The applicant (the transferee of transmission capacity) must sign a General Gas Transmission Contract with NET4GAS and must meet the financial competence requirements specified in the Network Code. Upon the transfer of capacity, the transferee assumes any and all rights and duties attached to the contractual arrangement with the transferor.
