Growing Number of TSOs at PRISMA attracts new platform participants

(PresseBox) (Leipzig, ) The rising number of TSOs participating in the European capacity platform PRISMA has attracted a number of new gas trading companies to the platform over the past year.

PRISMA had a total of 376 registered gas trading companies in July 2014, up 49 % compared to the number of shippers registered at the launch of its platform in April 2013. This translates into a total of 123 new trading companies that have registered to the PRISMA platform over the period. Out of the 376 registered trading companies, 81 % have been actively trading on the platform.

The rise in the number of participants at PRISMA comes as a result of the market's constantly growing interest towards the services offered which enable users, amongst other things, to easily acquire interconnection capacity between the main European hubs.

Götz Lincke, managing director at PRISMA said: "These numbers reflect the high acceptance the PRISMA platform has gained in the European gas market since its launch. It shows that our original concept to create a platform jointly operated by many European TSOs was the right approach and has proven to be a major step towards creating the EU internal market."
