("EPNG") is providing this update to the Force Majeure notice posted August 15, 2021 and subsequently updated on August 24, 2021, September 22, 2021, and September 30, 2021 (reference Critical Notice No. 612627, 612712, 612971, and 613026) associated with the pipeline failure on Line 2000 near the town of Coolidge, Arizona. Due to the ongoing pressure restriction on Line 2000, effective Gas Day October 16, 2021, Timely Cycle (Cycle 1), the combined scheduled volumes of the following receipt locations will be limited to the total scheduled delivery volume to the Mendoza Trail (48148) location:

Additionally , the following scheduling constraint east of the Wink compressor will be reduced to zero (0) dekatherms (Dth) per day effective Gas Day October 16, 2021, Timely Cycle (Cycle 1):




As a reminder, EPNG remains under a reduced operating pressure on the entire Line 2000 system, which in effect removes the Line 2000 system from service from Black River compressor station to the California border. Any specific questions related to operationally available capacity or unsubscribed capacity along this path should be directed to your marketing representative.


These reductions in operational capacity will remain in effect until further notice. EPNG will provide updates as more information becomes available.


This incident constitutes an event of force majeure under EPNG's FERC Gas Tariff, General Terms and Conditions, Section 11.3.
