Automating Natural Gas Pipeline Tariffs in Endur: Value Creed’s Success Story with NatGasHub Integration

Performance Challenge

In a rapidly evolving market, being efficient is a key competitive edge. A global trading firm with diverse operations across all major commodities was facing issues with their manual processes for Natural Gas Pipeline Tariffs. Users were facing the burdensome task of manually scraping tariffs from numerous pipeline websites, monitoring these sites for changes without clear notification, and painstakingly inputting tariff data line by line into Endur. Moreover, market data changes, especially tariffs, incur substantial reconfiguration costs. Modern API interfaces for tariff imports reduce manual work, enhance customization, and streamline tariff management within the Endur system, improving ETRM efficiency.

Our proposed solution enhances decision-making by driving competitive advantage and efficiency gains. The integration offers benefits related to gas scheduling, real-time tracking, mobile accessibility, and tech support. The integration also eliminates the need for a manual data entry process and daily monitoring of various gas pipeline websites.
