Procurement - Natural Gas
Southern Company Services acts as agent in the procurement of natural gas, pipeline transportation services and natural gas storage services for Alabama Power Company, Georgia Power Company, Gulf Power Company, Mississippi Power Company and Southern Power Company.
Southern Company Services (SCS) purchases gas supply on a spot and contract basis from a variety of supply locations, including Gulf of Mexico production, on-shore mid-continent production and LNG, ensuring a diverse supply mix both currently and in the future. Additionally, SCS has contracted for firm transportation on several different gas pipelines under long term service agreements, ensuring Southern Company's ability to deliver gas supply to its electric generation facilities.
Our current procurement policy is to secure natural gas of acceptable quality and quantity at the lowest evaluated cost. To perform this responsibility, we solicit requests for proposals on a competitive bid basis. By doing so, we provide opportunities for all reputable suppliers to participate in the fuel program. In addition, Southern Company Services accepts unsolicited bids at any time. They may be submitted to the gas procurement department by fax (205-257-6176).
