Dominion issued what it called an "FTNN Hourly Limit OFO" advisory Thursday, saying it has determined that based upon current and forecasted weather, hourly quantities delivered to customers at several Mid-Atlantic delivery areas 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," the pipeline said. Dominion said it was providing four hours' advance notice that it may issue an OFO requiring customers to limit delivery fluctuations to the designated areas within one hour. The customers on the PL-1 system in the southern portion of Dominion's operating area that are impacted by the OFO until further notice are Baltimore Gas & Electric, Washington Gas Light, Quantico, Virginia Natural Gas, Doswell Meter, Virginia Power and the City of Richmond, VA. Dominion took similar action earlier this week for seven utility customers in New York state (see Daily GPI, Jan. 24). See the bulletin board for further OFO details.
Iroquois declared an OFO Thursday that it said would last through Friday's gas day. Citing forecasted colder weather, Iroquois asked point operators "to adhere to their daily nominated volumes and operate within tariff guidelines. There will be no due unscheduled shipper gas available and flow control will be used if necessary to maintain system integrity."
Gulf South has scheduled pigging maintenance for Jan. 30-Feb. 8 on Index 291 (New Orleans Area Low Pressure Line).

See the bulletin board for a list of production locations that could be affected.
