The Amoco processing plant serving Destin Pipeline is having problems with its liquids handling facility, reducing the handling capacity by 50% as of Monday, according to the Destin bulletin board. Amoco estimates the reduction will last about a month. There is enough remaining capacity to process current daily liquids volumes, according to Destin, but if those volumes increase beyond Amoco's capabilities the pipeline "could be forced to take further action should the quality of the gas not meet market requirements."

Transco is seeking bids through 2 p.m. today for the firm sale to Transco of up to 75,000 MMbtu/d of System Inventory Management gas from May 7 through May 31. The delivery point will be Station 65 in St. Helena Parish, LA. Call Laurie Catlett at (713) 215-4356 or Suzie Heiser at -4626 for information.

Texas Eastern changed the schedule and scope of maintenance on its 24-inch system, originally planned for May 3-7 and May 10-12. Instead of resuming normal pipeline operations May 8-9 as formerly planned, the new schedule calls for restrictions to continue through the weekend. Line work between the Atlanta (TX) and Bald Knob (AR) Compressor Stations is expected to cut receipts by about 27% between the Hope (AR) and Fagus (AR) stations, based on current volumes, Texas Eastern said. The affected segment comprises nearly all of the 24-inch system within Arkansas, a spokesman said. Receipts upstream of Atlanta will not be affected.
