Opal Plant operator Williams Field Services (WFS) said Tuesday afternoon existing cold in the plant area and "the projected extremely cold weather forecast going into the long holiday weekend may require WFS to make nomination reductions. These cuts would be due to the potential for current and future [equipment] freeze-offs. We are encouraging all customers to nominate the gas they believe is currently flowing." WFS also advised customers to rank the gas they would prefer to have cut if that became necessary.
