CORRECTED - (OFFICIAL)-Force majeure at NGPL Nebraska natgas line

(Company spokesman officially clarifies paragraph 4 to show Knight Inc operates the line, not Kinder Morgan)

NEW YORK, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Kinder Morgan KMP.N said in a website posting Monday a force majeure event occurred at NGPL’s natural gas pipeline compressor station in Gage County, Nebraska, due to “a breakage to machinery.”

The company said it was in the process of making repairs and expected the unit back in service Wednesday.

The near 10,000-mile NGPL gas line transports gas from major United States and Canadian producing areas to Midwest markets as well as other pipelines serving North America. The line has the capacity to carry 5.8 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas.

NGPL is an interstate gas transmission system that Knight Inc operates and owns a 20 percent interest in. Knight Inc, formerly known as Kinder Morgan Inc, owns the general partner and limited interests in Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP.

In separate postings over the weekend, the company said force majeure had been lifted on its Illinois lateral after work was completed, while its Columbia Gulf-Chalkley delivery point in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, had limited deliveries.

Late last week, compressor station 343 in Liberty County, Texas had power restored and leaks on a section of the Louisiana line were repaired following Hurricane Ike.

A force majeure remained in effect due to the continued shutdown of compressor station 342, also in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

Also in a separate posting, the Rockies Express Pipeline expected its PEPL-Audrain delivery point in Missouri would be available for service Monday following hydrostatic testing on the line.

The ANR delivery point in Brown County, Kansas was expected back in service over the weekend. (Reporting by Eileen Moustakis)
