There was no change in status Tuesday for a CIG rupture that occurred Sunday night in Weld County, CO (see Daily GPI, March 25), according to a pipeline spokesman. The company still anticipates there will be no interruptions in service and will post a bulletin board notice when repairs are completed, he said.

Maritimes & Northeast will conduct a planned outage of the mainline system April 4-5 to coincide with a planned interruption of production at the Sable Offshore Energy plant. During this outage, deliveries to the Tennessee meter at Dracut, MA will be reduced to zero. Alternatively, M&N shippers may make nominations for deliveries to the Tennessee interconnect at Haverhill, MA. Deliveries to all other system points will not be affected.

Tennessee chose two suppliers in its recent bid process for third-party storage service to be used by the pipeline for potential temporary balancing requirements beginning April 1. Petal Gas Storage, L.L.C. and Egan Hub Partners, L.P. were selected to provide services on the 500 Leg and 800 Leg respectively. “The above companies were selected on the basis of the most affordable injection, withdrawal, inventory and fuel charges for the service offered,” Tennessee said.
