Saying its system was operating at high inventories and its two storage fields (Bear Creek in northwest Louisiana and Muldon in Mississippi) are at maximum injection capability, Southern implemented an OFO Type 6 for long imbalances Thursday until further notice. The pipeline said it was highly likely that the OFO would continue through Friday, but a further extension for Saturday was “too close to call.”

Columbia Gas said Friday’s gas day will be considered a “Critical Day” for storage. It projects that all available injection capacity will be required to meet firm service obligations, with no availability of interruptible services. Withdrawal nominations services are not impacted.

Until further notice, Columbia Gulf is not allowing any AutoPAL (Park and Loan) service and will not accept any nominations for resolving due-pipe imbalances.

Enogex said a Line 20 smart pigging operation that was postponed until Oct. 5-10 (see Daily GPI, Sept. 23) has been rescheduled again, this time for Oct. 18-21.

San Diego Gas & Electric has scheduled Department of Transportation-required maintenance on Line 3010, its primary mainline, starting at 6 a.m. PDT Saturday and ending 24 hours later. Noncore customers that declared operating emergencies and received utility approval will be solely responsible for ensuring that quantities delivered at the Otay Mesa receipt point are sufficient to cover all of their usage during the outage. See the Envoy bulletin board for further details.

TGT said its Youngsville East Segment capacity may be reduced by as much as 65,000 MMBtu/d during unscheduled maintenance at the Youngsville (LA) Compressor Station that begins Friday. A completion date has not yet been determined.

Available capacity of the Muttonville Lateral will be 100,000 Dth/d until further notice, which may result in the curtailment of IT and Firm Secondary nominations, ANR said.

Physical flow will be suspended at three Gulf South meters (see the bulletin board for a list) during Oct. 3-5 maintenance on a Crosstex-operated pipeline, Gulf South said.
