With freezing temperatures forecast for northern Florida Monday night, Florida Gas Transmission (FGT) notified market-area customers that it was issuing an Overage Alert Day for Monday with a 15% tolerance on negative daily imbalances. Noting that on Nov. 1 FGT had begun maintenance on the Citronelle FGT and Citronelle Transco interconnects between FGT Stations 10 and 11, FGT now expects to finish the work on Jan. 31; until then zero volumes are being scheduled at the interconnects. Total operational capacity there is 400,000 MMBtu/d, but during normal operations up to slightly above 300,000 MMBtu/d is scheduled. See the bulletin board for a list of affected area points.

Northern Natural Gas ended Monday a series of System Overrun Limitations that had been in effect in all market-area zones since Saturday, Jan. 15.

Tennessee lifted Monday an Action Alert OFO for Zone 4.

Transwestern has planned emergency maintenance starting Tuesday to remedy settling of pipe on Unit #3 at Bloomfield Compressor Station. Only the Enterprise Valverde facility, which will be reduced to zero flow Tuesday and Wednesday, will be affected. Normal capacity of 230,000 MMBtu/d will be restored Thursday, Transwestern said.

Tennessee said Saturday a previously reported leak in West Delta Block 39 in the Gulf of Mexico has been repaired. The leak was discovered last week (see Daily GPI, Jan. 20).
