FERGUS FALLS, MINN. – Great Plains Natural Gas Co. residential and commercial natural gas customers can return to normal usage immediately. Interruptible customers will be notified by telephone as to when they can resume normal usage.

Great Plains encourages customers to spread the word and check on neighbors and the elderly to ensure all customers are aware they can resume normal usage.

A rupture occurred on a Canadian natural gas transmission line that supplies gas to the Viking Gas Transmission Company, which serves Great Plains customers in Crookston, Vergas, Pelican Rapids, Fergus Falls and Breckenridge, Minn., as well as Wahpeton, N.D.

“We want to thank our customers for responding to our request to curtail usage over the weekend,” said Frank Morehouse, president and CEO of Great Plains. “The reduced usage by our customers, as well as the customers of the other utilities affected by the supply disruption, played an integral role in maintaining service until operations returned to normal.”
