Transportation Notes

Ruby Pipeline said Thursday night that based on its best available information, the return to service on its system is anticipated to occur during the gas day of Sunday (Dec. 18). The restoration plan includes ramping up operationally available capacity over the course of about three days to allow Ruby to restore the linepack necessary to schedule and deliver service at firm contracted capacity, the pipeline said. The plan had three phases: 1) Ruby would accept nominations for Sunday during the Intraday 2 nomination cycle (Cycle 4) with an estimated operationally available capacity of 330 MMcf/d; 2) Ruby would accept nominations for Monday, starting with the Evening nomination cycle (Cycle 2) with an estimated operationally available capacity of 660 MMcf/d; and 3) for Tuesday’s gas day, Ruby anticipates being able to schedule firm contracted capacity, but it depends on acceptable linepack restoration.
