7Fields (RAG) gas storage facility
This gas storage facility (formerly known as the "Nussdorf/Zagling" with commissioning in April 2014) was further developed last years in the UGS 7Fields storage network. From July 2019, the capacities will amount to 435 million cubic meters ( = 4.9 TWh) with an injection capacity of 151,100 cubic meters of natural gas per hour (= 1.7 GW) and a withdrawal capacity of 226,600 cubic meters of natural gas per hour (= 2.6 GW).
For these capacities an access into the German market area exists via the Storage Interconnection Point Haiming with a connection to the networks of Open Grid Europe GmbH and bayernets GmbH (each bookable via PRISMA (https://platform.prisma-capacity.eu). The access into the Austrian Distribution Area is established via the network of Netz Oberösterreich GmbH (https://www.netzooe.at). This is an essential contribution to security of supply and to market Integration.
