AUGUST 2006 – SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE PROJECTS ON NATURAL

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.

 

Reservation Charge Credits:  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.
