TGT said Thursday it had resolved the severe weather problems that caused intermittent losses of land-line phone service, no cell phone service and connectivity issues with its GasQuest nominations system. However, its Owensboro, KY office was closed for a second day as a county state of emergency remained in effect, a spokesman said. A security office for Southern Star Central, which is also headquartered in Owensboro, said that pipeline’s office also was forced to close Wednesday by the winter storm and remained closed Thursday except for essential personnel.

Transco said the gas being tendered to its system at the Enbridge Offshore Pipelines (UTOS) interconnect meter is not meeting the merchantability requirement in Transco’s tariff. Starting Sunday Transco will restrict volumes there to 15,000 Dth/d until it “determines that adequate quantities of gas received at the UTOS interconnect are being processed.”

Rockies Express (REX) said it anticipates commencing the acquisition of purge and linepack gas in February for REX-East service. “From time to time, REX may also purchase and sell gas to facilitate the testing of its new compressor stations,” the pipeline added.
