Westcoast postponed an in-line inspection tool run between Stations 4B and 5, previously set for Thursday (see Daily GPI, July 30) due to failure of a tool component. The pipeline has not yet scheduled a new date for the project but said it will not be before Aug. 6 at the earliest. Westcoast also said its Pine River Gas Plant had shut down around 7 p.m. local time Tuesday due to an electrical failure but as of 6 a.m. Wednesday was processing all available gas with the A and B trains fully online. “The last processing train is currently circulating, and will come online as gas is available in the gathering system,” it said.

Gulf South began unscheduled maintenance Wednesday on the #1 unit at Clarence Compressor Station in Natchitoches Parish, LA. The work is expected to last through Friday and could reduce capacity out of South Texas and/or East Texas by as much as 150 MMcf/d. A similar constraint is possible for about five weeks starting Aug. 4 when Gulf South begins scheduled maintenance on the station’s #2 unit.
