Pacific Gas & Electric issued a low-inventory Stage 1 OFOfor today. It carries penalties of $1/dth for negative dailyimbalances exceeding a relatively stringent 2% tolerance range.

Without actually issuing a low-linepack OFO, Florida GasTransmission said it was monitoring hourly and daily takes Mondaydue to significant market area demand over scheduled volumes.Unfortunately, FGT said, some customers overscheduled for theweekend, causing an underburn in the market area.

Maximum station flow has beenre-estimated at 360,000 MMbtu/d while two compressor units areregrouted; the limit earlier had been projected as 300,000 MMbtu/d(see Daily GPI, Oct. 19).
