Modification 16 Nominations

This proposal is being made to address Nominations arrangements as a result of the implementation of EU Codes and the transition of the Northern Irish transportation regime to an entry-exit model. It introduces arrangements for Shippers to make entry nominations independently of exit nominations, and the procedures by which nominations (and renominations) at an interconnection point will be matched with upstream nominations and confirmed by the TSOs. It also aligns the timing for submission of exit nominations with those for entry, and introduces trade nominations, which are to enable Shippers to trade gas with one another at the Northern Irish Balancing Point.
