The liberalisation of the Danish natural gas market in 2004 has made it possible for everyone to set up as a gas supplier in Denmark.

To be allowed to supply gas in a Danish distribution area, a new gas supplier on the Danish natural gas market must comply with the following conditions:

  1. Gas supplier framework agreement with Energinet.dk
    Energinet.dk uses a gas supplier framework agreement. The framework agreement and electronic template for base data in Energinet.dk’s register of players can be downloaded from Energinet.dk’s website. One month and 13 days before the month in which the gas supply may start, Energinet.dk must receive the base data as well as a signed copy of the framework agreement.
  2. Registration in the register of players
    To be registered in the register of players a new gas supplier needs an EAN-GLN (European Article Number - Global Location Number). The numbers can be obtained from GS1 Denmark, tel. +45 39 27 85 27. For further details go to www.gs1.dk.
  3. The Rules for Gas Distribution
    This document is a set of rules which together with the gas supplier agreement governs the gas supplier’s cooperation with the distribution company regarding the gas supplier’s supply of natural gas and the distribution company’s transport of natural gas through the distribution system to the consumers
  4. Gas supplier agreement with the distribution company
    The gas supplier must have entered into a gas supplier agreement with the relevant distribution company and must have registered in and received approval of a player relationship for the consumer portfolio in question from the register of players. Please contact each distribution company for further information: DONG Distribution, HNG Midt-Nord, Naturgas Fyn and/or Aalborg Kommune, Gasforsyningen.
  5. EDI-communication
    Communication between the gas supplier and the distribution company may be in the form of EDI-based communication or other communication. If the gas supplier is unable or unwilling to manage systems for EDI-based communication, the gas supplier may ask a third party to undertake the EDI-based communication on its behalf. A new gas supplier can decide to postpone the use of EDI-based communication for a period of up to 18 months. After 18 months, at the latest, EDI-based communication must be established.
