While the Gas Bulletin Board (GBB) is a public website, anyone who is a pipeline operator, production facility operator, storage provider, BB allocation agent or a BB shipper must register as a GBB Participant.
Other parties who are transportation facility users or capacity transaction reporting agents are eligible to register for the GBB, but are not required to do so unless they also fall within one of the mandatory registration categories.
Facilities operated by participants must also be registered; while some participants may be exempted from providing data, there are no exemptions from registering facilities.
