Maintenance on the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) that began recently has led to production declines in the Appalachian and Northeast regions, according to PointLogic Energy. Pipeline maintenance began on Tuesday and is expected to last through 25 July. The maintenance is part of the REX East-to-West Capacity Enhancement Project, which includes the installation of new compressor stations and additional power at existing stations. At maximum, an estimated 1.8 billion ft3/d of flows between Clarington, Ohio, and Shelbyville, Indiana will be curtailed.
Northeast and Appalachian natural gas production dropped 1.0 billion ft3/d (4%) on Tuesday, the day the maintenance began, and then another 0.3 billion ft3/d on Wednesday.
