Committed Firm Capacities on Redwood and Baja

Friday, September 02, 2011

PG&E's California Gas Transmission understands how trying cuts of firm transportation nominations have been for customers this summer. In order to help customers better estimate and anticipate the level of cuts, CGT is providing the committed firm transportation capacities for both the Baja and Redwood paths in the table below.

Month Committed Capacity - Baja Path (MDth/day) Committed Capacity - Redwood Path (MDth/day)
Sep 2011 967.2 1702.7
Oct 2011 967.2 1703.8
Nov 2011 967.2 1703.3
Dec 2011 1101.4 1703.3
Jan 2012 1100.7 1480.6
Feb 2012 1100.7 1480.6
Mar 2012 779.7 1480.6

In order to get a rough estimate of an individual customer's firm cut level on any day, one can look at the relevant path capacity on the Pipeline Maintenance News page and compare it to the committed firm capacity for that month. For example: If the posted capacity for the Baja Path is 680 MMcf/day and the committed firm capacity for September is 967.2 MDth/day, than a rough expectation for firm volumes to flow would be 70%. Inversely, the rough estimate of levels of firm cuts would be 30%.

CGT hopes customers find this information useful. Please contact your CGT Account Services or Sales Representative if you have questions.
