other notice - tropical storm update


4:00 p.m. september 27, 2002 - venice gathering system ("vgs") has received notice from venice energy services company, l.l.c. ("vesco") that based on the current assessment, vesco hopes to begin starting up the plant on sunday morning (september 29, 2002).


vesco is attempting to place necessary equipment back in operation that would enable it to accept gas from vgs and redeliver unprocessed gas to its downstream interconnects.  vesco currently plans to begin accepting gas at 12:01 a.m. on saturday (september 28, 2002).  assuming the necessary equipment is returned to service, vesco's acceptance of gas will be subject to its downstream interconnects accepting the unprocessed gas.


at this time vgs is accepting intraday 2 nominations for gas day 27.   please contact mary creel to obtain permission prior to initiating deliveries into vgs.  mary can be reached by pager at (800) 642-1777.
