Electric Reliability Council of Texas Inc. Files Claim against GDF SUEZ Energy North America, Inc

Two trading firms active in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas Inc. market filed a complaint against GDF SUEZ Energy North America Inc., claiming they lost millions of dollars because GDF SUEZ intentionally withheld power from its generating resources to drive up real-time prices. In their complaint filed April 22 in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, trading firms Aspire Commodities LP and Raiden Commodities LP allege that the GDF Suez SA subsidiary intentionally withheld generation during times of tight power supply then dumped its electricity at "the artificially high price it created to make excessive, artificial profits not supported by genuine supply and demand." Seeking a jury trial and unspecified compensation for damages for GDF SUEZ's alleged violation of the Commodities Exchange Act, the complaint maintains that GDF SUEZ's intentional withholding also was done to manipulate the price of financial forward contracts traded on commodity exchanges, "allowing GDF SUEZ to uniquely predict where the commodities markets will go on days of its intentional withholding, and allowing it a unique profit opportunity not available to the public." One economic withholding scheme pulled by GDF SUEZ, the lawsuit claims, involves the company shifting its offer curve upward above ERCOT's existing locational marginal price, or LMP, during times of tight supply and when the LMP exceeded its marginal costs.
