Citing "very cold weather projections in the Pacific Northwest over the next few days and record low throughput volumes across the Canadian border," Northwest declared a Stage II (8%) Overrun Entitlement for Receiving Parties on the Wenatchee Lateral and a Stage III Overrun Entitlement (13%) for all other Receiving Parties located north of the Kemmerer (WY) Compressor Station for the gas days of Wednesday and Thursday. Northwest said its tariff provides that an Overrun Entitlement will subject a receiving party to penalties if the party's takes of gas exceed its confirmed nominations by more than the allowed threshold percentage. Northwest said it "encourages customers to secure adequate supplies from Canadian supply sources during this cold period."
