Tennessee has rescheduled replacement of Main Line Valve 528 for March 19-24; it previously had been set for a two-day duration sometime next week. Tennessee also posted this schedule for spring storage facility shut-in tests: Harrison, March 26-April 3; Bear Creek, April 10-16; Hebron and Ellisburg, April 16-23; and Colden, during April (to be determined). The pipeline does not anticipate associated restrictions, but said that if operational conditions change during the shut-ins, it may need to restrict interruptible storage services. "Additionally, during the shut-in tests Tennessee will have limited operational flexibility to absorb imbalances, so customers should strive to keep all contracts in balance," it added.
Virtually all pipelines have reminded customers recently that with the change to Daylight Saving Time set for 2 a.m. local time Sunday, the March 10 gas day will be only 23 hours long and they should schedule gas accordingly.
Iroquois has scheduled a 2-4 p.m EDT conference call next Thursday to discuss gas quality and interchangeability issues on its system. See the bulletin board for details.
