Gas Alberta Inc. provides a wide range of value-added programs and services to its customers that have become an integral part of our customers' operations.

  • Gas Delivery Service. Gas Alberta works closely with the major gas transmission companies in the province to ensure reliable delivery of natural gas supplies to our customers. The Company actively manages its supply sources and purchases directly from gas suppliers to provide the best gas rates to its customers.

    Pipeline Balancing. Gas measurement data from our customers’ meter stations located throughout Alberta is electronically transmitted to Gas Alberta on a daily basis. Our integrated gas management system processes this data and assists staff in balancing deliveries and receipts on all pipelines, as well as nominating daily supplies.

    Measurement and Billing. We reconcile all gas measurement readings on a monthly basis in order to generate accurate customer invoices. We closely monitor all customer receivables to ensure we are able to make timely payments to our gas suppliers and maintain our excellent credit rating. Our online customer portal provides our customers with access to their daily measurement data and billing information.

  • Odorant Program. Gas Alberta and the Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops formed Alberta Odorant Services (AOS) to safely and reliably deliver natural gas odorant to customer meter stations. Cost-sharing for the odorant program includes the odorant product, delivery costs and administration.

    AMR Equipment. Installation of automated meter reading (AMR) equipment at our customers’ meter stations enables the electronic transmission of metering data to Gas Alberta. This AMR equipment has been upgraded over time to improve its reliability and effectiveness.

    Emergency Supplies. We coordinate emergency supplies for our customers whenever transmission pipeline outages affect supply to their distribution systems. This emergency supply may be in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG).

    Pipeline Funding Program. Gas Alberta administers a Pipeline Funding Program that is designed to assist customers in financing the purchase or replacement of transmission pipelines in their franchise areas that have been earmarked for abandonment.

Profits generated by this marketing initiative help offset Gas Alberta Inc.’s annual general and administrative expenses.
