on Line 2000 near the town of Coolidge, Arizona.

November for the constraint locations associated with the Line 2000 outage and
posted them on October 19, 2021 as part of the Preliminary November 2021

border. EPNG does not have a timeframe for bringing the Line 2000 back to full
service. Any specific questions related to operationally available capacity or
unsubscribed capacity along this path should be directed to your marketing
EPNG will provide updates as more information becomes available.
