Related to the colder-than-normal weather forecasted in its market area, Southern Star Central has posted a list of criteria (see the bulletin board) to which shippers must adhere to prevent the pipeline from issuing a systemwide or point- or shipper-specific OFO on short notice. The restrictions are expected to remain in effect until the start of Monday's gas day.

CIG lifted Tuesday the Strained Operating Condition that it had implemented Sunday due to cold weather in its service area.

CenterPoint issued an Operational Alert to notify shippers of a force majeure situation caused by unscheduled maintenance on Line NT-1 in Caddo Parish, LA, serving south Shreveport. The line was taken out of service about 1 p.m. CST Wednesday to allow CenterPoint to assess potential damage and make any necessary repairs. See the bulletin board for a list of locations that had to shut in until repairs are complete. "Absent any new information," the pipeline said, it expected to restore the line to service in less than 24 hours.
