TO: All Southern Natural Gas Shippers & Poolers
SUBJECT: Operational Flow Order Type 6 Notice
Based on the current milder weather forecast, current limited injection
capabilities due to the planned storage shut-in test at Muldon that is ongoing and
projected demand on Southern's system, we are implementing an OFO Type 6 for
long imbalances on Southern's contiguous pipeline system effective for the
start of the gas day, Saturday, April 08, 2017, and until further notice. In
order to maintain the operational integrity of Southern's system, it is
essential that Shippers and Poolers remain in balance (including their
available no-notice injection entitlements).
The OFO Type 6 order will subject each Shipper/Pooler to the following tiered imbalance
Daily Imbalance Penalty
(Percent of Allocated Deliveries ) ( Per Dth )
0 - 2% or < 200 dth No Penalty
> 2 - 5% $1.00
> 5 - 8% $ 5.00
> 8% $15.00
Since the projected operational conditions are affected by receipts exceeding
deliveries, the penalty will apply only to each Shipper/Pooler that has a net
long imbalance (i.e., the party's total allocated receipts exceed total
allocated deliveries including available no-notice storage injections).
If you have any questions regarding the OFO, please call your Account Manager
or Scheduling Representative.
