Heater at Bacton temporarily unavailable

BBL Company would like to inform you that one of the four heaters on the BBL-facilities at Bacton is not available in the coming weeks due to a technical failure. The heaters are necessary to heat the BBL-gas before it can enter the National Grid-system. BBL Company is able to meet all its contractual obligations towards BBL-shippers with the three heaters presently in operation. As a result there is no impact on gas flows. The current expectation is that the fourth heater will be available again by the end of January 2012.
