This document, adopted in the EU in 2009, requires suppliers to provide access to their "pipe" to third parties, i.e. competitors. If not, then the part of the transmission capacity must remain in reserve. Therefore, before removing the EC limit Gazprom had the right to use only half of the OPAL capacities.
Interim measure, suspend the decision of the EC, were adopted at the request of PGNIG, which is in March 2017 was joined by Lithuania and Latvia.
