FERC Survey to Determine Cooperation with Reporting Standards

LCG, Sept. 8, 2003--Two surveys will be conducted by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, one in October, and the next in March, to determine whether natural gas and electricity traders are conforming to voluntary guidelines established by the agency regarding price reporting to index publishers.

Buyers and sellers of gas and electricity in the cash market will be asked to respond to 20 questions that are meant to gauge the level of participation in price reporting, the detail with which trades are being reported, and company systems for circulation of such information beyond traders, to managers.

Comments on the surveys will be accepted through Sept. 17. Some index publishers have already submitted ideas about how more meaningful and accurate price indices can be developed. The departure of some companies from energy trading has impacted the volume of data reported, as has companies' wariness concerning possible investigations into alleged manipulation.
