FERC order 636

A Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) order issued in 1992 to restructure the US gas pipeline industry. It relaxed service requirements on pipeline firms and gave customers greater flexibility as to whom they could buy from by separating gas sales from transportation. This ‘unbundling’ involved the extension of transportation to include storage and allowed end-users, with firm transport contracts, to sell unused capacity. FERC has issued three orders related to FERC order 636: numbers 636-A, 636-B, and 636-C.
