NOVA restored its 16-inch Josephine Lateral in northwest Alberta to service Saturday evening following a rupture caused by third-party construction. The outage was isolated to a 7-kilometer section of the NPS 16 Josephine Lateral Loop about 30 kilometers north of Saddle Hills Compressor Station, NOVA said. The pipeline changed its daily system imbalance tolerance to -2/+18% due to low linepack Saturday morning.

As of Monday and until further notice, El Paso has an Unauthorized Overpull Penalty in effect due to low linepack. Due to very rocky terrain, the pipeline's preparation for lowering Line 30120 (Beckham County in western Oklahoma) to accommodate highway construction is progressing slowly. Thursday is now the anticipated date when the line will be out of service for four to six hours starting at 8 a.m. CDT, causing the shut-in of four receipt and delivery points. Because of recent volume increases at these points, pro rata allocations may be necessary for the day's business, El Paso said.

Sonat removed Main Pass 77 Friday from a list of receipt points upstream of the Toca (LA) Station subject to an OFO Type 1 since Oct. 1, 1998 due to damage from Hurricane Georges.

ANR said annual maintenance May 1-June 15 on its Southeast Mainline compressor stations will reduce the line's capacity by 100 MMcf/d for the first four weeks and by 75 MMcf/d for the last two weeks. However, no restrictions on customer nominations are expected.
