Common Codes of Transfer Points on Natural Gas Pipelines (GAS*CODE)

Dwights, under the direction of the INGAA Information Services Committee, completed the design, development, and commercial introduction of GAS*CODE, a data base of pipeline transferlreceipt points where nominations or gas title change can take place.

The first commercial release included over 30,000 transferlreceipt points provided by eighteen interstate pipeline companies. Geographically, GAS*CODE coverage, while not complete, includes 40 states and the Federal Offshore area.

Commercial introduction of GAS*CODE represents a significant step in providing gas industry trading partners a low cost method for increasing the use of electronic data interchange (EDI) to expedite gas transportation transactions and take advantage of opportunities to reduce administrative costs.
