Abstract

This paper presents the system for the strategic storage of gas imposed by theAct on Fuel Reserves and evaluates its compliance with the relevant provisions ofEU law, in particular the so-called 2nd and 3rd Internal Energy Market Packages.Unlike the case of legislation on strategic oil stocks, EU legislation on gas doesnot impose on Member States any obligation to maintain strategic reserves of gas.Furthermore, Member States are obliged to implement common rules establishingan internal market in natural gas including Third Party Access TPA to storagefacilities. However, Member States are allowed to impose on undertakings operatingin the gas sector, in the general economic interest, public service obligations whichmay relate to supply security, and EU law recognizes the contribution of gasstorage to the security of supply. Thus, the objective of this article is to evaluate whether the Act on Fuel Reserves as well as the amendments to it proposed bythe Polish Ministry of the Economy are in line with the relevant provisions of EUlaw. The analysis includes the position of the Court of Justice presented in severaljudgements as regards the concept of public service obligations.
