Low Cost Energy Transportation
SEMI owns firm (uninterrupted) natural gas transportation rights on the Southern Natural and Transco pipelines. This provides shippers with the capacity to move natural gas on a firm basis from primary receipt points to primary delivery points to ensure that the gas gets to market.
With our large presence in the Southeast, we’ve developed a network of producer and supplier relationships that ensures reliable, competitively priced natural gas supply and capacity. The large aggregate volumes we move on the interstate pipelines allow us to benefit from economies of scale and purchase natural gas at highly competitive prices.
What does this mean for you? It means you can rely on SEMI for low-cost, reliable natural gas transportation. There's more:
- We have an understanding of the interstate pipelines' operations for delivering firm and interruptible gas supplies, including curtailments (cutbacks to balance natural gas requirements with natural gas supply), operational flow orders (mechanisms to protect the operational integrity of the pipelines) and how to buy/sell excess capacity on each of the respective systems.
- We possess knowledge of the pipelines’ Electronic Bulletin Boards, including quality and operational issues, for use in monitoring gas consumption.
- SEMI stays abreast of our region's regulatory requirements and major trends in the industry. Our balancing services are second to none.
- Our experienced and knowledgeable operations staff provides us with the ability to protect our customers from exposure to imbalance and scheduling penalties.
