In addition to increasing our pipeline inventory to 100 pipes, has also developed a “Regional Market Report” and “On-Demand Biddable Offer Report”.  The regional report includes all the pertinent capacity award information allowing you to view the players, asset management activity, short and long term release strategies, winning bid rates, etc. This is the perfect tool for analyzing a specific trading region.  Available on a monthly or annual basis, the Regional Market Report is broken out by pipelines located in the following four regions: East, West, Midwest and South.  Our biddable offer report allows you an instantaneous snapshot of the biddable capacity available in current marketplace.  This feature is particularly useful during bid hour. For more information or to receive a sample report contact Brendan Tierney.

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.  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.
