Pacific Gas and Electric did not extend a systemwide high-inventory OFO beyond Saturday.

Wyoming Interstate Co. (WIC) reported Saturday experiencing electrical issues due to a short in the main power cables leading to Laramie Compressor Station, which affected the Laramie East Constraint (LWE). WIC declared a force majeure at LWE and reduced capacity there from 793 MMcf/d to 647 MMcf/d effective Monday until further notice. Affiliated pipe CIG said this may affect CIG's capacity of 170 MMcf/d on WIC.

Trunkline said Monday it has extended a maintenance outage of Cypress Compressor Station that began Sept. 11 and now estimates the outage duration at 23 days, during which capacity through Cypress will be limited to 150 MMcf/d.

Questar will be performing required Department of Transportation and other maintenance activities Tuesday through Thursday at Blind Canyon and Oak Spring compressor stations. In conjunction with this work, Questar also will perform system integrity digs/inspections along its ML 104 segment, which requires pressure reductions for safety purposes. To facilitate the project, ML 104 capacity will be reduced to 330,000 Dth/d Tuesday and to zero Wednesday and Thursday, returning to normal (520,000 Dth/d) in Cycle 1 nominations Thursday, Questar said. Receipts from Kern River will remain available for deliveries to Currant Creek during the reductions, it added. Kern River noted that Questar will reduce confirmations to match the volume restrictions at Kern River's Goshen receipt point; see the Kern River for anticipated impacts on operational capacity at its Veyo, Coyote Creek and Muddy Creek compressor stations. Based on current receipt and delivery patterns, Kern River said it does not expect an impact to primary firm transportation.
