Subject: Entitlement and System Update
Effective for gas day Wednesday, February 27, 2019 and until further
notice, Northwest is revising its current Overrun Entitlement as follows:
Receiving Party points north of the Plymouth South constraint point,
including the Spokane and Wenatchee laterals, will be revised from a
Stage II (8%) Overrun Entitlement to a Stage I (3%) Overrun
The locations for the Stage II (8%) Overrun Entitlement will be
revised for Receiving Party points north of the Kemmerer compressor
station to points south of the Plymouth South constraint point.
Northwest is making this change based on forecasted weather for the Pacific
Northwest, expected variability in volumes available at the Sumas
interconnect via the Westcoast Pipeline system and declining deliverability
at the Jackson Prairie Storage facility.
Current inventory at Jackson Prairie is projected to be approximately 9 Bcf
at the end of today, February 25, 2019, with deliverability based on that
inventory level of approximately 350,000 Dth/d. Northwest anticipates the
deliverability at the Jackson Prairie will be fall to approximately 250,000
Dth/d based on a facility balance of 8.5 Bcf and less than 200,000 Dth/d
once inventory levels fall below 8 Bcf.
Northwest would like to remind customers that the daily deliverability at
Jackson Prairie is updated daily on Northwest's Electronic Bulletin Board.
(see All Shipper Notice 19-029).
Northwest would also like to remind customers of the upcoming Enbridge work
February 27 through at least March 9, which will severely limit supplies
coming into Northwest at Sumas.
Northwest understands the impact Entitlements have on its customers and ask
for your assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the system by
procuring firm natural gas supply for anticipated demand. Northwest reminds
customers that the current OFO's at Roosevelt, Plymouth South and Rangley
The Entitlement levels will be evaluated daily based on system line pack,
storage levels, weather forecasts and upstream pipeline notices.
