With a force majeure declared Sunday and associated constraints remaining in effect until further notice at Steele City Compressor Station (see Daily GPI, June 7), Rockies Express (REX) said it has determined that replacing the entire power turbine in lieu of only the damaged section is the most expeditious means of returning Unit #2 to service. Completion of assembling a new turbine is expected this coming Sunday, REX said. The turbine is expected to arrive on site Tuesday, and barring any unforeseen circumstances in shipping, installation and commissioning, the resumption of service at Steele City is now estimated to occur on or about Wednesday, REX said.
