Seattle Doom! Risk of power outages rises in Puget Sound after Canadian pipeline explosion cuts off natural-gas supply
A pipeline explosion in British Columbia on Tuesday has cut off the flow of Canadian natural gas into Washington, raising the risk of power outages around the state.

Puget Sound Energy (PSE), Avista Corp. and Cascade Natural Gas said Wednesday that their gas supplies had been disrupted due to the explosion that occurred a day earlier and asked their customers to reduce consumption. The three companies serve almost 2.4 million customers combined, mostly in Washington, according to the companies’ websites.

PSE, the state’s largest private energy utility, uses natural gas to generate electricity and said its natural-gas supply from the pipeline was halted between 7 and 8 a.m. Wednesday. The company hasn’t been informed when the flow will resume and is looking to make up for the deficit by tapping all other energy sources that aren’t “already spoken for,” said Duane Henderson, a PSE gas-systems integrity manager.

If the situation isn’t resolved soon and the energy deficit persists, he said the company may be forced to cut power to some customers.

“In order to balance out, we might start seeing some outages,” Henderson said. Possible outages would be limited to “pockets” in some local regions, he added.

PSE asked its customers in a tweet Wednesday to lower their thermostats and limit the use of hot water. In addition to seeking out other energy sources, the company is trying to make up for the shortfall in natural-gas supplies by reducing consumption by 15 percent, Henderson said.

2/3’s of our natural gas comes through this pipeline with no estimated time for repair. Another day and they are going to start turning power off in areas...

Large portions of energy are generated with this gas never mind the heating as we go onto fall time.

Not good

We should know in the next day. They are using stored resources from other areas but that will last a day or two. I guess those wind towers east of the mountains are not helping....

Apparently at least some people in Washington state are anticipating real delays in bulk deliveries, this from less than an hour ago:

Waste Management said it's suspending garbage collection until further notice in the Seattle region because its trucks also run on natural gas.

A lot of buses run on natural gas, too, right?

(edit) and a lot of other vehicles

I turned my thermostat down 3 degrees last night and my wife asked why? She's always cold. I told her and she said "well I really doubt anyone else is turning down their stats so why would one person matter..."

I love her... whatever

A long time ago I read that residential use of resources is only like 6% of the total. The rest is transportation, agriculture, industry, etc.

Don't know if that's still true but it made me feel differently about water use and simple things like lights.

natural gas is one of the cheapest methods of generating electricity. The generating plants are easy to build - just a building housing a burner, a turbine, and a chimney, with a transformer station outside.

I live 10 miles south of the explosion site.

The latest I have heard is that there was leak in the pipeline and a pocket of gas formed underground then exploded.

update: I just heard that the damaged pipeline has already been repaired and the gas is about to start flowing again.

They're not soy boys up here in northern BC. We giver and giter' done.

Doom canceled.

They haven't repaired it yet, but they are using a secondary line.

Sorry, the story keeps changing. I've seen a picture of the blast site. It's a big smoldering crater and there is no heavy equipment around, not even a welder's truck.

Meanhwile, the RCMP is involved and terrorism is not ruled out.

The amount of gas used to keep deep fryers hot at a restaurant when not in use is probably enough for 10 homes.

Good, I live in a small town called Seabeck Washington. It is beautiful and simple (google it). I hope the lights do go out in Seattle, and all the comunist libs move out of this state. We are sick of them moving into our small towns.
