Baja Path Testing to Start in May

Friday, April 22, 2011

Updated: The previously reported hydrotesting work has been delayed. Therefore, the capacity reduction on the Baja Path will commence on May 24th, rather than on May 16th. The Baja Path capacity will be at 100% (1140 MMcf/day) from now until May 24th, when it will drop to 78% (893 MMcf/day) for the remainder of the month.

Additionally, June Baja Path hydrotesting activities and the resulting capacity reductions have been posted on the Pipeline Maintenance News page as well.

PG&E's California Gas Transmission will be doing a series of hydrotesting this summer on the Baja Path as a part of its larger program to ensure the safety of its gas pipeline system. The testing will start in May and run through October. During much of this time the Baja path will have a reduced capacity. The reduction will depend on the location of the test and will vary throughout the period.

The first such test is scheduled for May 16 through May 31, 2011 on Line 300A. During this period, the capacity of the Baja Path will be reduced to 893 MMcf/day. As with all pipeline maintenance information, path capacity reductions and dates associated with hydrotesting will be reflected on the Pipeline Maintenance News page. The actual dates for this first test may vary slightly from the current plan. Stay tuned to the Pipeline Maintenance News page for updates.
