Tennessee declared a force majeure event Friday for Station 214 (Carrolton, OH) after a "possible rupture" occurred nearby (see related story). No injuries were reported, and there was no interruption of customer service, said pipeline spokesman Robert Newberry. However, Tennessee anticipated limiting intraday flow increases for Friday's gas day and restricting 100% secondary out of path (SOP) nominations and lower priority services going forward, with a possibility of restricting a pro-rata portion of secondary in path (SIP) nominations. "At this time the certainty of such restrictions [is] unknown due to the current investigation of the incident," a bulletin board posting said.

Pacific Gas and Electric allowed a systemwide low-inventory OFO to expire Saturday after it had been in effect for the previous two days.

MRT lifted Friday a cold weather-based System Protection Warning that had begun Feb. 2.

NGPL cited moderating conditions in its supply regions in removing Friday a Cold Weather Advisory that had been posted Feb. 1.

Line S, which moves gas into Cobb Compressor Station in Kanawha County, WV, will be out of service for maintenance for one to three days starting Tuesday, Columbia Gas said. The work will reduce capacity of the Cobb South internal constraint to 5,000 Dth/d, Columbia added, so shippers should reduce their nominations in accordance with the metered flows, if available, to minimize imbalances. See the bulletin board for a list of affected receipt points.
