NGPL’s High Island Lateral will be out of service for about 12hours of construction Thursday, causing a shutdown of Station 344(Jefferson County, TX). Shippers using the HI 116 Vasgas/NGPL HI 71point will need to nominate half of their normal volumes for thatgas day.

Northern Natural Gas held an open season in 1997 to expandcapacity in its market-area Zone EF. An expansion project wasauthorized by FERC in 1998 but due to market circumstances has notyet been constructed. However, it is scheduled to be in service byNov. 1, 2001. To give all current shippers an opportunity toparticipate, NNG is holding a follow-up open season through March31. The pipeline seeks to identify interest in incremental capacityfrom its Ventura receipt point to delivery points upstream of theHugo Compressor Station.
