- Natural Gas Procurement & Supply Management
Our team performs natural gas logistics services and gas price risk management services for the Kansas Ethanol LLC ethanol production facility near Lyons, Kansas. As agent, we procure natural gas supplies from gas marketing companies on behalf of the client and ensure reliable delivery of supplies across the gas pipeline network.
We also negotiate gas supply purchase agreements with natural gas suppliers and transportation service agreements with interstate gas pipeline companies. Our team schedules gas supplies for delivery into the client's transportation agreements and monitors the plant’s daily gas consumption to verify that the receipts and delivery of gas packages match and that Kansas Ethanol’s imbalances are within the tolerances allowed by the pipeline’s transportation tariff.
We review all natural gas invoices for accuracy and approve them for payment. In the event of an invoice error, our team resolves the billing issue. We also provide a monthly forecast of estimated natural gas costs, including gas supply costs, pipeline transportation costs and local distribution costs.
