Transportation Notes

El Paso said it continues to operate under pressure restrictions in a section of Line 1102 north of Amarillo Compressor Station that makes it unable to physically transport gas north or south between the Amarillo and Dumas compressor stations. Transportation through this segment will be scheduled only to the extent that net nominations in both directions are approximately zero, the pipeline said. It has now acquired all of the property required for rerouting this segment. El Paso said. It expects to start construction in August with an anticipated in-service date around Oct. 5.
