Gas Transportation Maze

Gas transportation describes a process whereby a utility customer is able to buy natural gas from a third-party supplier rather than the natural gas utility who has held a monopoly in the customer’s area. The federal government deregulated the natural gas market several years ago, but left the practical matters and the implementation of an alternative system to the individual states. This has opened the natural gas market up to competition, which in turn benefits natural gas customers.

Some states have been involved in gas transportation for many years while other states are just beginning to implement gas transportation. Since URC is a national company, we are up to date on every states’ deregulation measures and we can help you decide if your company would benefit from purchasing third-party gas. We can also help you negotiate with a third-party gas supplier.
