Limited Nominations at Ruby Interconnect for Gas Day August 22

Monday, July 24, 2017

Planned compressor station maintenance on the Ruby Pipeline will cause limited flows at the Ruby-CGT interconnect (Onyx Hill) on gas day August 22, 2017. Flows at Onyx Hill coming into PG&E’s California Gas Transmission system will be zero for the Timely, Evening, Intraday 1 and Intraday 2 nomination cycles.

When confirming gas for the Intraday 3 (ID3) nomination cycle, CGT will be limited based on the following three factors:

  • The total capacity available on the Redwood Path
  • The amount of gas that CGT has previously scheduled to flow from Gas Transmission Northwest at Malin during the first four nomination cycles
  • The fact that, for ID 3, there are only 11 hours of flow remaining in the gas day

Ruby Pipeline’s outage capacity is stated to be 745 MDth on August 22 for ID3 (Cycle 5). Based on current expectations of the three factors above, CGT's forecast for gas deliveries that CGT can take at Onyx Hill for ID3 will be more closely estimated after the Timely cycle for gas day August 22 has been processed. Due to the one remaining nomination cycle, CGT forecasts that we may be able to take deliveries in a range between 200 MDths and 400 MDths which is less than Ruby’s stated outage capacity.
