Gas Networks Ireland (GNI) has applied for a Great Britain (GB) gas interconnector licence (“licence”) and has requested that Special Condition 1 (see Appendix) is inserted upon licence grant. Upon inserting this condition into the licence (if granted), Standard Licence Conditions (SLC) 10 and 11 would be taken out of effect in GNI’s licence unless/until the Authority directs they are brought back into effect.

This letter sets out the background and context to the proposal to include Special Condition 1 as a particular condition of the licence (if granted) in accordance with the provisions of section 7B(4)(a) of the Gas Act 1986, and invites comments from interested parties by 14 April 2020.
