Force Majeure – Line 2000 – Update #9
El Paso Natural Gas Company, L.L.C. ("EPNG") is
providing this update to the Force Majeure notice originally posted August 15,
2021 (reference Critical Notice No. 612627), associated with the pipeline failure
on Line 2000 near the town of Coolidge, Arizona.
The Preliminary February 2022 Maintenance notice posted
today, January 19, 2021 (reference Critical Notice No.613892) updates the
capacity reductions for the month of February for the constraint locations
associated with the Line 2000 outage. The updated capacity amounts are a
result of base and net capacity changes for the month of February.
Finally, as a reminder, the pipeline failure remains under a
PHMSA order and the entire Line 2000 system is under a reduced operating
pressure. The reduced operating pressure in effect removes the Line 2000
system from service from Black River compressor station to the California
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
This incident constitutes an event of force majeure under
EPNG's FERC Gas Tariff, General Terms and Conditions, Section 11.3.
