Plinacro notifies potential bidders on the start of the second round of the binding phase of the Open Season procedure. 

Plinacro as a Transmission System Operator in the Republic of Croatia and FGSZ as a Transmission System Operator in Hungary are jointly carrying out the binding phase of the Open Season procedure.

Plinacro and FGSZ invite all potential applicants to take part in the Open Season procedure that will allow shippers to bid for capacity at the  entry point into transmission system (Omišalj) and Drávaszerdahely interconnection point in the direction from Croatia to Hungary.

Plinacro and LNG Croatia jointly wish to implement the LNG Project which includes the construction of the LNG terminal on the island of Krk and the gas pipeline for the delivery of gas from the LNG terminal.  Plinacro has harmonized the Open Season Procedure Rules and the time schedule of carrying out the relevant procedure with the Open Season procedure LNG Croatia; however, it is necessary to highlight that two separate Open Season procedures (Open Season procedure Plinacro/FGSZ and Open Season procedure LNG Croatia) will be carried out since Plinacro/FGSZ and LNG Croatia offer different products in their Open Season procedures.
