Effective Thursday, Tennessee will begin accepting nominations for up to 40 MMcf/d of receipts into its system from High Island Offshore System (HIOS) at West Cameron 167. Within a few days Tennessee expects to be able to gradually increase the volumes it receives from HIOS as the accumulated condensates in the pipelines are removed from the system. Parties delivering gas into Tennessee at West Cameron 167 must arrange for gas processing services at the new Grand Chenier gas plant, Tennessee said.

NGPL has extended unplanned maintenance south of Station 303 on the 16-inch diameter Goodrich Lateral in Polk County, TX, through next Monday. The work, which began May 3, previously had been expected to be completed Thursday. Flows are unavailable at the Enbridge/NGPL Goodrich Polk and Gulf South Goodrich interconnects during this outage. The maintenance is to clean the lateral in response to a gas quality issue at the Enbridge receipt point that has been previously posted (see Daily GPI, April 30). After this work is completed, the Gulf South point will be available for delivery pending Gulf South lifting its gas quality restrictions (see Daily GPI, May 7), NGPL said. The availability of the Enbridge point at that time is to be determined, it added.

Questar has scheduled May 15-16 maintenance at Thistle Creek Compressor Station, which will reduce capacity of the ML 104 segment to 350,000 Dth/d. Based on current nominations, this represents a 4% reduction in primary to primary (tier 1) volumes, Questar said.
