NOVA said a leak discovered in a flange assembly early Thursday on its North Lateral in eastern Alberta is curtailing up to 500 MMcf/d of upstream production. The line usually flows 1.6-1.7 Bcf/d, a spokesman said. He estimated the leak will require 24-48 hours of repair time, but no schedule has been set.

As previously posted, the Amoco processing plant for gas moving through Destin Pipeline has had its liquid handling capacity reduced to 50% (see Daily GPI, May 5). Thursday Amoco notified Destin that additional problems with the plant's liquid handling facilities had further cut capacity to nearly zero. Although the capacity was a bit higher Friday, Destin informed all production points that free liquid injection into the pipeline must be minimized to maintain current flows. At present there is no need to reduce scheduled volumes, Destin said.

El Paso revised a notice about its Blanco Plant maintenance starting today (see Daily GPI, May 14) to say the outage of the C and D compressor units was extended by one day through the May 20 gas day.

Florida Gas Transmission has extended maintenance at Sabine Pass Plant/Johnson's Bayou, which was scheduled to end today, until further notice.

When it took the Donna Line in South Texas out of service May 1 to make the line "piggable," Tennessee expected the line to resume operations June 9 (see Daily GPI, May 3). But due to Texas Dept. of Transportation work on two roads across Donna during June, Tennessee will be required to modify the existing road crossings, the pipeline said Friday. That work will extend the Donna Line outage, affecting 20 meters, to June 15.

A combination of its Unit 5-C failure and maintenance on the A-Line has rendered PG&E Gas Transmission-Northwest unable to maintain contract pressure to Northwest Pipeline at Spokane, WA. In order to meet confirmed nominations, PG&E GT-NW curtailed the Spokane delivery point effective Friday to 45 MMcf/d until the A-Line has returned to service.
