Gas Trading Australia Pty Ltd (gasTrading) was established in 2007 to assist in the smooth and efficient operation of gas sale and purchase contracts. The increasing cost of natural gas, and the reduced flexibility of gas contracts, has made the management of these contracts a vital part of corporate planning for any company which uses natural gas.
Through managing client gas contracts, gasTrading helps to contain expenditure on gas and to minimise fuel supply costs. Our Gas Contract Management Service ensures maximum efficiency by working with the client and paying close attention to the client's gas needs and usage. This reduces the risk of nominating too much or too little gas and minimises fuel costs for the client. From an industry perspective, this focus on gas supply management means that all participants in the gas supply chain are better able to manage their assets.
A need to manage the under and over supply positions of clients led gasTrading to develop a Spot Market. By offering a platform for the sale and purchase of natural gas between clients, potential win-win outcomes were realised. The gasTrading Spot Market has grown considerably since its inception in July 2009. Almost every shipper on the major pipelines in WA has now contracted in some way to use the gasTrading Spot Market.
As knowledge of gasTrading's Services has grown, parties without a Gas Transport Agreement from one of the Points of Supply have sought gasTrading to provide a Gas Transport Service. gasTrading can arrange for delivery of gas to virtually any point within the network of pipelines within Western Australia, either as a shipper of the gas in its own right or through other parties. A Service can be arranged on most Western Australian gas pipelines.
Following the success of gasTrading Services and value being created for clients and new customers by the Spot Market, gasTrading is also branching into Firm Gas Supply. gasTrading or Agora Gas, where required, will work with clients and new customers to secure an optimised supply arrangement with the appropriate level of firm supply and flexibility to meet specific needs.
Following the growth of the gasTrading Spot Market, and seeing the value created for clients and new customers, gasTrading has expanded its services to provide Firm Gas Supply. gasTrading, or its associated company, Agora Gas Pty Ltd, will work with clients to secure an optimised supply arrangement with the appropriate balance of firm supply and spot supply flexibility to meet their specific needs.
