Transportation Notes

ANR said late Friday it had returned the 22-inch diameter line between Main Line Valves 82 and 83 in Cass County, MI to service. The 24-inch diameter line in the same segment remains isolated until further notice while ANR continues inspection and repairs on it due to a force majeure event arising from third-party damage (see Daily GPI, Dec. 21). Restoring service on the 22-inch line allowed ANR to raise the capacity of Bridgman East CFTP to 1,091 MMcf/d; with both lines out the capacity had been limited to 650 MMcf/d. However, based on current nominations, the pipeline still anticipates that the larger capacity may result in curtailment of nominations associated with Firm Secondary and IT services through Bridgman East CFTP.

Northwest completed anomaly repairs near the Pleasant View Compressor Station and returned the line to normal operating pressure, allowing it to end a Declared Deficiency Period (see Daily GPI, Dec. 21) and restore Pleasant View to south-flow design capacity of 352,446 Dth/d effective with the Timely nominations cycle for Sunday's gas day.

Southern Natural Gas said Sunday it had identified a need for unscheduled maintenance on one of three compressor units at its Muldon (MS) Storage Field. In an update Tuesday, Southern said repairs were under way and based on its best available information, the unit is expected to return to service sometime Thursday. The pipeline did not provide an estimate of impact on injection or withdrawal capability.

The Hess-operated Sea Robin Processing Plant was shut down unexpectedly Monday, Sea Robin Pipeline said in a bulletin board posting. The plant will continue to dehydrate gas during the unplanned outage. The pipeline urged shippers to call downstream delivery point operators to see if they will be accepting gas from Sea Robin while the plant is down.
