Columbia Gulf reported Thursday it had completed repairs on the 26-inch diameter Eugene Island System and allowed three platforms to resume flows effective with the Intraday 2 nominations cycle. Columbia Gulf also reduced its estimate of the amount of production shut in due to a leak on Line 100 of the West Leg of the Bluewater System to 12,000 Dth/d (see Daily GPI, Nov. 1). It said degassing operations would commence later Thursday and continue until the line pressure is reduced to a level that permits divers to enter the water safely. Depending on weather conditions, divers may be permitted in the water as early as Monday, and depending on the extent of the leak, operations could return to normal as soon as Wednesday, Columbia Gulf said.
