Northwest is performing live line welding and pigging facility installations near the Lava Hot Springs Compressor Station on Monday through Friday this week. Because Primary Firm nomination requests through this point currently exceed the available capacity of 471,000 Dth/d, Northwest said Sunday, it gave notice of a Declared Deficiency Period for Monday's gas day that is expected to continue until the work is finished. The daily deficiency volume is 175,000 Dth, it added.

CenterPoint issued an Operational Alert in connection with planned maintenance at Custer Compressor Station that begins Tuesday and continues through Friday. During this time station capacity will be reduced to 120,000 Dth/d, while will require a pro rata reduction in receipt nominations, based on current nomination levels.

Due to pressure incompatibility at the Greensburg CCP interconnect between Cheyenne Plains and ANR in Kansas, receipt capacity there must be limited to 184,000 Dth/d until further notice, ANR said Monday. Based on current nominations, pooling receipts from this location will be impacted, ANR said. It also noted that due to high pressure as a result of a downstream engine outage in Wisconsin in the Northern Fuel Segment (ML-7), ANR must limit receipt capacity at the Marshfield Viking interconnect 240,000 Dth/d until further notice, which based on current nominations is expected to cause curtailment of IT and Firm Secondary nominations. And in a third maintenance-related posting Monday, ANR said it must begin unplanned engine repairs Tuesday at St. John (IN) Compressor Station, also located in (ML-7. The total St. John west-east capacity will be reduced by 115 MMcf/d (leaving 1,190 MMcf/d available) through Wednesday, ANR said, and based on current nominations along the Michigan Legs, that work also is likely to to result in curtailment of IT and Firm Secondary nominations.
