Citing Florida forecasts of 90-degree weather, Florida Gas Transmission issued an Overage Alert Day for market-area customers Thursday with 15% tolerance for negative daily imbalances.

The Hess-operated Sea Robin Processing Plant resumed processing late Wednesday night after an unexpected shutdown earlier that day (see Daily GPI, June 29), Sea Robin Pipeline said. Pipeline customers were asked to adjust gas flows and nominations as necessary.

Based on its best available information, Southern Natural Gas expects an unscheduled engine outage at White Castle Compressor Station on the west leg upstream of Franklinton Compressor Station in South Louisiana to last until the end of July. Additionally, Southern said, it is in the middle of a scheduled grout project on an additional unit at White Castle Compressor Station. That unit is not scheduled to be available until the end of July. Until repairs are completed on at least one of these units, interruptible capacity in the South Louisiana Supply area on the west leg (upstream of Franklinton Compressor Station) is being reduced by an unspecified amount. This reduction took effect with the evening scheduling cycle for Thursday's gas day.

Southern also announced that based on currently scheduled supply and projected demand, it began allocating/limiting interruptible capacity in Group 167 (Pavo to Occidental Tap), Group 168 (Occidental to Florida Power) and Group 169 (Jacksonville Line on the South Georgia Lateral) effective with Intraday 1 nominations for Thursday's gas day until further notice.
