Our client, a West Coast energy utility company, who serves a significant number of natural gas fired power generators and local distribution companies, had difficulty closing their books the prior year due to corrupt storage nominations and schedules.
MidDel Consulting was approached by a Northwestern Power and Gas utility to assist in upgrading the OpenLink Endur Energy Trading and Risk Management (“ETRM”) system, from version fourteen (“v14”) to version seventeen (“v17”), amidst significant market volatility and with an aggressive delivery window required to beat the end-of-year blackout period for any system changes.
Following the re-implementation of the Allegro ETRM system for trading refined petroleum products, our client was then tasked with a second phase of the project to capture physical natural gas trading activity including trade entry, scheduling, actualizing, and invoicing.
Our client, a large North America power company that has a presence in over twenty states, desired to pursue a more retail-centric strategy, and consolidate its Wholesale and Retail System Landscape into one platform to gain efficiencies and better align its system architecture to meet the business needs of its future portfolio.
Client required a solution to monitor real-time data based on readings from OSIsoft PI. Our consultant developed a .Net application that supplied the client a clean, lightweight solution cirtical for their energy traders to monitor their positions.
