour in 2025
(28th Mar 19) Wider study considering the timing of a flow change
June 2018 - Future gas supply patterns
This, our third document across 2017 and 2018, describes how variability in supply pattern seasonally and day-to-day has changed, and could change in the future.
Your input through these documents will help us to outline the future needs of the network and determine a set of potential options that meet these needs.
March 2018 - Future gas-fired generation demand
In our November document, we introduced four drivers of change that could create future operability challenges over the next 30 years. This document takes a deeper look into one of these drivers: increasing gas-electricity interactions.
Based on our findings, we have identified uncertainties that need further study to better understand the operability risk they pose. We want you to challenge our assumptions, telling us how you think gas-fired generation will change in the future.
