Transportation Notes

Tennessee said it has partially restored service at Compressor Station 25 in Cleveland, TX, where it declared a force majeure event in late November due to equipment failure (see Daily GPI, Dec. 1, 2005). However, due to the unavailability of certain parts, three units still remain out of service, it added in a Friday notice. Each unit is targeted to be back in service as follows: one by late January, a second by mid-April and the third by early May. Tennessee had periodically been restricting about 15% of station capacity since the equipment failure, but said Friday that based on current throughput, it does not anticipate any further curtailments. However, the pipeline said, if throughput rises, it estimates that about 5% of Station 25 volumes would be restricted.

Gulf South revised its schedule for pigging maintenance on its 12-inch diameter Index 131 from Lafayette to Weeks Island in South Louisiana. The work, which began last Wednesday, was being completed Friday but would be resumed Monday through Thursday of this week, the pipeline said. The original schedule had called for Jan. 18-21 pigging (see Daily GPI, Jan. 13).
