Information for suppliers in Arkansas

Approved Transportation Services suppliers provide natural gas to large-volume end-use commercial and industrial customers within CenterPoint Energy's service area. Suppliers coordinate with CenterPoint Energy Transportation Services on the delivery of the appropriate quantity of natural gas into the CenterPoint Energy distribution system, and CenterPoint Energy transports the natural gas to the end-use customer's meter.

A participating end-use customer can either pay their bill directly to CenterPoint Energy, or their bill can be forwarded to their supplier, who will bundle the supply, upstream pipeline, and distribution charges into one bill.
