Industry News

We are proud to announce that we will be offering a new opportunity for those interested in trying out Capacity Center risk free.  Our offer will allow you to receive 7 pipelines of your choice and all Offers, Awards, and System Notices on those pipelines for a period of 30 days.  If you feel your organization conducts business on more than 7 pipelines, we can also offer our complete compliment of 87+ pipelines for a period of 30 days for a very low cost.  Should you elect to continue you trial for a complete year, we will credit your first month towards your remaining 11 month subscription.

The first four months of 2017 have seen 20,788 transactions.  That quantity of deals is comparable to a full year of transactions ten years ago.  In 2006 for example, the total number of deals that year was 22,844.  It is clear that demand and volumes have increased significantly over the years and will likely continue that trajectory for the next ten years.

Our data will help you make better business decisions in the natural gas and electric markets.  If you would like to know who is bidding on your capacity, who was awarded capacity and at what price, a subscription to our data of over 87 interstate pipelines will provide this information and more.  Take advantage of this great offer to experience the benefits of Capacity Center first hand.
