CIG declared a Strained Operating Condition that took effect Wednesday until further notice. "In anticipation of the cold weather forecast to affect our market region combined with high firm transportation load factors, CIG is concerned that its ability to absorb imbalances caused by mismatches between scheduled receipts and deliveries and to accept imbalance payback nominations will be very limited," the pipeline said, adding that it may implement performance caps at locations not operating at scheduled flow rates. In addition, high demand for authorized overrun storage withdrawals may require CIG to allocate capacity among requesting shippers, it said.
Due to projections of extended cold weather in the Pacific Northwest and low scheduled volumes of Canadian exports at Sumas, Northwest said Wednesday it was extending indefinitely the two Overrun Entitlements that it had previously declared for the gas days of Wednesday and Thursday only (see Daily GPI, Nov. 28).
