Pipeline Balancing Injection Unavailable

Monday, September 24, 2018

Pipeline balancing services are provided on California Gas Transmission's system by an allocated 4.040 Bcf of storage inventory, 75 MMcf/d of injection capacity, and 75 MMcf/d of withdrawal capacity. The current inventory of Imbalance Gas in Storage can be found on the Pipe Ranger Operations page.

Recent over-deliveries by suppliers have increased Imbalance Gas in Storage to a level that has reached the upper limit of 4.040 Bcf. As such, pipeline balancing injection will not be available.

Without the ability to inject for balancing, the likelihood of high inventory OFOs increases.

What can shippers do to help avoid high inventory OFOs?

  • Balance supply and demand daily. Work to ensure that supplies brought in for your customers balance with their daily demands. 
  • Keep an eye on the System Inventory Status information posted on Pipe Ranger.

Please call your CGT Representative if you have questions.
