“The weather is always the wild card,” said Marc Andrukiewicz, director of gas management at Yankee Gas. “We could have another mild winter, like last year, or it could be much colder. Either way, the weather has an effect on demand and, consequently, price.”
Heading into the winter heating season, Andrukiewicz assures customers that Yankee Gas is in the position to meet customer demand this winter. In addition to storage supplies, the company says that it works to buy gas under a mix of contracts designed to deliver the best value.
Yankee Gas is looking to construct a liquefied natural gas facility, which Andrukiewicz said would allow the company to buy gas when prices and demand are typically low, store it, and then use it when prices and demand go higher.
