Transportation Notes

Tennessee Gas Pipeline warned that it may have to issue an operational flow order due to limited operational flexibility in the Texas (Zone 0) area. the pipeline said it does not have the ability to absorb imbalances caused by overdeliveries into the system and/or undertakes from the system with meters located in Zone 0. It requested that all LMSMA, LMSPL, and LMSPA contracts (including SA contracts acting as balancing parties) in Zone 0 match physical flow with scheduled quantities. "Tennessee requires your compliance with this notice to avoid the necessity of issuing an Operational Flow Order in accordance with the applicable tariff provisions," the company said.

Tennessee Gas also continued to post a variety of flow restrictions. At Station 17 it anticipated restricting 7% of supply to market secondary out of the path nominations. At the Niagara River Meter it anticipated restricting 55% of supply to market secondary out of the path nominations. And at the Heidelberg, MS, meter it anticipated restricting 16% of the same category of transportation capacity.

NGPL said it anticipates high hourly takes in the market delivery zone on Friday based on forecasted warmer temperatures. It said that shippers and point operators must limit their hourly takes at all delivery points in the market delivery zone. The pipeline said that should its ability to provide hourly flexibility continue to decrease significantly, it may be required to issue an operational flow order imposing further restrictions on hourly takes including invoking flow control. At each point in the market delivery zone, the hourly rights for each shipper will be limited to 6.25% of that shipper's aggregate confirmed point nomination. For more details, see the NGPL bulletin.

Florida Gas declared an overage alert day with a 15% tolerance due to continued mid 90-degree temperatures.

Questar informed shippers that deliveries to TransColorado at Greasewood are being accepted up to 50,000 Dth/d.
