Pulse Flexible Trading Analysis 2012

Gas Trading Analysis 2012

Gas-1-300x195

The chart on the left shows the historical and current annual trading price of gas in the UK via the red line. The green line shows what Pulse were able to purchase their flexible gas at over the same annual period.
Using flexible trading our price risk significantly reduced and we were able to deliver prices significantly below market averages.

 

 

Gas-2-300x195The straight red line on the right shows the average price of gas since December 2012 and the straight green line shows the average price for gas price obtained by Pulse customers. The purple straight line shows the lowest possible price of gas for a 12 month contract in 2012. Anyone managing to fix at the lowest position annual point is more likely to have done this by luck rather than design, because:

  • It is virtually impossible to forecast when the lowest point in the annual market will be
  • Logistically mobilising contracts in such a short window is very difficult for large multi-scale contracts

The straight purple line shows the lowest possible price of electricity for a 12 month contract in 2012. As per gas procurement our method cannot guarantee to fix at the lowest point in the market, however, we have seen that our month ahead strategy is never far above the lowest annual point and well below the market average.
