El Paso said its Line 1,200 outage between the Williams and Seligman stations continued yesterday, reducing the capacity of the North Mainline by 40 MMcf/d. The current outage at Dilkon B turbine is causing a reduction of an additional 35 MMcf/d, for a total 75 MMcf/d. A completion date for Dilkon B has not yet been determined. If you have operational or scheduling questions, call your scheduling representative at (719) 520-4706. The pipeline also was in the process of installing a new 10-foot section of pipe downstream of its Bondad station on Line 1218. Pigging found the section to be flawed and in need of replacement, an El Paso spokeswoman said. The line was taken out of service for emergency repairs Wednesday, reducing the capacity through Bondad Station by 190 MMcf/d. The reduction was effective through Thursday but the work is expected to be completed for Friday flows.

Northwest Pipeline said it is still experiencing banking on its system. Temperatures remain warmer than normal, and Jackson Prairie storage is full. Excess volumes are being injected into Clay Basin. Northwest asked shippers to align supplies with markets, utilizing storage if needed. It requested that there be no banking systemwide. Northwest also said it plans to report Jackson Prairie storage activity throughout the winter in its Daily Operational Report to keep customers up to date on system activity.

Northwest also said it has a significant number of small packages of short-term firm transportation capacity available between multiple receipt and delivery points. Visit Williams’ web site for details: https://www.1line.williams.com
