NEW YORK, Sept 2 (Reuters) - The operator of the Henry Hub, the benchmark trading point for NYMEX natural gas futures, said Tuesday initial assessments of the Hub complex revealed no serious damage as a result of Hurricane Gustav, and lifted its declaration of force majeure at several receipt points.
Sabine Pipe Line LLC said it would be accepting nominations for gas flow beginning at 9 p.m. CDT. However, due to the unavailability of compression at the complex, the north and south compressor stations remained offline until commercial power is restored, Sabine said in a website posting.
Sabine, a unit of oil major Chevron Corp (CVX.N), operates a 131-mile pipeline that transports natural gas between Erath, Louisiana and Port Arthur, Texas. (Reporting by Eileen Moustakis)
