Due to unscheduled maintenance on the Terrebonne system’s 319B-1900 line, Trunkline will not be accepting nominations at the South Timbalier 187, 185 and 179B meters starting Friday. The work is expected to last for three days.

El Paso said Wednesday’s maintenance that caused a total outage of Bondad Station in San Juan Basin (see Daily GPI, March 31) was expected to be partially completed in time to begin flowing gas through the station by late afternoon. Thus it was allowing up to 200 MMcf/d to be scheduled through Bondad effective with Cycle 3 nominations Wednesday. Bondad flows are scheduled to be reduced by 135 MMcf/d Thursday before full base capacity of 745 MMcf/d is restored Friday. The pipeline will shut down Line 1200 downstream of Flagstaff (AZ) Station April 28-29 for valve replacement, reducing capacity of the North Mainline by 105 MMcf/d.

Columbia Gulf said late Wednesday it had identified a leak on the offshore 20-inch CNT Line upstream of the B side of Eugene Island 250. “An update will be posted notifying platform operators and shippers when shut-ins are required so that repairs can be made,” it said. Columbia Gulf just completed repairs of a leak in the same area near the end of March (see Daily GPI, March 31). It was not known at press time whether the prior leak had reopened.

Due to GulfTerra Texas Pipeline replacing valves and measurement equipment at the GulfTerra/Transwestern Pecos interconnect, GulfTerra will not be able to receive or deliver gas there until the work is completed, which is expected by April 22, Transwestern said Wednesday.

TGT is limiting capacity through Sharon Compressor Station in North Louisiana to 360,000 MMBtu/d through April 30 for station pipe modifications. It has scheduled a semi-annual shut-in test of its Midland (KY) Storage Field for April 18-29.

CenterPoint reported that it is evaluating the replacement or potential abandonment of its Line FT-2, which serves the Minden area in Webster Parish, LA. CenterPoint is discussing alternatives with affected customers to finalize its plans.
