Although Southern Natural Gas recently completed repairs to all of its facilities that were damaged last year by Hurricane Ivan (see Daily GPI, July 27), it noted Thursday that several receipt points sustained damage to third-party facilities that interconnect with its system and remain offline. It listed the points as Mississippi Canyon 20 and Main Pass 288, 296, 151 and 72. The return of those points to service is dependent upon third parties completing repairs to their facilities, Southern said. Shippers and poolers should contact the operators of the affected receipt points to determine the status of any such repairs. In addition, the Main Pass 293 receipt point has been abandoned due to Ivan damages, and Southern said it understands that repairs will not be made there.

Transco said an outage on its Southeast Louisiana Lateral to replace an underwater section of pipe (see Daily GPI, July 15), which began July 21, has run into unanticipated delays. The project, previously expected to be finished Aug. 4, now will run through Aug. 11, the pipeline said. The work requires the shut-in of about 100 MMcf/d at five offshore platforms.

Florida Gas Transmission kept an Overage Alert Day notice for its market area that began July 17 in place through at least Thursday, but tightened the tolerance for negative daily imbalances from 25% to 10%.
