Genscape’s new Natural Gas Portal consolidates hundreds of maintenance and notice events from electronic bulletin boards (EBBs) to help natural gas traders streamline their daily processes and stay informed of unavoidable events impacting the market. Genscape collects notices from over 200 pipelines that are fed into the Portal within minutes of their availability on the pipeline websites. In addition, Genscape provides maintenance events for over 70 major interstate pipelines.
Genscape’s gas analysts evaluate every aggregate maintenance event and add value by categorizing the events by date, severity and market impact. These events are then delivered via the Portal providing the ability to customize the pipelines of interest and download the customized list to various calendars. The portal also houses historical data for use in benchmarking and forecasting.
“As a former trader I understand the frustrations the industry has with notice and maintenance events. These notices are difficult and time consuming to break out into individual events and are often not contained in the notice section of a pipeline EBB. Genscape’s Natural Gas Portal makes it easy for traders, schedulers and analysts to not only pull these events on-demand, but to customize the platform and view only what is relevant to them,” says Genscape’s Senior Natural Gas Analyst, Andy Krebs.
Notice and maintenance information is provided in a user friendly, searchable format with the option to save search queries for repeat use and view results in calendar format. Genscape’s analysts provide maintenance impact assessments in a standardized format that allows the user to search for maintenance events that are most likely to impact their day-to-day operations. The Portal also has priority statuses assigned to notices, allowing users to search for only the critical notices affecting them. Maintenance search results can be exported to Microsoft Outlook calendar, Google Calendar, or iCal so that users can set up daily alerts.
The Portal delivers on-demand access to Genscape’s North American Basis Reports. The daily Basis Reports profile sixteen distinct regions across North America, tracking natural gas supply, demand, storage, imports and exports. Each report provides advance notice of natural gas price movements, daily commentary, and real-time alerts. Subscribers of Genscape’s Natural Gas Basis Reports and Portal receive direct access via email, instant message or phone to the experienced traders and analysts who maintain the Portal.
