CIG implemented a Strained Operating Condition (SOC) Wednesday that it expected to remain in effect “through the end of September, unless specifically terminated sooner.” Storage inventories are at or near reservoir guidelines, CIG said, and thus its “ability to absorb imbalances caused by mismatches between scheduled receipts and deliveries or those imbalances arising from variations in actual gas flow from scheduled quantities is extremely limited.” The limitation includes capacity to handle storage injections in excess of each customer’s Available Daily Injection Quantity or inventory levels above Maximum Available Capacity. During the effective period of the SOC capacity for interruptible storage injections will not be available, CIG said.

Florida Gas Transmission ended Wednesday an Overage Alert Day just a day shy of it having been in effect for two weeks after being implemented Aug. 21.

El Paso lifted late Tuesday afternoon a Strained Operating Condition for three delivery locations in Arizona (see Daily GPI, Sept. 3).

Gulf South said it is unable to accept production behind the North Terrebonne Gas Plant or from the Plains-Burns Offshore Pipeline system supply until the plant resumes processing or Gulf South is able to blend gas to acceptable quality levels.

Saying its Youngsville Compressor Station in South Louisiana had returned to full operations (see Daily GPI, Sept. 3), TGT restored capacity in its Eunice East Segment to its normal 563,000 MMBtu/d Wednesday.

Citing operational conditions, Rockies Express (REX) said it can accept receipt nominations at CIG Frewen Lake and WIC Bitter Creek by displacement only. Receipt nominations will be scheduled to an amount equal to total delivery nominations, REX said, adding that AOR/ITS, secondary in-path and secondary out-of-path receipt quantities are at risk of not being scheduled.
