- Pacific Gas and Electric Company requires all customers to meet creditworthiness approval. A California Gas Transmission credit application is available in .pdf format as one of our Standard Forms.
- Storage end-use customers need an executed Natural Gas Service Agreement (NGSA) and a Gas Transmission Service Agreement (GTSA). Marketers need only a GTSA.
- The GTSA, NGSA (if required), and the necessary transportation and storage exhibits must be submitted before service can be extended.
- Protection from involuntary diversion: During an Involuntary Diversion, when gas deliveries to core customers are threatened, gas withdrawn from storage is the last gas diverted to serve core customers
- As-Available services: Allows withdrawal during the winter and summer and injection during the winter and summer storage season
- Imbalance trading: Allows flexibility in managing imbalances
- Inventory transfer: Allows a customer to trade storage inventory balances with other CGT storage customers for added portfolio management and flexibility
- Hedging: Storage can provide an opportunity to hedge other gas deals and allows customers to minimize risk and lock in prices for natural gas
- Back-up supply: Customers contemplating getting rid of alternate fuel systems may be able to save money using storage for backup. Benefits could include lower maintenance and elimination of testing backup systems
