Wholesale gas prices have jumped after British Gas owner Centrica said it had been forced to shut a major storage facility for the winter.

Our Head of Energy, James Baker, comments:

“The ongoing gas storage issues at the Rough Facility really come as a blow to the UK Energy Industry.

Many of our existing clients were able to take advantage of some superb gas prices during Q4 2015 and certainly throughout the start of 2016, however, the recent wholesale gas price-hikes strengthen the case for Customers to consider fixing their rates for longer terms of contract. Any further delays to the Rough Facility being fully Operational during Spring 2017 could see further price increases and it would be interesting to see how Suppliers would react to this potential setback.

Our dedicated Account Managers are on hand to help here and are able to assist with advice regarding competitive long-term gas pricing for your business.”
