Getting Started

Why should my company want to do business with Sabine Hub Services?

In 1989 the Henry Hub was selected as the official delivery mechanism for the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) natural gas futures contract. The Hub provides access to more than a dozen interstate and intrastate pipeline interconnects (i.e., Texas Gas, Columbia Gulf, Bridgeline Holdings, Trunkline, Sea Robin, and Gulf South). If you're looking for liquidity, you're at the right place. Sabine Hub Services has expanded on this advantage to become the industry leader in hub management in North America by developing a series of value added services that help our customers meet their gas marketing needs.

What does the term IHT (Intra-Hub TransfersSM) mean?

IHT is a service mark created by Sabine Hub Services. It is a non-jurisdictional accounting service used to track multiple title transfers of natural gas packages at a market center. The IHT service facilitates the liquidity of natural gas transfers by insuring that each party in a transfer agrees to the amount and timing of the transfer. If there is a discrepancy, Sabine Hub Services will work with the parties to resolve the problem.
