Northwest will hold a 1:30-3 p.m. MDT conference call for all customers Tuesday to discuss options that would allow the pipeline to move approximately 1 Bcf of balancing gas from Clay Basin storage to Jackson Prairie storage. "Adequate balancing gas in Jackson Prairie going into the winter heating season is critical to 1) provide reliable firm service on a peak day, 2) provide balancing flexibility to reduce the likelihood, levels and duration of potential entitlements, and 3) mitigate OFOs through the Kemmerer Compressor Station," Northwest said. "The economics of gas prices in the Rockies throughout this summer and fall indicate that north flow demands through the Kemmerer Compressor Station will exceed design capacity for the foreseeable future. Thus, it is critical that Northwest work with its customers to develop a strategy that will limit the net scheduled quantities to 640,000 Dth/d through the Kemmerer Compressor Station and to 400,000 Dth/d through the Meacham Compressor Station." See the bulletin board for conference call details.
