The total max daily requirement [has been estimated] at 8 667 000 kWh. There may be more than one Balancing Gas Contract awarded in order to meet the total requirement, with each Balancing Gas Buy Contract having a minimum quantity requirement of 1 000 000 kWh.

Description of options:

While it is envisaged that the Lot 1 Framework Agreement and Balancing Gas Buy Contracts will terminate automatically at 5:00 on 1.10.2018, PTL shall have the option to extend the term of the Lot 1 Framework Agreement (and Balancing Gas Buy Contracts) to5:00 on 1.10.2019, by serving notice on each Framework Member at any time prior to 1.10.2018, if PTL's tender process for the award of a framework agreement for the purchase of Balancing Gas for the NI Network for the gas year 1.102018 to 1.10.2019 is unsuccessful and it is unable to appoint any successful bidders.

PTL intends to award places on the Framework Agreements until the relevant quantity requirement (for buy or sell of gas, of 8 667 000 kWh in each case) has been met. In addition PTL may, for the purposes of operational resilience, choose to offer further places on the Framework Agreements. Since each Tenderer must offer a minimum quantity of 1 000 000 kWh in their tenders it is on this basis that the potential maximum number of participants to the framework agreement has been envisaged as 10, however PTL reserves the right to place additional participants on the Framework Agreements if it considers that appropriate.
