Saying linepack on upstream pipelines had stabilized, Southwest Gas lifted Wednesday the Stage 1 OFO it had issued Monday and told transportation customers that the normal nominating and scheduling process was being resumed effective with Wednesday’s gas day. Despite the linepack improvement, Southwest said it encourages customers to ensure that actual takes match scheduled supplies.

Based on projected market-area loads, expected flows from the Demarc location and carbon dioxide levels at its Trailblazer interconnect, Northern Natural Gas said Wednesday it expects to schedule 125,000-225,000 Dth/d at the Trailblazer interconnect until further notice. Volumes are still being allocated at the Trailblazer interconnect due to less gas being received from receipt points south of Beatrice, NE that provide the ability to blend carbon dioxide from Trailblazer to acceptable levels on the system, Northern said, but they are subject to change depending on the quantity and location of gas scheduled in the market area. Within this range, Northern may be able to schedule a higher level of volume during the week with lower levels on the weekends due to anticipated lower market throughput levels,” the pipeline said.

Tennessee said it has repaired a leak on the 509A-1200/509A-1100 line, and Vermilion 261A was allowed to resume flow as soon as a nomination was in place.

Southern Natural Gas said Wednesday it was informed by Southeastern Supply Header that work has been completed on a pipeline condition that was reducing capacity at their central Mississippi interconnect. Southern canceled an associated force majeure and resumed accepting nominations at three interconnects that had been affected by the project.

Pacific Gas and Electric indicated that a compressor problem at Kettleman Compressor Station on its California Gas Transmission system would not continue restricting Baja Path capacity beyond Wednesday.

Citing favorable pipeline conditions, Kern River said it was raising Goodsprings Compressor Station capacity to 1,841,000 Dth/d for the gas days of Wednesday and Thursday, and would continue to monitor conditions during the remainder of the Goodsprings maintenance, expected to last through April 29, for further possible capacity increases.

Southern California Gas said Wednesday it was losing 135 MMcf/d of injection capacity and 1,050 MMcf/d of withdrawal capacity at its Aliso Canyon storage facility until further notice due to maintenance projects.
