High BTU Gas Expected June 22, 2016

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Pacific Gas and Electric Company's California Gas Transmission expects to receive higher-than-normal heating value gas into its system on Wednesday morning, June 22, 2016. The high BTU gas will be coming in at the Gas Transmission Northwest (GTN) interconnect at Malin and has an expected duration of 6 hours. The speed at which the high BTU gas will migrate through the system is dependent upon the system demand pattern experienced by the local transmission and distribution systems. The BTU value of the delivered gas is expected to range between 1046-1047 BTU/cf and may have an approximate 2-hour peak of 1050 BTU/cf, which is above normal levels of approximately 1030 BTU/cf.

The BTU content throughout PG&E's system is expected to remain within existing parameters for safe and reliable equipment operation. However, some customer processes may be sensitive to natural gas heat content, especially electric generation facilities, refineries, glass manufacturers and commercial customers using natural gas for cooking and drying. Customers testing their emissions may notice the increased BTU content.
