The new tariffs, fees and charges for gas, approved by the Spanish Markets and Competition Commission and by RD 1184/2020, represent the regulated part of the terms that appear on the invoice, and are intended to cover different concepts that we detail below: Circular 6/2020 of July 22
Here are details of all the sections included in these gas tariffs:
1. Access tariff to local transport and network networks: These cover all the costs for the piping system, gas pipelines and external connections.
2. Access fees to gas storage: They cover the costs for underground tanks to ensure a constant supply of gas to users.
3. Access tariff to regasification facilities: a certain part of the gas consumed is transported in a liquid state (LNG, Liquefied Natural Gas). Before entering the transport network it is necessary for a plant to transform it back into gas in a safe and controlled way, and this infrastructure is what this tariff pays for.
4. System charges: These pay for regulated costs for the system other than those relating to the use of gas installations.
