Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Gasopslag Nederland?

    Gasopslag Nederland is an association that represents the interests of gas storage operators in the Netherlands. Our aim is to put forward all our members’ opinions about gas storage in discussions about Dutch and European gas legislation.

  • Why has Gasopslag Nederland been set up?

    Sufficient gas storage capacity is extremely important in order to continue to guarantee a properly functioning gas market. Over the next few years, gas storage in the Netherlands will play a much more important part. At the same time, regulations governing gas infrastructure and gas storage are still in the process of evolving. Gasopslag Nederland allows gas storage facility developers and operators to speak with one voice and achieve a favourable climate for new and existing gas storage facilities. Together with our members, we want to ensure that anticipated regulations, licensing procedures and a level playing field in the Netherlands and Europe are placed high on the agenda by European and Dutch governments and regulatory bodies.

  • How does Gasopslag Nederland want to achieve its aim?

    Gasopslag Nederland wants to achieve its aim by acting in the interests of its members. We enter into negotiations with European and Dutch governments, regulatory bodies and other interested parties involved in the Dutch gas infrastructure. We also act on behalf of our members by supplying information, advising on statutory measures, conducting legal proceedings and drawing attention to issues and problems confronting members.

    Gasopslag Nederland currently represents gas storage operators Eneco Gasspeicher, EnergyStock, Gas Storage Bergermeer, EKB (Etzel-Kavernenbetriebsgesellschaft), innogy gas storage NWE and Gas Storage OMV Etzel. The first three members mentioned above are the founders of Gasopslag Nederland.

  • What is Gasopslag Nederland’s aim?

    Gasopslag Nederland allows gas storage facility developers and operators to speak with one voice. In this way we can achieve a favourable climate for new and existing gas storage facilities. We want to emphasise the importance of gas storage for a reliable and sustainable energy supply. We are seeking to achieve this by holding discussions with the relevant authorities, such as the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM), the European Commission and ACER (Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators).

    Membership of Gasopslag Nederland is open to all gas storage operators and developers who have a connection agreement with the operator of the national gas transmission network (Gasunie Transport Services, GTS). They must be involved in the storage of gaseous natural gas and not CO2 or LNG.
