New Marketer Targeting Western United States
SCANA Energy Marketing is expanding its presence in the western
United States through a joint venture with Intermarket Trading Co.
The two companies formed SCANA Energy Trading LLC to market gas and
other energy related services in the West. SCANA Energy Trading
LLC, will be a subsidiary of SCANA Energy Marketing and will serve
as the company's marketing vehicle for energy management, gas and
retail electric services in California and other western states.
"We have been working successfully with Intermarket Trading over
the past two years, but this new relationship will allow us to
broaden energy services to our customers in a changing energy
market," said Charles Rampey, president of SCANA Energy Marketing.
The new company will target primarily industrial and commercial
customers and may get involved with aggregating some California
apartment complexes as electric customers, said SCANA spokesman
Roger Schrum. He said SCANA's western marketing activities will be
focused through the joint venture company. SCANA also is active in
the Southeast, Gulf Coast and upper Midwest.
SCANA Energy Marketing markets gas, electricity and
energy-related management services to producers and consumers in 26
states from offices in Columbia, SC; Houston, TX; and Traverse
City, MI. The company is a subsidiary of SCANA Corp., a $5 billion
asset-based energy holding company primarily engaged in
electricity, gas and telecommunications services.
Intermarket Trading Co. is engaged in foreign export of
petroleum and energy related products such as chemicals,
