Cornerstone Research took a leading role in several natural gas price misreporting investigations. In these matters, Cornerstone Research staff undertook detailed data analysis of multiple types of company and market data to determine the number and characteristics of trades made by the company and to determine whether these trades might have been considered reportable at the time they were made. Such analysis relied heavily on Cornerstone Research’s in-house expertise on natural gas trading and the physical natural gas infrastructure in the United States and Canada. Additionally, Cornerstone Research staff conducted detailed analysis of company, desk, and trader positions to analyze the potential incentives or disincentives to misreport trade prices.
