NGI's Natural Gas Forward Basis Prices are expressed in U.S.$/MMBtu and based on indicative data obtained from traders, exchanges and deals provided by energy companies. "Fixed Price" represent the forward prices of natural gas delivered for each reference period at the various locations/hubs. "Basis Price" represent the differential, for each reference period, between the Henry Hub and various locations/hubs. The Summer and Winter prices are simple averages of Apr-Oct (7 months) and Nov-Mar (5 months) respectively. "Bal Smr" and "Bal Wtr" prices represent simple averages of the remaining months in those seasonal strips (after at least one month has passed).

NOVA/AECO C Description

Includes deals that are conducted anywhere within TransCanada's Alberta System, otherwise known as NOVA. NOVA charges a non-mileage based postage stamp rate to move gas along its system, called the NOVA Inventory Transfer (NIT), so theoretically, there is little difference in price for gas delivered anywhere within the NOVA grid. The AECO Hub is a trademarked name used to describe Niska Gas Storage's two facilities (Suffield and Countess), but the pricing point AECO C is a virtual point that has come to mean all gas that is traded along NOVA under the provisions of the NOVA Inventory Transfer service. Reported in $C/GJ.
