Southern California Gas declared a high-linepack OFO for Sunday but allowed it to expire Monday.
Sea Robin Pipeline reported being informed by the Hess Corp.-operated Sea Robin Gas Plant that an estimated 14-day plant outage for maintenance and repair of valves and fittings will begin Thursday. No dehydration or other services will be available during the first seven to 10 days of the work, but dehydration services will resume after that point and be available for the remainder of the outage, the pipeline said. It added that some producers have said they will begin shutting in flows on Wednesday evening. "Should the total system flow be reduced to a level that the plant is no longer able to process or dehydrate, then the plant will shut in at that time," Sea Robin Pipeline said. "Once the plant shuts in, there will be very little, if any, opportunity to make up imbalances for the remainder of the month." It also said it has contacted downstream delivery point operators to see if they will be accepting nondehydrated gas during this outage, and to day none have agreed to do so. "If the delivery pipes do not agree to accept this gas, Sea Robin will require producers to shut in their production," the pipeline said.
