Personally I am amazed that the gas for the mid and lower section Of New Mexico is coming from Texas Many places in NM have Huge natural gas reserves. It must be the areas with the gas are selling it out of state and NM customers are having to buy ours from Texas . Gotta love the economics that causes problems like this .
New Mexico Gas Company is speaking for the first time about why tens of thousands of New Mexicans have no natural gas service. The company blames supply and demand, and a lack of pressure to push the gas through the pipelines. Power blackouts in Texas have cut off power to compressors in West Texas that feed gas into New Mexico. With the low pressure and high demand for natural gas, the gas utility says it's impossible to supply everyone. Up to 32,000 customers across the state are doing without natural gas.
Thousands of New Mexicans are still without heat Friday as widespread natural gas outages swept through the state Thursday and some families may not see their service restored until early next week.
According to a press release from the New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management service should be restored to Alamogordo, La Luz, Tularosa, Red River and Questa by late today. Taos, Bernalillo and Placitas should have service by Saturday and Espanola should be complete by Sunday or Monday.
