Transportation Notes

Florida Gas Transmission canceled an Overage Alert Day notice after it had been in effect for Wednesday only (see Daily GPI, Jan. 11).

Sonat continued to hold off Thursday on plans to shut in out-of-spec gas upstream of processing facilities in Toca, LA (see Daily GPI, Jan. 11). The Western-operated plant at Toca did recommence processing operations Wednesday based on sufficient volumes being submitted to the plant, Sonat said. However, a mechanical problem arose when the Toca II plant was being tested for start-up; thus it is not in operation at this time, but repairs are expected to be completed Saturday. Meanwhile, Western's plant is at capacity until Toca II can resume operations. "This should help the quality of the Toca gas stream since a smaller volume of gas is now being routed through Southern's emergency operations facilities," Sonat said. Provided that all gas upstream of Toca is being processed starting Sunday, the pipeline added, it will continue to postpone shut-in plans.
