ANR Pipeline Company; Notice of Request Under Blanket Authorization
Take notice that on January 18, 2013, ANR Pipeline Company (ANR), 717 Texas Street, Houston, Texas 77002-2761, filed in Docket No. CP13-54-000, an application pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.216(b) of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, requesting authorization to abandon an 11,000 rated horsepower compressor unit and appurtenances, located on ANR's system at its Jena Compressor Station in La Salle Parish, Louisiana, and associated mainline capacity. The authorizations are requested under ANR's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-480-000,  all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
ANR proposes to abandon in place Unit 107, with appurtenances, located on ANR's system at ANR's Jena CS in La Salle Parish, Louisiana. This unit was installed under the authority granted in CP70-183.  ANR intends to abandon Unit 107 because it is not needed to provide service, is oversized for current flows, and such abandonment will save on maintenance costs. The proposed abandonment activity will not involve ground disturbance or increases to operational air or noise emissions. The unit was not used to provide service to any of ANR's customers for over two years. The estimated cost to replicate the 11,000 rated horsepower compressor unit proposed to be abandoned is $24,684,000.
