Northern Border said “concurrent unplanned compressor station outages upstream of Ventura” Monday evening prompted it to place a firm-only scheduling restriction on the 42-inch pipeline segment (Monchy/Port of Morgan to Ventura) for the gas days of Wednesday and today. Gas Control will re-evaluate conditions this morning to determine if the constraint will be lifted Friday.

Due to work required at the New Windsor Compressor Station, ANR‘s current total Southwest Mainline capacity reduction of 100 MMcf/d will be increased to 130 MMcf/d during the Oct. 8-13 period. Starting Oct. 14, the total reduction will return to 100 MMcf/d through Oct. 31.

ANR also postponed an outage of the Greenwood Lateral (Line 438) in southeast Michigan, previously scheduled for Oct. 29-Nov. 3 (see Daily GPI, Oct. 1), until an undetermined date next year.
