Pacific Gas and Electric kept a systemwide Stage 2 high-inventory OFO in place through at least Friday but loosened the tolerance for positive negative imbalances from 5% to 13%.

Florida Gas Transmission did not extend an Overage Alert Day beyond Wednesday, but said Thursday there was the potential for a new one because of highs in the mid 90s being forecasted for Florida during the next couple of days.

Due to ongoing maintenance at Blessing, TX, Texas Eastern has limited capabilities to manage imbalances on its 24-inch diameter in Access Area Zones South Texas and Easter Texas as well as Market Area Zones 1 and 2. As a result, Texas Eastern issued an Imbalance Warning Thursday, saying it is requiring all delivery point operators in those zones to keep actual daily takes out of the system equal to or greater than scheduled quantities regardless of their cumulative imbalance position. also, all receipt point operators in the zones must keep actual daily receipts into the system less than or equal to scheduled quantities regardless of their cumulative imbalance position.

Beginning Monday Gulfstream will have scheduled maintenance outage last through May 23 at the Williams Field Services-operated Mobile Bay Plant receipt point in Mobile County, AL. Receipts there will not be confirmed or scheduled during the outage.
