Transportation Notes

Wyoming Interstate Co. reported completion of repairs late Thursday afternoon to a segment west of Cheyenne Station where a rupture had occurred on the previous Saturday (see Daily GPI, Nov. 14) and said it was fully available for service again.

Pacific Gas & Electric let only one day (Friday) go by since Wednesday without a systemwide Stage 2 high-inventory OFO before declaring a new one for Saturday. Penalties were set once again at $1/Dth for exceeding a 5% tolerance on positive daily imbalances.

Sea Robin Pipeline reported being notified that the Hess-operated Sea Robin Processing Plant had resumed processing operations Thursday evening after going down Nov. 9 due to equipment problems. The plant continued to dehydrate gas during the outage.

One of the two injection units at its Washington Ranch Storage Facility experienced a mechanical failure, El Paso said, and due to unavailability of parts, the unit will be out of service for at least two weeks. As a precautionary measure, the other unit was been taken out of service for a thorough inspection to determine its suitability for operation. "It is anticipated that one unit will be available for injection" on or before this coming Wednesday, El Paso said, but until that time, no injection capacity exists. The storage facility has full withdrawal capability. The pipeline said its operational flexibility to receive supplies in excess of takes will be extremely limited, and there is an increased probability that a high-linepack Strained Operating Condition will be required. It "strongly encouraged" shippers to ensure that their receipts and deliveries are balanced.

Northwest said it excavated and performed an evaluation of an anomaly near the Delores delivery point. The affected segment was repaired and returned to service Thursday evening, allowing a Declared Deficiency Period to end and the south-flow design capacity at Pleasant View Compressor Station to be restored to 352,446 Dth/d.

NGPL said it had repaired a leak on the OE #1 line between Compressor Stations 154 and 184 in Beckham County, OK (see Daily GPI, Nov. 16), making the Superior-Beckham receipt point available again Friday.
