What is a virtual gas storage?

Virtual gas storage

A virtual gas storage is similar to a gas storage contract, however it is not (fully) backed by a physical storage. Virtual products have typical simpler contract characteristics than those with fully physical backed products. This increases the ease of negotiating and trading such contracts.

Owners with multiple storages may combine the characteristics of the storages into one virtual version. The resulting pooling effect lead to less physical restriction and a commercially more attractive product.

Virtual gas storage products are traded bilateral between market participants, via brokers or via auctions.
