Customer Relationship Management & Contracts Management

Optimize your midstream process by using GASTAR for Customer Relationship Management and Contracts Management. Our software provides an integrated pipeline transportation solution to support all transaction-related aspects of Shipper/Transporter business practices in compliance with NAESB standards. The solution includes a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Module, which houses all customer information and works in tandem with a Contracts Management Module to manage all city gate suppliers, marketers, pooling tariff structures, LDC transportation customers, and any other business parties.

Pipelines & Points

GASTAR also features a comprehensive Pipeline & Points repository with the capability of handling the most complicated allocations network and usage among meters with different tariff gas. The system ties into a range of SCADA and measurement devices to allocate natural gas from designated measurement points.

Electronic Bulletin Board (Web Portal)

The GASTAR Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB) supports nominations, scheduling, shipper notices, shipper measurement information, imbalance reporting, and invoice summary data. The EBB contains a Public Informational Postings (IP) component, compliant with NAESB data models and transaction standards, where customers can pull transactional reporting. The EBB interfaces to a parallel workstation Nominations and Scheduling Module for internal management, which contains added features for managing transactions (separate from the EBB client-oriented features) and permits retroactive data changes; whereas, the EBB prohibits transactions for any past date. The data entered in the workstation populates seamlessly into the EBB and vice versa.

Capacity Release Management

Another important feature for our pipeline customers is the GASTAR’s Capacity Release Management, which handles daily, monthly, yearly, and permanent activity with the ability to display Capacity Release by requester. Marketers can post capacity to the EBB in compliance with NAESB standards.

Storage Module & Accounting Module

The Storage Module supports the tracking and allocation of storage injections and withdrawals as scheduled by customers on the pipeline, and the Accounting Module then performs end of month processing of contracts by customer type with drill down capability to view processed and unprocessed contracts. The Accounting Module supports demand and capacity release with totals and details for each contract, including demand statements, with additional capability to support various receipt and delivery zones, as well as daily balance cash outs at the end of the month.
