Gas storage optimization

Would you also like to make your gas storage facility more profitable? Our gas storage modelling software makes this possible. The KYOS models KyStore and KySwing provide the basis for the presentation. The KyStore model supports traders and portfolio managers in natural gas markets. The gas storage optimization software raises revenues from gas storage trading operations. In addition, it provides accurate valuations and reduces risk with adequate hedge recommendations. Moreover, the model uses advanced stochastics including Least Squares Monte Carlo techniques to capture the full optionality in gas storage facilities.

Secondly, KyStore is complemented by KySwing. The KySwing model helps to generate most income from gas contracts by optimizing the contract flexibility. Swing options are typical components of gas contracts, which offer the opportunity to vary the contracted volume under a number of restrictions. Sometimes the market also refers to these contracts as Take-or-Pay (ToP), interruptible or variable load contracts. You can reduce the risk on future income however by forward hedging. The model gives you recommendations for your hedging – it applies advanced stochastics to find the optimal exercise.
