November Capacity and Storage Capability Information Now Available

Monday, October 20, 2014

PG&E's California Gas Transmission would like to make customers aware of two issues which will be impacting transportation capacity for November and beyond, and storage capacity in November.

Redwood Path Pressure Reduction

As reported two weeks ago, CGT will take a pressure reduction on the Redwood Path (Line 401) starting on November 1, 2014. This will cause Redwood Path maximum capacity to be reduced to approximately 1,835 MMcf/day. (This is the average over the full time period. Each month's capacity will be slightly different.) It is our current expectation that this pressure reduction and related mitigation will not be resolved earlier than June 1, 2015.

Due to the location of the pressure reduction, there will be minimal impact on withdrawals from the independent storage providers on the Redwood Path.

This reduction in capacity, as well as other maintenance scheduled for the month of November, has now been posted on the Pipeline Maintenance News page

Storage Inventory Verification Period and Storage Maintenance

From November 1 through November 20, 2014, CGT will be conducting an inventory verification process at its storage fields, as well as doing other maintenance. Although this work will have an impact on both injections and withdrawals during this time period, it is our current forecast that both injection capacity and withdrawal capacity will meet expected demand for those services.

Please keep your eyes on the PG&E Supply and Demand Forecast (Net Physical Flows) for each day's PG&E Storage injection maximum and PG&E Storage withdrawal maximum.

Please contact your CGT Sales Representative if you have any questions about your storage account during November.
