Force Majeure – Line 2000 – Update # 19

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.

EPNG completed the physical work on Line 2000 in accordance with PHMSA's corrective action order (CAO) and EPNG's remedial work plan (RWP). EPNG submitted a request to PHMSA today to lift the pressure restriction so that the line can return to commercial service. As a reminder, PHMSA will need time to review the request. EPNG will update this posting when PHMSA approves the request to lift the pressure restriction and Line 2000 is ready for commercial service. Any specific questions related to operationally available capacity or unsubscribed capacity along this path should be directed to your marketing representative.

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

For scheduling questions, please call your scheduling representative at (800) 238-3764.

For operational questions, please call Russ Pyeatt at (719) 520-3729 or Dan English at (719) 520-4722.
