TransCanada yesterday was continuing to evaluate an electronic
failure on its 36-inch Western Alberta System. A tool used during
an in-line inspection run failed. Arrival of a de-watering pig at
the Knight compressor station has been delayed until about noon
mountain time today. Work on the system between the Miekle River
and Knight compressor station in northwestern Alberta began May 31,
impacting receipt capacity by about 1 Bcf/d. The system should be
up to regular flows again some time by Saturday, a spokesman said.
The outage had been scheduled to end June 9.
Kern River said some problems with the Rapids II Version 3.20
release have been discovered that warrant an update to the release.
Users are advised to download and install an executable file as
soon as possible since one of the problems affects external
communications to the database and results in a reduction in system
performance. Instructions are available on the Kern bulletin board.
Panhandle Eastern said it will take six days beginning Monday to
install on-stream cleaning facilities on the Edgerton 100 line
affecting 100 MMcf/d of capacity.
Westcoast Energy's McMahon plant went back on line yesterday
after shutting earlier Thursday for electrical problems.
Westcoast's Fort Nelson plant in British Columbia is shut down,
affecting 80 to 100 MMcf/d until June 28.
