Transportation Notes

Florida Gas Transmission did not extend an Overage Alert Day notice for its market area beyond Friday.

Northern Natural Gas ended Monday a System Underrun Limitation for all market area zones that had been in effect Saturday and Sunday.

Due to temperatures moderating in its service territory and the resultant rise in storage inventories, Texas Eastern said Monday afternoon it is canceling all customer-specific storage OFOs effective immediately.

Citing "significant excess receipts" on its 100 Leg in Zone 0, Tennessee said it was required to force balance in that pool effective with the Evening Cycle for Monday's gas day. It added that high linepack resulting from customers' overdeliveries and undertakes on the 100 Leg could jeopardize the system's operational integrity. If appropriate balancing actions are not taken, Tennessee may be required to adjust receipts or deliveries as necessary, or issue an OFO.

Effective Sunday (March 23) until further notice, Kern River has reduced operational capacity at the Elberta, Fillmore and Veyo Compressor Stations by 15,000 Dth/d.

ANR will conduct pipe maintenance Wednesday through April 9 near its Alden Compressor Station in Kansas, cutting total Southwest Mainline capacity by 53 MMcf/d (leaving 634 MMcf/d available). Based on current nominations, ANR said Monday, the reduction may result in curtailment of IT and Firm Secondary nominations.

NOVA changed its daily imbalance tolerance range to 0/-4 Sunday but reverted to the normal +4/-4 Monday.

El Paso shut in Line 2000 between Guadalupe and Cornudas Stations Monday for repairs that will last through April 4 and reduce South Mainline capacity by 230 MMcf/d. "Considering the volumes of gas currently being scheduled through this portion of the pipeline, the outage should have no affect on markets," El Paso said.
