Abstract: The paper describes the flow network methodology approach and the results obtained by the probabilistic gas network simulator ProGasNet software tool. The ProGasNet has been applied to a number of test cases, all based on real gas transmission networks of the EU countries. The ProGasNet model provides an indication of the worst networks nodes in terms of security of supply and provides their numerical ranking. The paper shows an example of bottleneck analysis. The model is very powerful to compare and evaluate different supply options, new network development plans and analyse potential crisis situations. The flow network approach could be applied also to other commodity networks: power grids, water and heat supply networks.
