other notice - hurricane update


wednesday october 2, 2002, venice gathering system ("vgs") has received notice from venice energy services company, l.l.c. ("vesco") that the venice gas processing plant, which has been down since tropical storm isidore, will remain shut down due to hurricane lily.  at this time vesco is continuing to accept deliveries from vgs and redeliver unprocessed gas to its downstream pipelines for gas day of wednesday oct 2, 2002.  if hurricane lily causes off-shore platforms to shut-in, vgs will require cuts commensurate with production loss. due to the uncertainty of the ultimate land fall of hurricane lily, the duration of the shut down of the venice plant, and the offshore production interruption, vgs will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates when information becomes available.
