Noting that it has posted several shipper notices in recent weeks indicating that its system is experiencing high line pressure and linepack, Transco said Wednesday it is implementing an Imbalance OFO effective Friday with minimum penalties of $50/Dth. To avoid a penalty shippers must ensure that long imbalances (due-shipper) not exceed 5% or 1,000 Dth, whichever is greater. High utilization of firm services and various maintenance activities have resulted in reduced operating flexibility, Transco said.
Pacific Gas & Electric issued a systemwide Stage 2 low-inventory OFO for Thursday, setting the tolerance for negative daily imbalances at 5%.
Nautilus Pipeline lifted a force majeure Tuesday related to a leak discovered nearly two months ago that required the pipeline to shut in at Ship Shoal 207 (see Daily GPI, Feb. 3). Nominations were being accepted again with no volume restrictions, Nautilus said.
