Is the Path to Southern California Reliable?

Wednesday, November 17, 2004

California Gas Transmission is periodically asked the question: Is firm transport service from the Oregon border to southern California reliable? And CGT's answer: You bet!

CGT has a policy of not oversubscribing its firm capacity. In addition, during the tumultuous summer months, CGT works hard through partnership with its customers to keep the Wheeler Ridge window open and keep firm gas flowing. So far this year, CGT has achieved a record of zero firm cuts into southern California in the timely cycle. In fact, since the start of 2002, less than one-half of one percent of the nominated firm volumes in the timely cycle have been cut going to SoCal Gas.
