Natural Gas Exchange Inc. (NGX) has agreed to provide the Alberta Department of Energy with an Alberta gas price index, referred to as the Alberta Market Price (AMP). The AMP is a volume-weighted average of cleared transacted prices for all gas delivered in a calendar month at the NGX Alberta market center on the TransCanada Corp. Alberta System, NGX said. The department will use the AMP to calculate its gas reference price, forming the basis of the royalty obligations for Alberta energy producers. The launch of the new pricing regime is planned for January.
