Based on the milder weather forecast, limited injection ability due
to the Muldon Shut-In Test and corresponding rising line pack levels on
Southern's system effective for the start of the gas day, Tuesday, April 6th,
2021 and until further notice, Southern is implementing a Type 6 OFO for long
imbalances. In order to maintain the operational integrity of Southern's
system, it is essential that Shippers and Poolers remain in balance (including
their available no-notice injection entitlements).
The OFO Type 6 order will subject each Shipper/Pooler to the following tiered
Daily Imbalance Penalty
Percent of Allocated Deliveries
0 - 2% or < 200 dth
> 2 - 5%
> 5 - 8%
Since the projected operational conditions are affected by receipts exceeding
deliveries, the penalty will apply only to each Shipper/Pooler that has a net
long imbalance (i.e., the party's total allocated receipts exceed total
allocated deliveries including available no-notice storage injections).
Southern cannot accept unscheduled imbalances and requires all customers to
nominate and schedule all payback requests.
If you have any questions regarding the OFO, please call your
Account Manager or Scheduling Representative.
