Take notice that on May 31, 2000, TCP Gathering Company (TCP Gathering), 555 Seventeenth Street, Denver, Colorado 80202-3918, filed in Docket No. CP00-372-000, an application pursuant to Section 7(b) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), and Section 157.18 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) Regulations for permission and approval to abandon interstate transportation service, and certain natural gas facilities located in San Juan County, Utah and San Miguel County, Colorado, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection. This filing may be viewed on the web at http://www.ferc.fed.us/online/rims.htm. Call (202)208-2222 for assistance.
TCP Gathering explains that, upon receipt of abandonment authorization, it would reconfigure its facilities, consisting of approximately 28 miles of 8-inch and 4-inch pipeline, to connect them to an existing gathering system owned and operated by TCP Gathering's new owner Tom Brown, Inc. (Tom Brown) and would operate the facilities as gathering facilities exempt from the Commission's regulation pursuant to Section 1(b) of the NGA.
Currently, TCP Gathering has only one shipper, with whom it has an interruptible transportation contract. The shipper's gas transported from the shipper's well in the Little Valley field in San Juan County, Utah for delivery to Rocky Mountain Natural Gas company, TCP Gathering's previous owner, in San Miguel County, Colorado. TCP Gathering states that, upon obtaining the requested abandonment authority, it will construct an interconnection with Tom Brown's Lisbon Field gathering system in San Juan County, Utah, and plans to gather gas from wells along the length of TCP Gathering's system in Utah and Colorado for delivery to the Lisbon Field where the gas will be processed in the Lisbon Plant.
