After evaluating the situation in which it declared a force majeure in connection with a compressor outage at Gallup (NM) Compressor Station on the San Juan Lateral (see Daily GPI, July 12), Transwestern said Monday it now suspects a rotor rewind within the variable frequency drive. Instead of returning the unit to service Tuesday as previously projected, Transwestern now expects the outage to last until Aug. 5. Until then San Juan Lateral capacity will remain about 825,000 MMBtu/d, down from the 893,000 MMBtu/d being scheduled prior to the force majeure event.

As a result of the order, El Paso began accepting Bounce Transaction nominations effective with Friday’s Intraday 2 and Saturday’s Evening nomination cycles.
