6.8 Bcf/day nat gas processing capacity still off line
Per DOE: "As of 1:30 pm EDT September 5, 11 processing plants with capacities greater than 100 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) are shut down due to Isaac. However, 8 of these plants are capable of restarting pending resumption of pipeline flows. The shut down plants have a combined capacity of 6.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), and the plants capable of restarting account for 4.0 Bcf/d of this capacity. One of the plants shut down is undamaged and will be capable to restart once power returns. Additionally, there are 6 plants, with a combined capacity of 3.3 Bcf/d, operating at reduced levels, and 4 plants back to normal operations. There are 28 gas processing plants (with a combined processing capacity of 13.5 Bcf/d) with capacities exceeding 100 MMcf/d that are located in the Gulf of Mexico coastal area and in the path of Isaac. The shut-in capacity of the 3 plants currently incapable of restarting due to Isaac accounts for 21 percent of total capacity of plants in Isaac’s path."
