El Paso took Belen Station’s #1 turbine down Tuesday to investigate a problem with the oil pump. The unit will remain down Wednesday. Previously scheduled work at Caprock Station will also occur Wednesday. The ongoing force majeure outage of Belen’s #2 unit will continue through Feb. 15, El Paso said. Capacity of the San Juan Crossover will be reduced by 35 MMcf/d from a base capacity of 650 MMcf/d Wednesday through Feb. 15.

NGPL said unscheduled maintenance continues on Unit #1 at Station 812 in Atoka County, OK, but it is now expected to be completed by Feb. 14 instead of Wednesday (Feb. 8) as previously anticipated.

Dominion will take Unit #9 at Cornwell Compressor Station out of service for about three days starting March 6 for maintenance and inspection. Producers in bubbles 2207, 3226 and 3227 must shut in all production by 7 a.m. ECT on March 6, the pipeline said. Barring unforeseen circumstances, production may be turned back online at noon March 8, it added.

In an update on force majeure conditions upstream of Toca (LA) Compressor Station, Southern Natural Gas said Tuesday delays caused by inclement weather caused a revision of projected in-service dates for the remaining offshore laterals that were damaged during Hurricane Katrina. It now expects the following: Feb. 28, 18-inch Main Pass 306 “D” to Main Pass 293; March 25, 20-inch South Pass 62 “B” to Main Pass 298 “B”; and March 31, 14-inch Main Pass 153 to South Pass 62 “B.” Restoration of the 12-inch West Delta 133 line is dependent on producer repairs, Southern said.
