This course is for professionals that work for and with natural gas local distribution companies (LDCs) and need a better understanding of them. The course will describe the role, infrastructure and operations of LDCs in the natural gas supply chain and their relationship to State Public Utility Commissions (PUCs), Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). 

The agenda will include an overview of the domestic natural gas industry, supply chain with emphasis on pipelines, underground and surface storage and liquefied natural gas. Since LDCs actively purchase and transport wholesale natural gas to serve their retail customers, this course will discuss pipeline nominations, bidweek and daily markets, and how LDCs hedge their gas supply and price volatility. 

In addition, it will discuss natural gas industry trends that are affecting LDCs; these include growing opposition to new natural gas pipelines, methane leaks, and new FERC, PHMSA and Trump Administration policies, regulations and executive orders.

Use of Natural Gas Indices

How Natural Gas was priced in 2016

Recently the FERC held a technical conference on Natural Gas Indices. Back in March 2017, I was asked by the the Natural Gas & Electricity Journal to write about natural gas indices. I hope the article below will provide a good overview of the issues and stimulate discussion.
