Producers

 

Natural gas is arguably the most important energy focused commodity in the world. Its range of functions are second to none, therefore inventory management, trade execution and position management are crucial to optimize margins for natural gas producing companies. Organizations failing to make quick decisions in these areas will struggle to remain profitable longterm.

  • capSpire has the deep industry knowledge to streamline business processes to manage properties, marketers and royalty owners.
  • Our experts are proficient at implementing division order interest and revenue disbursement solutions for natural-gas producing services companies.
 

Wholesale

 

The natural gas industry today has experienced a profound transformation. With wellhead prices no longer regulated, natural gas prices now depend on supply and demand forces, thus opening up competition and choice.  Instead of interstate pipelines taking ownership of the natural gas commodity, they now handle only the transportation component, which is still under federal regulation. capSpire’s expertise includes delivering near real-time solutions to manage market-area exposure for natural gas wholesalers. 

 
  • We deliver in-system broker reconciliation processes for expedited daily reconciliations.
  • Our team has configured and implemented historical and Monte Carlo value at risk (VaR) for various wholesale gas companies.

Retail

 

Retail natural gas providers must forecast load in a manner that addresses, not only traditional factors like weather, but incorporates the effect of changing customer trends and profiles. They need to manage large amounts of data and produce timely information for pricing considerations, daily P&L, and gross margin. To stay compliant, companies must stay on top of tariffs and regulatory issues for the multiple, disparate markets in which they participate. To ensure billing accuracy, and have the information necessary to retain, serve and grow their customer base. In order to ensure billing accuracies, and effectively serve and grow their customer base, companies must be nimble enough to take advantage of opportunities in new markets.
