The article reveals that the British Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (Ofgem) has approved the charging methodology developed by Xoserve, the agency set up by National Grid, which invoices shippers for use of the gas transportation system and manages the change of supplier process. As part of the recent gas distribution price control review, the funding arrangements for Xoserve have been changed. Its services are now classified as either core, and funded through the price control, or as a user-pays service, funded by the service user.
