Natural Gas Actualization Simplified!

What is CORTEX?

CORTEX is a cloud based application, with a user friendly dashboard, developed to improve automation and reduce manual touch points for natural gas pipeline actualizations into ETRM systems. For most organizations dependent upon complex movements around physical gas, manual actualizations are often time consuming and a contributing factor for daily PnL, Positions and monthly settlements to be incorrect requiring additional manpower troubleshooting. The need was identified to ultimately improve the capture of Natural Gas Actual Quantities and to automate the population into the ETRM system and exactly match the EBB on a T+1 basis. CORTEX provides this solution. It also ensures high risk processes which rely on this data, such as Credit, PnL/Positions and Settlements, to be correct. CORTEX enforces A.C.E. (Accountability Controls Efficiency) which rectifies any issues with timely and accurate reporting of actualizations that today’s organizations may suffer.

Your data is of the utmost importance, so security is a must. CORTEX uses strong encryption at rest and in motion to achieve that protection.


All CORTEX actions are logged to ensure compliance with appropriate regulations.


In contrast to most other vendors, there is no long term contractual license fee. Instead, subscription is either monthly or per transaction based.


The CORTEX user-friendly dashboard was designed to make troubleshooting of actualizations easy. This allows the incumbent to focus on more value add activities for the business.


Competitive solutions that push data to the EBB, can often result in the WHOLE batch rejection by the EBB, due to fuel rounding. This can create operational losses. CORTEX does not have these problems!
