Industry News

Capacity Center has recently added the Sabal Trail Transmission to our inventory of available pipelines for our south region.  This addition brings our total available pipelines to 88.  Sabal Trail will be included in our south region for those interested in our Regional Reports.  Sabal Trail will benefit the Southeast region of the United States by making available additional supplies and new energy infrastructure to support other regional power generators with an increased demand for cleaner burning natural gas.  The pipeline is an interstate transportation line between Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.  For more information on this pipeline and our many valuable offers available now, please contact me via email or phone.

Stop sifting through your emails to find capacity release biddable offers!  Capacity Center now provides our customers with the ability to view all active biddable deals in a webpage interface.  If you are an existing customer and this included “on-demand biddable offer report” is of interest to your team, please contact me to get you setup.  We receive capacity release biddable offer data from the pipelines as it is posted on the EBB and now that information is available to you, on the spot, through our web-based report.  Customer feedback indicates this report is particularly useful during bid hour each day.

The information listed above and many other types of reports can be created utilizing the informational database.  Please contact Brendan Tierney @ or call (978) 717-6144 for more information.
