PRISMA European Capacity Platform GmbH

trac-x Transport Capacity Exchange GmbH was established to create a transparent and non-discriminatory market space for trading secondary natural gas transport capacity across Europe. trac-x was launched in March 2005 and offers registered shippers the possibility to trade long-term and short-term capacity rights on an internet trading platform.

In the course of implementing the requirements of the new German Gas Network Ordinance, trac-x has signed an agreement with the German TSOs to operate a platform for allocating primary transport capacity in Germany. The primary capacity platform is set to be launched by August 2011. In combination with the existing trading platform for secondary transport capacity, trac-x therefore contributes significantly to simplifying European gas trading.
