vgs shippers:


vgs continues efforts to bring the system back on line.  since the last update, vgs has had successfully brought back into service the 22" mainline from wd-79a to the venice plant and the 24" mainline from st-151 comp to wd-79a.


additional repairs and/or standup tests remain to occur on the following lines:


  1. standup test on the 26" mainline from st-151 comp to wd-41aux (estimated completion is 2-28-06)
  2. standup test on the 26" mainline from wd-41aux to the venice plant (estimated completion is 2-28-06)
  3. replacement of a 20" subsea check valve in gi-71 (estimated completion is 2-22-06)
  4. standup test on the 20" lateral from st-35d to the subsea tie-in at gi-71 (estimated completion is 2-28-06)


this estimate is dependent on several factors including, but not limited to, availability of repair materials and contractors and weather conditions.


based upon the above, vgs is still unable to take nominations from any receipt points other than the following:
