Your expectations: Participation in market movements, spread the risks, forward planning
- Would you like to take advantage of the opportunities of market-linked pricing?
- Do you value transparent pricing?
Our promise to deliver: Transparent pricing on liquid trading markets, simple processing
We work out a commodity charge for you in an individually defined period (reference period) in a transparent manner. The commodity charge is derived from the published price quotations for gas products. You can choose from various publications. At the end of the reference period we calculate the average from all the price quotations, and this becomes the commodity charge for your natural gas deliveries.
Once the price has been determined, we deliver according to your needs in the relevant price applicability period. We can also agree a time lag between the reference period and the price applicability period.
You can choose the length of the three phases “Reference period – time lag – price applicability period” from a broad range at the beginning of the contract (e.g. 6 months – 1 month – 3 months). You then purchase the natural gas at the commodity charge determined throughout the price applicability period. The price applicability can be between one day and one calendar year.
The shorter the price applicability period, the more you will participate in short-term market movements.
You must only make an initial purchase decision when determining the Gas Indexed Commodity Charge.
Price Fixing Option in the Percentage Model
You can change the composition of the commodity charge for the actual quantity purchased for a selected period; this is done by replacing a proportion of the Gas Indexed Commodity Charge with a Fixed Commodity Charge. For example, if you expect increasing market prices. As soon as the reference period of the Gas Indexed Commodity Charge has started, it is no longer possible to execute the Price Fixing Option.
Price Fixing Option in the Block Model
You have the option of determining the commodity charge for flat sub-quantities with 100% ToP (take-or-pay) in advance for a selected period at a Fixed Commodity Charge. For example, if you expect increasing market prices. As soon as the reference period of the Gas Indexed Commodity Charge has started, it is no longer possible to execute the Price Fixing Option.
Fix your commodity charge at the right moment – The Index Stop Option in combination a long reference period
With the help of the Index Stop Option, you can stop the pricing of the Gas Indexed Commodity Charge at any time during a longer reference period and replace it with a Fixed Commodity Charge. Stepping on the price brake makes sense if you are expecting prices to rise in the future. That way, you can secure or increase your planned sales margins. The sooner you use this option, the sooner you can calculate your natural gas purchase price with greater accuracy. We guarantee this price for a price applicability period (e.g. 12 months).
Thanks to the long reference period and associated high level of risk diversification, good average prices and commodity charges can be achieved. If you use the Index Stop Option at the right moment, you even have the opportunity to fix your commodity charge below the average market level.
In order to keep an eye on price development, you can simply use the Price-alert Function in the new WINGAS customer portal. Alternatively, for even greater convenience, when you conclude a contract, you can agree that WINGAS will apply the Index Stop Option for you via Target Price Monitoring as soon as your defined price limit is reached.
