Due to Hurricane Katrina causing many reductions in receipt volumes into its system and 90-degree temperatures being forecasted in Florida, Florida Gas Transmission issued an Overage Alert Day notice for its market area Sunday at 25% tolerance for negative daily imbalances. It tightened the tolerance to 10% Monday as supply problems continued.

Trunkline LNG said Sunday it had completed an unscheduled outage to accommodate expansion facility tie-ins (see Daily GPI, Aug. 25). As a result, the Lake Charles, LA terminal can accommodate physical sendout and LNG vessels’ deliveries again. However, due to Hurricane Katrina, the facility scheduled to cease operations should sustained winds at the terminal reach 55 mph. A spokesman said Monday afternoon area winds were up but nowhere near the 55 mph threshold.
