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

OFO DAILY CRITICAL DAY 1 FOR ZONES 0 (EXCLUDING ALL AREAS SOUTH OF STA 1), L, 1, 2, 3, AND 4 EFFECTIVE 3-29-2024

 

Due to forecasted milder temperatures moving across the south system with associated lower demand and in an effort to protect system integrity and firm service obligations, effective for the Gas Day of Friday, March 29, 2024, and until further notice, Tennessee is implementing an OFO Daily Critical Day 1 for All of Zones 0 (Excluding all areas South of STA 1), L, 1, 2, 3, and 4 for all Balancing Parties (including LMS-PA, SA contracts acting as balancing parties, LMS-MA, and LMS-PL balancing parties).  This action is pursuant to Article X, Section 4 of the General Terms and Conditions of Tennessee's FERC Gas Tariff. 

 

All delivery point operators in all of Zones 0 (Excluding all areas South of STA 1), L, 1, 2, 3, and 4 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 0 (Excluding all areas South of STA 1), L, 1, 2, 3, and 4 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 2% of scheduled quantities or 500 dths, whichever is greater for over-deliveries into the system and under-takes from the system. Customers will be assessed a rate of $5.00 plus the applicable Regional Daily Spot Price per dekatherm for that portion of physical quantities related to over-deliveries by receipt point operators and under-takes by delivery point operators which exceed this tolerance.

 

THIS DAILY OFO CRITICAL DAY 1 WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

 

ADDITIONALLY THE FOLLOWING OFO ALSO REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:

OFO DAILY CRITICAL DAY 1 FOR ALL AREAS SOUTH OF STA 1 FOR OVER-TAKES FROM THE SYSTEM OR UNDER-DELIVERIES INTO THE SYSTEM FOR ALL BALANCING PARTIES.

 

TENNESSEE WILL INFORM CUSTOMERS BY EBB WHEN THESE OFOs 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 to a 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.  Payback nominations in these areas will be evaluated at each cycle and scheduled only if operational feasible.

 

Tennessee will deem all affected Shippers to be in compliance with the actions specified in the Daily Critical Day 1 OFOs if after the measurement close the actual system conditions were opposite to the conditions for which this OFO was issued.

   

Please contact your Scheduler if you have any questions.
