In 2016, as part of customer connection services, PSG issued approx. 127 thousand grid connection conditions (up by approx. 20% from 2015) and executed more than 64 thousand agreements for connection to the mains gas network (up by approx. 30% from 2015). Starting from January 1st, 2017, a new three-tier organisational structure was introduced, comprising the head office, 17 gas distribution branches, 167 local gas utilities and 67 service points. PSG’s organisational structure corresponds to the administrative division of Poland, which will simplify interaction with local governments and facilitate access to PSG’s services. PSG’s mission is to provide gas fuel distribution services to all gas fuel consumers and traders (while ensuring that all of them receive equal treatment) on the terms and conditions and to the extent defined in the Energy Law. Distribution services are provided on the basis of relevant distribution agreements. In 2016, PSG executed in total 21 distribution agreements and two Interoperator Distribution Agreements. In the same period, about 62 thousand gas fuel buyers changed their supplier.
In 2016, all settlements between PSG and its customers were based on Tariff No. 3 for Gas Fuel Distribution Services and LNG Regasification Services, as amended by the President of URE on December 16th, 2015, and then on June 9th, 2016. As a result of the amendments, the tariff validity term was extended until December 31st, 2016. Rates of distribution and regasification service charges remained unchanged.
