The outage will require 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 early Sunday morning 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 interrupted, according to the Audrain County Sheriff’s Office.

According to Panhandle’s notice, the company will be limiting nominations through Haven to 1.125 million Btu/day, effective immediately, and until further notice.

“Shippers are encouraged to bring in physical flowing gas from their Primary receipt point, or physical market area receipt meters downstream of this outage in order to avoid the constraint, and potential scheduling reductions of their nominated activity,” according to the company’s notice.

“The cold weather restrictions outlined in Critical Notice ID 8196 will remain in effect. Panhandle will be requiring all Enhanced Firm Transportation (EFT) shippers to limit their physical deliveries (takes) to a one-sixteenth hourly rate of the nominated volume.” – P&GJ
