The Natural Gas Marketing Commodity Management Solution - Commodity XL

Natural Gas Marketing Trading and Risk Management

The role of natural gas marketers is quite complex, and it can fit between any buyer and seller in the natural gas supply chain. Marketers may be affiliates of producers, pipelines, and local utilities, or may be separate business entities.

Marketing natural gas can include all of the intermediate steps that a particular purchase requires, including arranging transportation, storage, accounting, and basically any other step required to facilitate the sale of natural gas. Marketers wishing to succeed must have sophisticated energy trading and risk management (ETRM) systems in place that not only transact and capture data in real time, but that also provide critical business intelligence and analysis information to make optimal decisions around trade execution, position management, and scheduling.
