Entry and Exit Points
The acceptance by Trans Austria Gasleitung GmbH of natural gas takes place at the relevant physical Entry Point ("Entry Point") and the deliver of such natural gas by Trans Austria Gasleitung GmbH as Transmission System Operator ("TSO") is only possible at certain points, so called Relevant Exit Points ("Exit Points"). On each Entry and Exit Point the amount of transferred natural gas is measured. At the Entry and the Exit Point the TAG Pipeline System is connect with the Pipeline System of the upstream and downstream Transmission System Operators.
The delivering pressure at the Entry Points of the TAG Pipeline System is situated between 50 bar and 70 bar gauge. The redelivering pressure at the Exit Points depends on the hydraulic conditions and must not exceed 70 bar gauge.
