NYISO forms working group on electric, gas coordination

Rensselaer, N.Y., January 18, 2012 — To improve coordination between its market participants, natural gas utilities, pipelines and other key industry participants, the New York Independent System Operator announced the formation of an Electric-Gas Coordination Working Group. As part of the NYISO's shared governance structure, the new working group will report to both the operating and business issues committees.

The working group will seek to develop a better understanding of the current relationships among participants in the electric and natural gas industries and develop proposals to improve coordination among interstate gas pipeline companies, gas pipeline shippers, electric system operators, electric generators, local gas distribution companies and state and federal regulatory agencies.

In addition, the group will work to identify and resolve issues associated with outages, upgrades, scheduling and planning for the delivery of natural gas, with particular focus on the impact on supplies to electric generation facilities.

Participation in the working group will be open to all NYISO stakeholders. Representatives from the New York State Department of Public Service Gas Division will participate, and gas producers, gas suppliers, interstate pipelines, pipeline shippers and gas distribution companies in New York also will be encouraged to actively participate.
