Tennessee lifted a Critical Day 2 OFO at the start of Wednesday’s gas day, but that afternoon it said that due to colder temperatures and in order to maintain linepack, a Critical Day 1 OFO would become effective Friday until further notice in Zones 0, 1, L and 2 (see the bulletin board for details). Tennessee said it will continue to monitor Zones 3, 4, 5 and 6, and implement an OFO in those zones if necessary. The pipeline ended a force majeure late Tuesday evening at Station 47.

Southern Star Central issued a “critical notice” Wednesday that mostly pertained to limits on storage withdrawals; see the bulletin board for details.

Saying swing tolerances at its delivery points were at zero, CenterPoint issued an Operational Alert that will take effect Thursday. The alert “is informing one customer that they are not in compliance” with posted tolerances, the pipeline said. Specifically, it added, the Domtar Ashdown Plant in Little River County, AR, was being notified of the need to adhere to tariff-specified tolerances.

Southern Natural Gas said Wednesday it did not expect any customer impact from an unscheduled outage on its 24-inch diameter 2nd North Main Line in west-central Mississippi upstream of Louisville Compressor Station. The line was isolated and removed from service Wednesday morning, Southern said, and a repair plan was being developed. The pipeline also said due-shipper imbalance makeup nominations will continue to be cut to zero until further notice.
