Northwest began running a 96-hour test on the Snohomish (WA)
Compressor Station's Unit No. 1 Friday. The test, along with warmer
weather and reduced weekend damand, did not allow Northwest to
receive the full 1,097,000 dekatherms of total supply at the
Sumas/Sipi throughput point. The pipeline capped Sumas/Sipi volumes
at 1,000,000 dekatherms Sunday and raised that to 1,050,000
dekatherms for Monday's gas day. No constraint is scheduled today
as the work was expected to end Monday evening.
KN notified shippers Monday of an unexpected compressor outage
at its PEPL Grant Co. #1 point with Panhandle Eastern. This is
limiting capacity to 30,000 MMbtu/d, which is below the level of
Primary Firm sold at the point, KN said. It expects no Secondary
Firm or interruptible gas to be scheduled during the outage, which
is expected to continue through June 10.
As part of Phase I in an expansion project, operators of Jackson
Prairie Storage have requested a May 26-28 outage for the entire
facility, according to the Northwest Pipeline bulletin board. There
will be zero flow of physical gas during all three days, but
nominations will be accepted as long as the combined injections and
withdrawals net to zero. Phase II will entail a five-day shut
scheduled for Sept. 7-11.
