Business Segments Description


Nicor Gas, a regulated natural gas distribution utility, serves over two million customers in a service territory that encompasses most of the northern third of Illinois, excluding the city of Chicago. The company’s service territory is diverse and its customer base has grown steadily over the years, providing the company with a well-balanced mix of residential, commercial and industrial customers. Residential customers typically account for approximately 45 to 50  percent of natural gas deliveries, while commercial and industrial customers each typically account for about 25 to 30 percent.

Nicor Gas purchases natural gas supplies in the open market by contracting directly with producers and marketers. Pipeline transportation and purchased storage services are regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). When contracted services are temporarily not needed, Nicor Gas may release the services in the secondary market under FERC-mandated capacity release provisions, with proceeds reducing the company’s cost of gas charged to customers.

Peak-use requirements are met through utilization of company-owned storage facilities, pipeline transportation capacity, purchased storage services and other supply sources, arranged by either Nicor Gas or its transportation customers. Nicor Gas has been able to obtain sufficient supplies of natural gas to meet customer requirements. The company believes natural gas supply and pipeline capacity will be sufficiently available to meet market demands in the foreseeable future.

Natural gas supply. Nicor Gas maintains a diversified portfolio of natural gas supply contracts. Supply contracts are diversified by supplier, producing region, quantity and available transportation. Contract pricing is generally tied to published price indices so as to approximate current market prices, although at times the company may fix the price of a portion of its supply portfolio. These supply contracts also generally provide for the payment of fixed demand charges to ensure the availability of supplies on any given day and are typically negotiated annually.

The company also purchases gas supplies on the spot market to fulfill its supply requirements or to take advantage of favorable short-term pricing. Spot gas purchases accounted for about one-half of the company’s total gas purchases in the last three years.

As noted previously, transportation customers purchase their own gas supplies. About one-half of the gas that the company delivers is purchased by transportation customers directly from producers and marketers rather than from the company.

Pipeline transportation. Nicor Gas is directly connected to eight interstate pipelines, providing access to most of the major natural gas producing regions in North America. The company’s primary transportation contracts are with Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America (NGPL), Northern Natural Gas Company (NNG), Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (TGPL), Midwestern Gas Transmission Company (MGT)  and ANR Pipeline (ANR). In 2003, new transportation contracts with NGPL, TGPL and MGT became effective, with terms generally into 2006. The contract with NNG will expire in 2004 and Nicor Gas is negotiating a renewal of this agreement. The contract with ANR will also expire in 2004 and Nicor Gas expects to negotiate a renewal. In 2002, Nicor Gas also began receiving service under a 10-year transportation agreement with Horizon Pipeline, a 50/50 joint venture between Nicor and NGPL.


Tropical Shipping is one of the largest containerized cargo carriers in the Bahamas and Caribbean, a region characterized by modest market growth and intense competition. The company is a major carrier of exports from the east coast of the United States and Canada to the Caribbean region. The company’s shipments consist primarily of southbound cargo such as food, building materials and other necessities for developers, manufacturers and residents in the Caribbean, as well as tourist-related shipments intended for use in hotels and resorts, and on cruise ships. The balance of Tropical Shipping’s cargo consists of northbound shipments of apparel and agricultural products, and interisland shipments. The company also provides additional related services including inland transportation and cargo insurance. Tropical Shipping’s financial results can be significantly affected by general economic conditions in the United States, the Caribbean region and Canada.
