Update Hot Gas Coming Through

Tuesday, June 06, 2006

The higher-than-normal BTU gas California Gas Transmission announced June 1, 2006 has arrived. This high heating value gas is the result of the Cochrane Stripping plant, located in Canada, shutting down for scheduled maintenance. The high BTU gas entered the PG&E system at Malin, Oregon around 11:00 P.M. on June 5, 2006 and will arrive in the Antioch, California area at approximately midnight Tuesday, June 6, 2006. The heat content of the gas has leveled out at approximately 1068 BTU.

The BTU could change over time and we will share more information as it becomes available. The BTU level throughout PG&E's system will remain within existing parameters for safe and reliable equipment operation. If you have any questions, please contact your CGT Account Services Representative.
