Tennessee declared a force majeure event Friday for Compressor Station 249 in Carlisle, NY, due to the necessity of performing emergency repairs to the foundation supporting the frame of Unit 1A. If left unrepaired, this issue could result in a loss of mechanical integrity of the unit and/or a major failure resulting in an extended outage, Tennessee said. It expected to complete the repairs in seven days. Tennessee anticipates potential restrictions through a pro rata portion of Secondary in the Path nominations through Station 249 and said additional constraints may become necessary.

Cheyenne Plains Gas Pipeline said no problems were identified during Tuesday’s emergency shutdown test at its Cheyenne Plains Compressor Station and treating plant. It increased operationally available capacity Wednesday to 816 MMcf/d at the station and the Cheyenne Plains West constraint point, and to 874 MMcf/d at the Cheyenne Plains East constraint point. That represented a complete restoration of its system, which had been flowing about 780 MMcf/d prior to a mid-September station fire that briefly required a total shutdown (see Daily GPI, Sept. 18).
