Florida Gas Transmission (FGT) will begin pipe maintenance on the East White Lake Lateral just upstream of Station 75 Tuesday, with the work scheduled to continue until the end of March. During this period FGT will schedule up to 150,000 MMBtu/d from the FGT East White Lake South group, where it normally schedules up to 450,000 MMBtu/d. The ANR/FGT St. Landry Interconnect and the Gulf South/FGT St. Landry Interconnect, both on the lateral's north end, will not be affected. FGT also plans March 1-31 maintenance on the mainlines upstream of Station 9; up to 1,050,000 MMBtu/d will be scheduled through the station. Normal throughput there is up to 1,250,000 MMBtu/d. Another March 1-31 project involves pipeline and compressor station maintenance/upgrades between Stations 11 and 15. Up to 1,900,000 MMBtu/d will be scheduled through Station 12, down from a normal volume of up to 2,150,000 MMBtu/d. Similarly, FGT also plans pipeline and compressor station maintenance/upgrades between Stations 24 and 27 for March 1-31, which will reduce normal scheduling of up to 950,000 MMBtu/d through Station 26 (Southwest group) to a maximum 750,000 MMBtu/d.
