NATURAL GAS

 


NETWORK

Set of local, national and international interconnected gas pipelines used for the transport and distribution of natural gas. Low-pressure (maximum pressure of 5 bar) and high-pressure (from 16 to over 100 bar) networks are also used.


NETWORK CAPACITY

Capacity of a network to transport a given volume of natural gas per hour, from the injection point to the delivery point. This capacity is given in Nm3/h.


NON-CONVENTIONAL GAS

shale gas and coal bed gas, also known as coal bed methane.


NORMAL VOLUME

3.


NATIONAL OR VIRTUAL HUB

Gas trading point without a specific location: this is generally the case when the hub support is all or part of the transport network, whether it is national or local. All the gas injected into this network via its various entry points is considered as potentially available for trading and deliverable at any delivery point in the network.
