Tennessee anticipates very limited flexibility due to higher pipeline capacity utilization and significantly colder weather this week

OFO DAILY CRITICAL DAY 1 DOWNGRADED FOR ALL OF ZONES L, 1, 2, 4, 5 AND 6 TO DAILY ACTION ALERT OFO EFFECTIVE 10-6-2020

 

Due to forecasted milder temperatures remaining across most of the system with associated lower demand along with high storage inventories and in an effort to protect system integrity and firm service obligations, effective for the Gas Day of Tuesday, October 6, 2020, and until further notice, Tennessee is downgrading the current OFO Daily Critical Day 1 for all of Zones L, 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 for all Balancing Parties (including LMS-PA, SA contracts acting as balancing parties, LMS-MA, and LMS-PL balancing parties) to an OFO Daily Action AlertThis action is pursuant to Article X, Section 3 of the General Terms and Conditions of Tennessee's FERC Gas Tariff. 

 

All delivery point operators in all of Zones L, 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 are required to keep actual daily takes out of the system equal to or greater than scheduled quantities regardless of their cumulative imbalance position.  All receipt point operators in all of Zones L, 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 are required to keep actual daily receipts into the system equal to or less than scheduled quantities regardless of their cumulative imbalance position.  In addition, it is essential that delivery point operators schedule gas at meters commensurate with takes within the affected areas.  All LMS-PA, SA contracts acting as balancing parties, LMS-MA and LMS-PL Balancing Parties are required to maintain an actual daily flow rate not exceeding 5% of scheduled quantities or 2500 dths, whichever is greater for over-deliveries into the system and under-takes from the system. Customers will be assessed a rate of $.2198 per dekatherm for that portion of physical quantities related to over-deliveries into the system by receipt point operators and under-takes from the system by delivery point operators which exceed this tolerance.

 

THIS DAILY OFO ACTION ALERT WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.   TENNESSEE WILL INFORM CUSTOMERS BY EBB WHEN THIS OFO WILL BE LIFTED.

 

Tennessee would like to remind all operators/agents of power plants directly connected to TGP of certain parameters of FERC Order 698 requirements. Tennessee requires that all power plant operators submit burn profiles and nominations prior to gas flow. Due to very limited flexibility, power plant operators are encouraged to burn ratably based on scheduled volumes. The burn profiles should be sent to TGPGasControl@Kindermorgan.com. The latest burn profile template can be found by accessing the Tennessee web site and following the steps below.

In the event this OFO is not sufficient to maintain the operational integrity of the system, Tennessee may escalate back to a Critical Day 1, Critical Day II, an OFO Balancing Alert, Meter Specific OFO(s) or Hourly OFO(s). Tennessee cannot accept unscheduled imbalances and requires all customers to nominate and schedule all payback requests.

 

Tennessee will deem all affected Shippers to be in compliance with the actions specified in this Daily Action Alert OFO if after the measurement close the actual system conditions were opposite to the conditions for which the OFO were issued.
