WTM Spoke at the 2017 Platts Gas Storage Outlook Conference

At the 2017 conference, WTM Energy showed another valuable but neglected component of storage extrinsic value exists:
  • Seasonal spreads are historically low, so storage operator demand charges are taking a big hit

  • But with low spreads comes high extrinsic value and operators need to go after that value

  • WTM estimated the extrinsic value now to be almost three times intrinsic value for Gulf, slow-turn storage with standard charges

  • WTM then discussed two major ways how operators could collect that whole extra extrinsic value: Parking and loaning spot to outer months using the operatorís storage; forming a trading shop to optimally trade the operatorís storage.

At the 2016 conference, WTM Energy showed another valuable but neglected component of storage extrinsic value exists:
  • This component is not derived from volatility

  • It comes from expected peaks and valleys of cash prices within months

  • The strategy of baseloading while collecting some cash-price opportunities misses collecting it

  • Only a cash trading storage model can maximize it

WTMís New Storage Model Is Here!

SOSv3.0 Ė A Comprehensive, Profit-Maximizing Approach from Valuations to Recommendations for Optimally Injecting, Withdrawing and Hedging

  • Traders now have the ability to enter short-term forecasts of cash prices and see their effects on optimal results

  • The user interface is much more attractive and easy to navigate

  • A fully automated and integrated performance tracker now exists: See through time if you are realizing your budgeted value from the beginning of the year

  • More operational constraints can now be optimized around

Much more value can be had by just trading cash prices to collect intrinsic rather than delivering pro-rata for a month. If this idea intrigues you Ė it doesnít everyone Ė then contact us and weíll show you.

"Itís September, Iím 75% filled, but cash is 15 cents over prompt now: Do I inject or withdraw?" The WTM storage model can tell you!

The WTM natural gas storage model is a next generation storage model that gives not just (accurate) storage values, but also gives profit maximizing results each day for when to inject, when to withdraw, and how to best hedge the extrinsic. It is these daily results that make the WTM storage model cutting edge: No other storage model on the market produces such profit maximizing results.

  • So now you can use a storage model to help you two ways: (1) in valuations for smarter bidding, (2) in daily trading and hedging for monetizing those valuations.

  • Just think of how much more profit can be had if the WTM model makes you an extra 5 cents per MMBtu between the two ways on your working gas capacity!

AND STORAGE OPERATORS . . . even though you can't take title to working gas, WTM can show you how to use the model to collect much more extrinsic, and actually even increase extrinsic, rather than merely selling firm contracts and settling for low percentages of extrinsic.
