The Amoco processing plant serving Destin Pipeline is having
problems with its liquids handling facility, reducing the handling
capacity by 50% as of Monday, according to the Destin bulletin
board. Amoco estimates the reduction will last about a month. There
is enough remaining capacity to process current daily liquids
volumes, according to Destin, but if those volumes increase beyond
Amoco's capabilities the pipeline "could be forced to take further
action should the quality of the gas not meet market requirements."
Transco is seeking bids through 2 p.m. today for the firm sale
to Transco of up to 75,000 MMbtu/d of System Inventory Management
gas from May 7 through May 31. The delivery point will be Station
65 in St. Helena Parish, LA. Call Laurie Catlett at (713) 215-4356
or Suzie Heiser at -4626 for information.
Texas Eastern changed the schedule and scope of maintenance on
its 24-inch system, originally planned for May 3-7 and May 10-12.
Instead of resuming normal pipeline operations May 8-9 as formerly
planned, the new schedule calls for restrictions to continue
through the weekend. Line work between the Atlanta (TX) and Bald
Knob (AR) Compressor Stations is expected to cut receipts by about
27% between the Hope (AR) and Fagus (AR) stations, based on current
volumes, Texas Eastern said. The affected segment comprises nearly
all of the 24-inch system within Arkansas, a spokesman said.
Receipts upstream of Atlanta will not be affected.
