Dominion said it has determined, based upon current and forecasted weather, that hourly quantities delivered to customers at seven delivery areas in New York (Corning Natural Gas, New York State Electric & Gas, Rochester Gas & Electric, Niagara Mohawk, Niagara Mohawk East Gate, Fillmore Gas and National Fuel Gas Distribution) may exceed what it can deliver without jeopardizing its ability to provide firm services to other customers. Each affected customer "will take whatever action it may deem appropriate, including notification of IT shippers" at affected delivery points, Dominion said. The pipeline said Tuesday it was providing four hours of advance notice that it may issue an OFO that would require customers to limit delivery fluctuations to the areas within one hour. See the bulletin board for other information on the potential OFO.
