Pacific Gas and Electric issued a systemwide Stage 2 high-inventory OFO for Saturday on its California Gas Transmission system, setting penalties of $1/Dth for exceeding a 5% tolerance on positive daily imbalances.

Noting the anomaly investigations it was performing near the Kemmerer Compressor Station through Oct. 1, Northwest said that from last Saturday through Sept. 30 it was raising available Kemmerer capacity to 579,000 Dth/d and would restore full design capacity of 655,000 Dth/d Oct. 1. However, if primary nominations continue to exceed the available capacity during the work, Northwest said the station will remain in deficiency mode and it would allocate nominations accordingly.
