Natural Gas Transmission


5,784 km pipeline system
19 domestic, 4 import entry points, nearly 400 exit points
6 regional centers, 6 compressor stations
World-class systems operation centre in Siófok, Hungary

FGSZ Ltd is currently the only company in Hungary that holds a natural gas transmission system operator’s license. Aside from domestic natural gas transmission activity, FGSZ also performs transit activities for Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as cross border deliveries towards Romania and Croatia and the Ukraine.

In Hungary, FGSZ Földgázszállító Zrt. (FGSZ Natural Gas Transmission Private Company Limited by Shares, in short form FGSZ Ltd, and referred to as FGSZ) is currently the only company to hold a transmission system operator license. Its activity is carried out under market conditions regulated by law. Aside from domestic natural gas transmission, FGSZ also performs transit activities for Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as cross border deliveries towards Romania, and Croatia and Ukraine. In international comparison, the Company’s pipeline network represents the highest technology standards. FGSZ ranks among the region’s companies of strategic importance. Its dynamism and efficiency make the Company one of Europe’s most significant transmission system operators.

The pipeline developments of strategic importance carried out by FGSZ in recent years safeguard the Company’s future, establish its role as a regional distributor, as well as ensuring Hungary has a safe, environment friendly and competitively priced gas supply. We are prepared to face the challenges, tasks and requirements deriving from the establishment of a market which is liquid, integrated and diversified in terms of its resources, and which is also supported by the European Union. Our strategic goals necessitate further efficient and wellplanned infrastructure developments.

FGSZ’s Regional Booking Platform (RBP), an IT capacity allocation application developed under a European Union project, which is a Hungarian-Romanian pilot in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 984/2013 establishing a Network Code on Capacity Allocation Mechanisms in Gas Transmission Systems and supplementing Regulation (EC) No. 715/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council , was launched at the end of 2014. This application is suitable for running CAM NC compliant capacity auctions not only at the cross-border or domestic points found in FGSZ’s system, but also at any other network point, even those independent of the cooperating national natural gas transmission system.

Competitive Advantages

Geographic location: FGSZ also plays a key role in terms of regional transit transmission.Quality assurance: In 1997, audited and certified quality management systems were put in place at FGSZ. Since 2014, these have been operating as an integrated system with the following components: Quality Management System (QMS), Technical Safety Management System (TSMS), Information Security Management System (ISMS), Calibration Laboratory Management System (CLMS) and Welding Management System (WMS). In 2014, FGSZ successfully completed two integrated inspections carried out by SGS Hungária Kft. in accordance with the ISO 9001:2008 and the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 standards. The accreditation process for the calibration laboratory’s activity is underway in accordance with the provisions of MSZ EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. In 2014, the National Accreditation Board reviewed and accepted documentation submitted in June 2013. The accreditation will likely be acquired in 2015. In 2014, FGSZ began to create and implement the Energy Management System (EMS) in accordance with the ISO 50001 standard, which is expected to be completed by 5 December 2015.Stable cash flow: The o peration o f F GSZ’s h ighpressure natural gas transmission grid of approximately 5,800 km – covering the entire territory of Hungary – and the non-discriminatory sale of its capacities and supplementary services provide stable cash-flow for the MOL-Group.

Key Achievements

Best Employer for the fifth time

FGSZ won the honorable title of Best Employer for the fifth time in the 2013 Aon Hewitt Best Employer Survey, while in the regional competition it has been named Best Employer in Central and Eastern Europe on three occasions.


European dimensions

FGSZ is interested in creating a more efficient gas market resting, on several pillars. Therefore, in the 10-year period between 2015 and 2024, it wishes to participate in comprehensive infrastructure developments at both Hungarian and international level to promote the creation of the domestic liquid gas market. The transformation of the gas market is allowing domestic consumers to access gas sources competing against each other in the region, and thus to optimise their portfolios in line with their possibilities.

As the first step in our strategic investments between 2006 and 2010, we significantly increased Eastern import capacity in line with the development of our strategic storage facility. We also constructed the Hungarian-Croatian and Hungarian-Romanian interconnectors.

The second stage of strategic investments planned for the 2011-2020 period includes development in the north-west and north-east. FGSZ is planning to expand existing import capacities from the West, along with internal improvements to guarantee security of supply for the Trans-Danubia region independently of the HAG pipeline.

In 2012, the Company concluded a cooperation agreement with UKRTRANSGAZ for natural gas transmission from Hungary to Ukraine, as the result of which it has provided the option of natural gas transmission to Ukraine on an interruptible basis since the spring of 2013.

FGSZ has set the goal of guaranteeing the possibility to import natural gas from every direction in the interest of security of supply, and of becoming an integral part of the region that surrounds it by making its existing cross-border connections bi-directional. Developing the option for gas supply from Romania was an important step in this regard. Although capacity opened in the first stage only allows for the delivery of a smaller amount, FGSZ and its Romanian partner are working together to expand this significantly. Hungary’s gas supply will be set on a more secure footing by the connection of southern and south-eastern, then eastern, and finally northern and western gas sources.

The long-term strategic investments of FGSZ make it possible for Hungary to leave its current peripheral role in gas transmission and to develop into a regional gas distribution center in the next decade.

About us

Company details

MOL Group’s Downstream division is made up of different business activities that are part of an integrated value chain. This value chain turns crude oil into a range of refined products, which are moved and marketed for domestic, industrial and transport use. The products include, among others, gasoline, diesel, heating oil, aviation fuel, lubricants, bitumen, sulphur and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). In addition, it produces and sells petrochemicals worldwide and holds a leading position in the petrochemical sector in the Central Eastern Europe region.

Our “Six production unit model”, optimised by Supply Chain Management, benefits from the synergistic operations of our complex asset base. Our high net cash marginproducing refineries in Hungary and Slovakia make the most of their geographical locations, as well as their well-balanced product and customer portfolios. MOL Group Petrochemicals brings distinct advantages to MOL Group’s refineries whilst delivering high quality products to our customers.

For MOL Group’s refineries that can be supplied from the sea, feedstock optimisation ensures that we select the most appropriate raw materials from a wide slate of crude oil types. Based on actual crude oil market trends and, as a result of supply chain optimisation, between 2012 and 2014 we achieved a continuous increase in alternative crude processing in our refineries, compared to the Urals. Crude and raw materials supplies and low-cost product distribution are achieved through our extensive pipeline system and increased storage depot coverage. Our diverse logistics network, combined with well-positioned commercial activities, remains a key advantage in capturing sales margin revenues and reaching end customers.
