After ending a four-day systemwide Stage 2 high-inventory OFO Sunday, Pacific Gas and Electric issued new ones for Tuesday and Wednesday on its California Gas Transmission system, setting Wednesday's tolerance for positive daily imbalances at 17%.

Transco said Saturday morning it was rescinding the implementation of an Imbalance OFO that had been scheduled to go into effect that day. "Operating conditions on the pipeline have improved; however, system operating flexibility remains limited," Transco said, adding that it still "strongly" encouraged shippers not to create any long imbalances.

Southwest Gas said Tuesday it was lifting the "Hold Burn to Scheduled Quantities" notice that it had issued June 25 due to drafting that caused low linepack on upstream pipelines.
