The article reports that the gas industry concern over key calculations that affect how much gas can be flowed into Great Britain's high-pressure National Transmission System (NTS) has prompted a further U-turn by energy regulator Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem). The issue centres on new baseline entry capacity figures for the various entry points on the NTS. These have already been the subject of a High Court challenge in respect of Teesside.
