Citing limited operational flexibility and continuing mild market-area weather, Tennessee said Friday an OFO Action Alert would become effective Sunday for all Balancing Parties (including LMS-PA, SA contracts acting as balancing parties, LMS-MA and LMS-PL balancing parties). The positive imbalance tolerance was set at 2% of scheduled quantities or 500 Dth, whichever is greater. In addition, Tennessee lifted Friday a force majeure declaration made Sept. 23, 2008 for three Grand Isle meters on its 524C 400, 500 and 700 lines offshore Louisiana. The force majeure remains in effect for three other meters on the 523A-100, 524C-400 and 524C-600 lines, the pipeline added. Tennessee also said Friday it had completed emergent repairs on two D Building compressor motors at Compressor Station 54 in Greenville, MS (see Daily GPI, April 13) and the station has resumed normal operations.
A mechanical failure at Kastler Compressor Station caused injection capacity at its Clay Basin storage facility to be reduced to 300,000 Dth/d effective with Cycle 2 nominations for Friday's gas day, Questar said.
Wyoming Interstate Co., which had previously said it expected to complete repairs Saturday to a unit at Douglas Compressor Station and restore Medicine Bow Lateral capacity from 1,120 MMcf/d to 1,520 MMcf/d for Sunday's gas day (see Daily GPI, May 1), amended that announcement late Thursday afternoon and said additional work on the unit was necessary, extending the anticipated completion date to Wednesday of this week.
El Paso said Friday it was shutting in immediately the Yucca Butte receipt point in the Waha Pooling Area due to gas quality issues. All nominated quantities at this location are being scheduled to zero until the gas quality issue is resolved, El Paso said.
ANR reported initiating service Friday at a new receipt point into its Southeast Mainline. The Midcontinent Express point in Richland Parish, LA, has design capacity of 250 MMcf/d.
