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.
