Summary:
The U.S. natural gas distribution industry spends $50-$60 billion each year to buy gas and deliver it to their customers and to expand and renew the distribution piping system. Almost three-quarters of these expenditures are paid to suppliers and transporters who deliver gas at the city gate. The way in which the balance is spent—almost $15 billion in 2000—is the subject of this study. Data was collected from interviews with 40 companies representing almost 64% of the gas customers in the U.S. Data from other industry and government sources was also used. The “fully loaded” cost of an activity was determined and the sample group data were extrapolated to the entire gas distribution industry. Data are grouped for a variety of maintenance, installation, and operational activities and by company classifications, based on customer density (customers per mile of main) and proportion of main under paving. Each activity area includes a description of the activity, key variables considered in establishing costs, pie charts and summary tables, and comments on assumptions and data limitations. The wealth of data presented in the report can enable local distribution companies to relate their costs and activities against similar companies and national averages, and assist the industry in determining the market for and benefits of proposed research, development, and commercialization (RD&C) efforts. An accompanying Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet shows the extent of the data coverage. The spreadsheet does not include actual company data, as the data is proprietary information.
