Enterprise Product Partners LP’s High Island Offshore System LLC (HIOS) last Thursday was able to accept nominations and “resume some level of service” from all receipt locations to all delivery points by bypassing a Gulf of Mexico (GOM) compressor station damaged by a recent fire, the company said.

However, the company as of last Friday was continuing a force majeure at its HIA-264 compressor complex, which was damaged by a fire Aug. 4 (see NGI, Aug. 10)

“…[W]ith compression facilities remaining unavailable, shippers should expect higher-than-normal line pressures at receipt locations upstream of HIA-264,” Enterprise said. “These higher system pressures may cause production to be reduced or shut in at certain receipt locations so shippers should monitor scheduled versus actual flow very closely at receipt points and adjust scheduled volumes accordingly.

“Similarly, depending on the capacity available on any day, volumes nominated or flowing under interruptible service agreements, which may be physically able to flow, may be subject to scheduling reductions or interruption of service…” per the HIOS tariff.
