ANR said the critical outage along its Southwest Mainline just upstream of the New Windsor Compressor Station in Illinois remained in effect Tuesday. Investigation and analysis of Sunday night’s rupture (see Daily GPI, Feb. 4) continue. ANR does not expect the impacted facilities to become operational again until late this week. “Transportation service through this area will be evaluated and scheduled on a daily basis. Availability of secondary and interruptible transportation will depend on Firm Primary nominations,” the pipeline said.

Based on current high utilization of the Louisiana Line and in an effort to lessen impact to shippers’ transport activity, NGPL has rescheduled maintenance at Compressor Station 302 in Montgomery County, TX to March 4-10. The project previously had been scheduled for Feb. 4-10 (see Daily GPI, Jan. 31) and then postponed until Feb. 18-24.

Gulf South began unscheduled maintenance Tuesday on Unit #1 of the Montpelier Compressor Station in St. Helena Parish, LA. The work will continue until further notice, during which capacity impact north of the station could be as much as 75 MMcf/d. Gulf South expects to complete unscheduled maintenance on Unit #3 at the Goodrich (TX) Compressor Station, which began Monday, this Friday. Capacity north and south of Goodrich on Gulf South’s West 30-inch Line (Index 129) could be affected by as much as 75 MMcf/d.
