Citing “historically high storage inventory levels and projected high injection requirements for the upcoming weekend,” Southern Natural Gas said Friday it was implementing an OFO Type 6 for long imbalances Saturday until further notice (although it said in another notice that the OFO was unlikely to continue Monday). Tiered imbalance penalties were set for positive imbalances exceeding 2%, or 200 Dth, whichever was greater.

Rockies Express (REX) said maintenance at the Lost Creek Booster Station that had been scheduled to be completed Friday was finished early, and thus it was scheduling up to full capacity for the Intraday 1 cycle for Friday’s gas day. Depending on the level of nominations, AOR/IT, secondary and primary quantities may be scheduled, REX said.

Transco said it expected to complete modifications Sunday (Sept. 27) on the Southeast Louisiana Lateral and thus was accepting lateral nominations for the Timely Cycle on that gas day. However, after the line work is completed, startup may require periods of reduced or no flow during the initial 24-36 hours of operation, Transco said. The modifications had required the shutting in of a number of meters (see the bulletin board for full list) that had an aggregate flow of about 200,000 Dth/d prior to the project.
