By June 6, CGT will send the information packet via e-mail to all parties who currently hold a Gas Transmission Service Agreement (GTSA) with CGT and have the "Trader" role in the INSIDEtracc System. The information packet will include details on the offerings available and how to participate in the capacity release process.
