NGPL reported that repairs are continuing on a leak discovered late last week on its A/G Line, which remains shut in. NGPL said it made operational arrangements with its own system and with interconnecting operators, but “due to the length of the outage, the impact of not having the A/G Line available has greatly increased the linepack on the Amarillo system.” Effective with Monday’s gas day, NGPL was not scheduling ITS/AOR or Secondary volumes through Stations 109, 110 and 801, saying only Primary Firm services will be scheduled there until further notice.
