Gain visibility into critical blind spots in the gas market with the industry’s only proprietary monitored storage data
Proprietary monitoring sheds light on fundamental storage changes to inform supply and demand
Using infrared imaging and patented electro-magnetic field monitors, analysts are able to know - in real-time - estimated injection and withdrawal values at key storage sites. Regressed data are correlated to reported inventory values and grossed-up to estimate remaining market values. Genscape’s proprietary data are available as a Datafeed service or via the Natural Gas Analyst tool, the industry’s leading analytics platform.
Texas Intrastate Storage Monitoring:
According to the EIA, nearly 30 percent of the U.S.’s proved natural gas reserves are in Texas, yet there is virtually no public data on intrastate movements, forcing gas market participants to make important business decisions with a major blind spot. Using proprietary monitoring techniques and expert analysis, Genscape’s Texas Intrastate Storage Monitoring service unmasks this unknown to deliver the industry’s only point of visibility into this crucial piece of the puzzle.
Genscape’s proprietary advantage allows for dramatic improvements to estimates of Texas storage activity and South Central storage models.
NGPL Storage Breakout:
Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America holds 290 Bcf of working gas capacity under a single publically reported nomination point. This capacity, held among seven facilities in the EIA’s Midwest and South Central regions, creates a significant problem for regional storage models and balances. Genscape has installed monitors at five of the seven facilities in this system and is building models to breakdown the NGPL flow values into regional and facility level estimates. By breaking down this massive flow into useful components, Genscape will provide clarity into the previously obscure NGPL storage activity.
Michigan Intrastate Storage:
Michigan storage serves as a critical supply to the Chicago and Midwest markets, yet only 39 percent of Michigan’s daily deliverable storage capacity is available publically. Genscape has installed monitors to cover and additional 41 percent of Michigan’s daily deliverable storage capacity through five facilities. Using Genscape’s proprietary and public data, analysts are now able to see 80 percent of Michigan’s daily storage activity in near real-time.
