Due to customers banking more than 300,000 dekatherms on its system over the holiday weekend, Kern River posted a critical notice barring banking Monday morning. The practice persisted, however, with the pipeline projecting the banking amount at 200,000 dekatherms for Tuesday's gas day. Citing the threat to system operations, Kern River looked at actual flows as of 4:15 p.m. MCT Tuesday and assumed a uniform hourly flow for the remainder of the gas day. Based on that analysis, capacity at Kern River meters was reduced to meet the assumed uniform hourly flow in the Intraday 2 nominations cycle. In an update Wednesday, Kern River said linepack remained at a critically high level and that it "will continue to compare scheduled quantities to actual deliveries and will take appropriate action to reduce unauthorized banking."
