Transportation services: buying from a transportation gas marketer

Commercial customers in some rate classes have a choice: you can buy your natural gas from FortisBC or you can fully negotiate the terms and conditions of your gas supply contract with a gas marketer who will purchase the natural gas commodity on your behalf.

The gas marketer delivers the natural gas to FortisBC and we use our distribution system to deliver the natural gas to your business.
