Panhandle Eastern Capacity Reduced by Missouri Pipeline Blast

Energy Transfer’s Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line said it reduced mainline capacity on its system in early March after a fiery rupture downstream of its Centralia Compressor Station.

The outage required a section of the Centralia 400 Line to be shut-in for repairs, prompting critical notice of a Force Majeure Event in accordance with Panhandle’s Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Gas Tariff.

The rupture occurred north of Mexico, Missouri – downstream of the Centralia Compressor Station – about 120 miles from St. Louis.  No serious injuries were reported from the blast, but power to several homes was briefly interrupted.

According to Panhandle’s notice, the company was limiting nominations through Haven to 1.125 MMBtu/d and encouraged shippers to bring in physical flowing gas from their primary receipt point downstream of the outage to avoid the constraint.
