TRANSCO CHOCTAW – METER MAINTENANCE – UPDATE 1
The scheduling impact has
been changed, as noted below. This notice was last posted on November 19,
2021, entitled “TRANSCO CHOCTAW – METER MAINTENANCE – PRIMARY ONLY”.
Effective for gas day Wednesday,
December 1, 2021, Timely Cycle, and continuing through gas day Thursday,
December 2, 2021, MEP will be performing meter maintenance at its delivery interconnect
with Transco Choctaw (LOC 44451), located in Choctaw County, Alabama. MEP has
been working to reduce the scheduling impact to its Shippers and had previously
posted to only schedule Primary Firm and Secondary in-path Firm transports.
Consequently, based on pipeline conditions, our scheduling impact is
anticipated to change as noted in this posting. This maintenance work requires
a capacity reduction, each gas day, for the first eight (8) hours of the gas
day (on both days noted) beginning at 9:00 a.m. central clock time and must
flow ratably for the hours in the gas day. Therefore, deliveries to Transco Choctaw
(LOC 44451), under this anticipated schedule as posted, will be scheduled to at
least a total delivery capacity for the entire gas day of 575,000 dth
per day. AOR/ITS and Secondary out-of-path Firm transports will not
be available until the work has been completed.
MEP continues to work diligently
to mitigate the scheduling impact to our Shippers. Should the scheduling
impact change, MEP will schedule higher as conditions allow. Please continue
to monitor MEP's interactive website for any updates.
To the extent MEP cannot schedule a shipper's Firm Daily Volume as a result of
this outage, and shipper does not utilize secondary point services, MEP will
calculate a reservation charge credit. Section 2.2(d)(1) of the GT&C of
MEP's Tariff defines Firm Daily Volume as “the volume of gas which MEP is
obligated to deliver on a firm basis for Shipper at primary Delivery Point(s)
under a firm contract on a Day, based on nominations for firm service within
firm contract rights at such primary points which could be confirmed.” To the
extent a Firm shipper nominates its primary firm receipt and delivery points,
and there is a matching upstream and downstream nomination at the location,
then if MEP cannot schedule the nomination, a reservation charge credit will
apply for such unscheduled volume.
