01/03/2017 - Extreme Weather Alert - Update #2
Please Note: Changes from the previous posting are shown in bold type.
Based on current cold weather forecasts, Panhandle is preparing for increased pipeline utilization and reduced operational flexibility. Effective Gas Day December 24, 2017, Panhandle is requesting all delivery point operators to minimize over-takes and all receipt point operators to minimize their under-deliveries into the system.
To ensure system integrity, Power Plant Operators must have nominated supply. Panhandle will be requiring all Shippers under Rate Schedule EFT, EIT, SCT, GDS or LFT to limit their hourly deliveries to one-sixteenth of the quantity scheduled for delivery on the applicable Day. Please refer to the GT&C Section 12.11(g) of the Panhandle Tariff regarding the penalty provisions as it applies to customers in the event of noncompliance with this request.
Intraday scheduling reductions may be implemented to ensure that nominations match actual flowing quantities. Shippers are encouraged to submit their nominations for the Timely cycle. Evening and Intraday nominations are subject to scheduling reductions based on nomination levels and physical capacity.
Due to continued extreme weather and increased demand on the system, beginning Gas Day January 4, 2018, Market Zone nominations are subject to Panhandle's scheduling parameters outlined in GT&C Section 8 of Panhandle's FERC gas tariff. To ensure flow during these extreme weather conditions, shippers are strongly recommended to flow utilizing the highest priority path. Based on expected demand and operationally available capacity, interruptible and secondary nominations may not be confirmed.
Actual volume confirmations will be dependent on nominated volumes and expected demand. Delivery point operators are required to maintain flow at or below their confirmed and scheduled point level. Receipt point operators are required to maintain flow at or above their confirmed and scheduled point level. Operational flow orders will be issued as necessary to insure system integrity.
Similarly, all storage customers are requested to stay at or below their Maximum Daily Withdrawal Quantity (MDWQ). Storage customers should adjust flowing volumes to remain at or below these limits. Storage overruns will be subject to penalties.
Panhandle may limit Auto-Unpark nominations on the pipeline for the duration of the extreme weather. These limits will be evaluated on a daily basis.
