Notice Text:
STATION 302 – REPLACE REGULATOR – UPDATE

FORCE MAJEURE - SEGMENT 8 AND AFFECTED AREA 5/6 – HUTCHINSON COUNTY

 

Natural has experienced a suspected leak on its Amarillo Mainline #3 in Hutchinson County, Texas in Natural's Midcontinent Zone.  This is a Force Majeure event that requires Natural to temporarily reduce the maximum operating capacity northbound, thus limiting Natural's throughput capacity from Segment 8 into the Midcontinent Zone as well as the Affected Area segments 5/6 flowing northbound into Segment 10 of the Midcontinent Zone. 

 

Additionally, transports associated with storage withdrawals will be impacted.  The Permian Pool (LOC 25077) and the Midcontinent Pool (LOC 25078) are located south (upstream) of the constraint.

 

As such, effective for gas day Monday, February 25, 2019, Evening Cycle, and continuing until further notice, Natural will schedule Primary Firm and Secondary in-path Firm transports to no less than 87% of contract MDQ from the Permian Zone (Segment 8) flowing into the Midcontinent Zone.  Actual nomination levels and changes in pipeline conditions could result in changes to the percentages scheduled (lower or higher) on subsequent gas days.  AOR/ITS and Secondary out-of-path Firm transports continue to not be available for the duration of this restriction.

 

For the Affected Area 5/6, effective for gas day Monday, February 25, 2019, Evening Cycle, and continuing until further notice, Natural will schedule a total receipt point capacity of 186,000 dth per day in the Affected Area. AOR/ITS, Secondary out-of-path Firm transports and Secondary in-path Firm transports continue to not be available.  Natural will be required to schedule down nominations for Primary Firm transports. 

 

 

Continue to monitor Natural's interactive website for any updates during this restriction.  Please contact your Account Director or Scheduling Representative if you have any questions.
