Transportation Notes

El Paso warned of possibly needing to declare a Strained Operating Condition, citing high linepack due to actual delivery takes being below scheduled quantities and receipts from supply basins in excess of scheduled volumes. The Washington Ranch storage facility is making maximum injections, El Paso said. It encouraged delivery point operators to take gas according to their scheduled quantities and receipt point operators to reduce and/or maintain deliveries into the system at their scheduled rates. Additionally, imbalance paybacks to the system will not be accepted as long as the high-linepack condition remains.
