Southern California Gas took the #1 compressor at its North Needles Station off-line Wednesday to repair broken gears and the case on the unit's air starter. The work is causing a loss of 150 MMcf/d of border receipt capacity at Needles until further notice.
Citing urgent work at its Havensville (KS) Compressor Station, ANR said it has reduced Southwest Mainline capacity by 50 MMcf/d (leaving 695 MMcf/d available) from Wednesday through next Monday. Based on current nominations, ANR said it anticipates that the reduction will result in the curtailment of Firm Secondary and IT nominations.
Citing forecasts of warm weather across their systems, all three Duke Energy pipelines (Texas Eastern, Algonquin and East Tennessee) said Wednesday they are not accepting make-up nominations to resolve due-pipe imbalances until further notice. They also said customers should take immediate steps to resolve any due-shipper imbalances.
