Florida Gas Transmission, which issued an Overage Alert Day (OAD) for market-area customers Wednesday and Thursday at 20% tolerance for negative daily imbalances, tightened the tolerance to 15% as it kept the OAD in place through at least Friday.

TransCanada said ongoing pipe maintenance on its Foothills BC System, originally scheduled to be completed July 31, has been extended and is now estimated to be completed by Aug. 31.

TGT said it will continue to conduct required pigging and other maintenance Aug. 1 on its Greenville Lateral. The pressure restrictions will require limiting the lateral’s capacity to 430,000 MMBtu/d, TGT said. The lower operating pressure has created deliverability problems at the Texas Eastern-Kosciusko interconnect in Mississippi, it added, so deliveries there will be reduced effective Aug. 1 and a force majeure will be declared for the Greenville Lateral until further notice. TGT said it did not know when the maintenance and associated constraints would end.
