Imbalance Trading With Independent Storage Providers

Monday, August 27, 2007

Currently, PG&E's California Gas Transmission customers attempting to perform a Monthly Cumulative Imbalance trade using gas stored with independent storage providers, such as Lodi Gas Storage, LLC. and Wild Goose Gas Storage, will receive an error message when trying to complete the transaction in INSIDEtracc. The error message reads, "Analyzing Contract Type com.pge.gtnd.cgts.dao.contract. TPStorageimbalance that does not have limits!"

CGT is working to correct this system limitation and expects to resolve it by mid-September. Until a solution is in place to allow trades using independent storage providers to occur electronically, a paper trade transaction should be submitted to PG&E. All other imbalance trades may be performed electronically using INSIDEtracc.

How to perform a paper trade:

  1. Print and complete the Imbalance Trading Form This link will open in a new window for Schedule G-Bal Service
  2. Have both trading parties sign the imbalance trade form
  3. Fax the completed form to PG&E at the number listed on the form prior to the imbalance trade deadline

For further assistance completing an imbalance paper trade, please contact your CGT Account Services Representative.
