After accepting limited nominations for two cycles of Sunday’s gas day, Ruby Pipeline said based on current pipeline conditions and imbalance payback quantities, it would be able to increase operationally available capacity for Monday “in excess of firm contracted capacity starting with the Evening Nomination Cycle (Cycle 2) tonight [Monday].” The return to service in excess of firm contract quantities ended the related force majeure event effective for Monday, Ruby added. See the bulletin board for other details on the pipeline’s restoration of service following a system shutdown caused Dec. 10 by a block valve yard fire in a remote area of Utah (see Daily GPI, Dec. 13).

Southern said Monday that maintenance had been completed on the Southeast Supply Header (SESH), allowing cancellation of a force majeure and resumption of flows to Southern from three SESH interconnects with other pipelines (CenterPoint, Gulf South and ETC Tiger).

Saying the composition of its gas stream was improved, Stingray noted that Bridgeline had resumed taking deliveries “on a conditional basis” but as of Saturday the Targa Stingray Plant had not returned to service. The restrictions had resulted from higher pressures caused by a Stingray pig run last Thursday.

Although Tennessee had expected to bring Unit 1A at Station 323 online Sunday, it reported discovering “other issues” during weekend startup of the unit. It now anticipates returning the unit to service Wednesday.
