NGI Natural Gas Price Indexes
IPI began publishing the industry's first natural gas price survey report in 1983
when natural gas first began to trade competitively. The voluntary survey and
NGI's Price Methodology has evolved over the years
from a simple weekly range of prices in the five major production areas to the
current reporting of daily, weekly and monthly (bidweek) price ranges, averages,
volumes and number of deals at nearly 100 locations across the United States and
IPI operates under the journalism code of ethics, which requires that the personnel
creating and compiling the content of our publications and management have no financial
interest in the companies on which they report. IPI also warrants that its editorial
and price survey employees and management do not trade in the natural gas commodity
market, nor in any paper market relating to the natural gas commodity market. Also,
as journalists, IPI employees strive to maintain the highest standards of truth,
accuracy, fairness and impartiality. This means double-checking facts, correcting
errors as soon as possible, and striving to tell all sides of a story.
