Transportation Notes

Florida Gas Transmission issued an Overage Alert Day notice Monday for customers in its market area. The notice carried a 20% tolerance for negative daily imbalances.

Pacific Gas & Electric did not extend a high-inventory OFO beyond Saturday. Southern California Gas kept Saturday's high-linepack OFO in place through Sunday before lifting it Monday.

Kern River said Monday that despite a Sunday notice regarding high linepack, banking gas on its system "continues to be a serious problem. Many operators continue to leave gas on the system, and it is imperative that operators take delivery of their scheduled quantities." The pipeline issued a Critical Notice Monday morning saying shippers to whom Kern River owes an imbalance must arrange by Wednesday to draft those owed quantities. However, it revised the notice an hour later to say such shippers will be contacted by their Marketing & Customer Services representative to arrange payback. "Additionally, if you are a shipper who made arrangements for this past weekend, and did not comply with such arrangements, it is imperative that you adjust nominations and confirmations to comply with your arrangement by the close of business today [Monday]," Kern River said.

Effective last Saturday through at least Tuesday, Transwestern is not scheduling any volumes at the Duke Energy/Wt-1 and Duke Zia I/C receipt points due to high water content. Transwestern said it is working with Duke to resolve the problem.

Pecos River Station battery maintenance will require downtime that was scheduled to begin late Monday and end by late afternoon Tuesday, El Paso said. The work will cut capacity through Pecos River by 50 MMcf/d. As a result, Washington Ranch storage facility maintenance that had been set for Tuesday and Wednesday was postponed one day. A portion of the Washington Ranch storage wells will be shut in for treatment Wednesday and Thursday, limiting injection and withdrawal capability to 30 MMcf/d. "While this maintenance is being performed, [El Paso] will lose a large degree of operational flexibility, making it critical that all parties scheduling gas on our pipeline manage their volumes carefully to balance receipts and deliveries daily," El Paso said. The pipeline also noted that Keystone Station's 1B compressor is down for mechanical inspection Monday through Thursday this week, reducing the capacity from Keystone to Waha by 60 MMcf/d.
