Line Sections 7, 25 & 30 - Receipt Point OFO Watch 6/3/2019 - 10/1/2019
Critical - Operational Alert
Due to the amount of receipt gas being nominated from receipt points in Line Sections 7, 25 and 30, it is critical that the physical flow from ALL receipt points match the daily scheduled quantities. During times of allocation or curtailment, WBI Energy is unable to take any extra gas at receipt points. The physical flow must also be maintained on an evenly hourly flow. Shippers and operators should review their scheduled quantity reports for all cycles to ensure that physical flow matches scheduled quantities. Shippers are expected to nominate the receipt point(s) anticipated flow. If the scheduled quantities do not equal the physical receipts for the gas day and WBI Energy does not receive full cooperation through the normal scheduling process, it may be necessary for WBI Energy to issue an OFO to such affected Parties. Such issuance of an OFO, if necessary, would permit WBI Energy to take whatever actions necessary to maintain system integrity. If, however, any receipt point operator does have an extenuating circumstance on maintaining the scheduled quantity or evenly hourly flow, such request must be communicated to WBI Energy PRIOR to gas flowing to see if an adjustment can be operationally handled. Such requests must be communicated to WBI Energy even if there are no allocations or curtailments. If flows do differ and have not been approved, WBI Energy will take the necessary actions to ensure that system integrity is maintained and other receipt point volumes are not affected. In addition, all deliveries in the curtailed line sections must also match scheduled quantities to ensure the Line Section remain in balance.

For more information, please refer to the FERC filing. O5/01/2019: On October 31, 2018, WBI Energy Transmission filed revised tariff records reflecting a general rate increase under section 4 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as well as certain other tariff changes including the establishment of a Capital, Environmental, and Safety Cost Recovery Mechanism. On November 30, 2018, the Commission issued an order accepting and suspending the proposed tariff records to be effective May 1, 2019, subject to refund and the outcome of hearing procedures. WBI Energy filed motion rates to take effect today, May 1, 2019. The purpose of the motion filing is to place into effect the rates suspended in the November 30 Order, as adjusted, to reflect plant in service, associated accumulated depreciation, depletion, and amortization, and accumulated deferred income taxes as of March 31, 2019, the end of the test period. The adjusted rates are slightly lower than the rates submitted in the October 31 Filing.
