A competitive natural gas supply for high-volume customers

Transportation Services

CenterPoint Energy's Transportation Services offers end-use commercial and industrial customers a choice in their natural gas supply.  By providing customers access to competitive natural gas suppliers, CenterPoint Energy enables customers to maximize the value of their natural gas consumption.

How it works

Commercial and industrial customers that use less than 2,000 therms on their peak day of consumption qualify for CenterPoint Energy's Small Volume Transportation Service and may choose either firm or interruptible transportation service.

Commercial and industrial customers that use 2,000 therms or more on their peak day of consumption qualify for CenterPoint Energy's Large Volume Transportation Service and may choose either firm or interruptible transportation service.

When enrolled in Transportation Services, end-use customers may select from a list of active, competitive natural gas suppliers or a supplier of their own choosing who will use CenterPoint Energy's natural gas distribution system to ship natural gas to the end-use customer's facility.

Transportation Services is a choice for the end-use customer, and participation is not a requirement for natural gas service.  If an end-use customer does not choose to participate in Transportation Services, the customer will continue to receive the same safe, reliable natural gas sales services provided by CenterPoint Energy.

Reliable service

Transportation Services ensures the same reliable delivery of energy to the end-use customers that choose firm transportation service that CenterPoint Energy has been providing customers for more than 130 years, while providing qualified end-use customers the choices they desire when making critical business decisions.  For those customers that choose interruptible transportation service, CenterPoint Energy will strive to deliver all gas to the end-use customer that their supplier delivers into CenterPoint Energy's town border station serving that end-use customer.
