AGT Operational Flow Order East of Burrillville Compressor Station


Notice Text:

In order to maintain the operational integrity of the system, AGT is issuing an Operational Flow Order (OFO) pursuant to Section 26 of the General Terms and Conditions of AGT's FERC Gas Tariff effective 9:00 AM CCT, October 15, 2020, to all parties delivering to meters east of Burrillville Compressor Station (Burrillville), with the exception of those Operational Balancing Agreements required by FERC regulations, on the AGT system.

This OFO does not affect the ability of AGT to receive or deliver quantities of gas for scheduled nominations to any customer or pipeline.

During the effectiveness of this OFO, all parties delivering to meters east of Burrillville must be balanced such that actual deliveries of gas out of the system must be equal to or less than scheduled deliveries. The penalty shall apply to each dekatherm of actual delivery quantities that exceeds the greater of 2,000 Dth or 102% of scheduled delivery quantities. The penalty will be equal to three times the daily Platts Gas Daily "Daily Price Survey" posting for the High Common price for "Algonquin, city-gates" for the day on which such violation occurred as indicated in AGT's General Terms and Conditions Section 26.8. In addition, AGT will not permit retroactive nominations to avoid an OFO penalty (except for primary firm no-notice nominations). Additionally, parties with meters located downstream of Burrillville will not be allowed to utilize overtakes at meters located upstream of Burrillville to offset undertakes at meters located east of Flatwoods.

AGT may be required to issue an hourly OFO pursuant to General Terms and Conditions Section 26.7(d) to impose further restrictions in order to maintain the operational integrity of the system.

As previously posted AGT, requests that customers/point operators on AGT be aware of the impact non-ratable hourly takes from the system may have in causing delivery pressures reaching lower than desired levels. As a reminder, AGT's system is not designed to sustain delivery pressures above contract levels while making non-ratable/accelerated deliveries above scheduled quantities for more than 6 consecutive hours, to be followed by flows below scheduled quantity for the balance of any 24 hour period.

Furthermore, if customers/point operators don't manage hourly takes from the system, 1) delivery pressures will be impacted and /or 2) AGT may be required to impose further restrictions or courses of action in order to maintain the operational integrity of the system.

AGT may be required to issue system specific and/or hourly OFO's pursuant to General Terms and Conditions Section 26.7(d) to impose further restrictions in order to maintain the operational integrity of the system.

In addition, AGT will not permit retroactive nominations to avoid an OFO penalty.

This OFO will remain in effect until further notice.

Please contact your Operations Account Representative should you have any questions.
