Understanding Natural Gas Pricing

Pricing of the Natural Gas consumed by your business consists of the following.

Commodity Cost: The production cost of natural gas from the gas well. Natural gas pricing fluctuates based on market forces.

Interstate Pipeline Transportation Charges: This fee is paid for the usage of the system of pipelines which transport and deliver natural gas supplies from the well head to the market area. These pipelines are regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

Local Gas Utility Delivery Charges: The fee your local gas utility company charges to transport natural gas to your business. This charge is two-fold and consists of a variable consumption amount plus a fixed monthly customer charge.
