Florida Gas Transmission said it must excavate its mainline just upstream of Galveston Bay in Texas to conduct a thorough examination. FGT was making preparations for the excavation during Wednesday's gas day but continued to schedule up to 150,000 MMBtu/d through Station 6; that is half of the station's normal capacity due to an unscheduled upstream pipe examination that began Tuesday (see Daily GPI, Jan. 9). FGT plans to begin the excavation and thorough examination Thursday, saying the work may take two days. For the gas days of Thursday and Friday, zero gas will be scheduled into the system upstream (west) of Galveston Bay. Volumes will be scheduled as normal downstream (east) of Galveston Bay. NGPL Jefferson is one of the first major interconnects just to the east of Galveston Bay that will be scheduled as normal Thursday and Friday, FGT said. It will resume scheduling normal capacity of up to 300,000 MMBtu/d through Station 6 on those days.
Sufficient repairs have been made to a Dearmanville Compressor Station unit (see Daily GPI, Jan. 10) to allow it to return to service, Southern Natural Gas said Wednesday. Additional maintenance will be performed on the compressor when weather conditions moderate later this week, the pipeline added, but it does not expect this work to have any impacts to service.
