Transportation Notes

Five groups on the Sonat system (Birmingham Group, South Main Zone 2, Atlanta Group, South Main Zone 3 and East of Wrens) became subject to an OFO Type 3 Monday.

Tennessee advised shippers late Friday evening that the Yscloskey (LA) Processing Plant located at Main Line Valve 529 on the 500 Line in South Louisiana had shut down due to a mechanical failure. This will cause a higher than normal Btu content for all gas flowing downstream of MLV 529, Tennessee said. However, operator Dynegy said some Yscloskey processing had resumed Sunday morning and that it expected to have the plant at 100% operation again today.

Florida Gas Transmission has again extended the anticipated completion date of hydrostatic testing on two sections of its 22-inch mainline immediately downstream of Station 4 (Matagorda County, TX) in Zone 1. The work, which began Oct. 20 (see Daily GPI, Sept. 27, 2000) and originally was scheduled to conclude Nov. 30 before the deadline was postponed twice, now is expected to end Feb. 1, FGT said Monday.
