The balancing restriction in place through April 22, 2015 will be lifted effective April 23, 2015 at 8 a.m. However, if Clay Basin does not resume normal operations on April 23rd, then the restriction may need to be extended.

As provided for in QGC's tariffs, supply versus usage needs to stay within the normal +/-5% daily tolerance window (see note below) to help avoid imposing future daily balancing restrictions.

Also, imbalance payback needs to be nominated to accurately reflect your day-to-day plans to manage contract imbalances.

As provided for in QGC's Utah and Wyoming Natural Gas Tariffs (Utah tariff section 5.09, and Wyoming tariff section 5.06), QGC will allow +/- 5% of a customer’s volumes delivered from upstream pipelines as a daily imbalance tolerance window.  However, QGC may require customers or nominating parties to adjust deliveries or usage that contributes to an aggregate imbalance that would 1) require QGC to take action to maintain system integrity, or 2) reasonably be expected to force QGC to materially alter its prior day’s planned level of a) gas purchases, b) QGC production, or c) storage injections or withdrawals.

QUESTAR GAS - Gas Supply Communication - Balancing Restrictions effective April 4-22, 2015

The following restriction, as provided for in Questar Gas Company's Utah Natural Gas Tariff (Utah Tariff) Section 5.09 and Wyoming Natural Gas Tariff (Wyoming Tariff) Section 5.06, is required due to Questar Pipeline Company's upcoming Clay Basin test:

       April 4 through April 8, 2015:                
       A transportation customer's supply must not exceed usage by more than a 0% tolerance, i.e. no packing.

       April 9 through April 22, 2015:                     
       A transportation customer's supply must match its usage within a +/-5% tolerance window.

Imbalance payback should not be nominated, unless approved by Questar Gas' Gas Supply personnel on a case-by-case basis.

After aggregation of imbalances at an agent level, and after the allowed trading period, penalties as outlined in the Utah and Wyoming Tariffs will be assessed for those imbalances remaining outside of the balancing tolerances outlined above.

Thank you for your attention in this matter.

Effective April 23, 2015 through August 31, 2015, Questar Gas Company will allow agents with southern system customers that are able to receive gas at Indianola (Map 166) to nominate the lesser of 1,015 Dth per day or actual total usage for each customer. 

The April 23rd effective start date is contingent upon QPC returning its Clay Basin storage facility to normal operations on that day.
