Start Preamble February 20, 2001.

On February 2, 2001, Northern Natural Gas Company (Northern), P.O. Box 3330, Omaha, Nebraska 68103-0330, filed in Docket No. CP98-229-001 a motion to vacate that portion of an order issued December 22, 1998, in Docket No. CP98-229-000 which permitted Northern to abandon by sale to K N Gas Gathering, Inc., (KNGG) its Liberal facilities in Texas County, Oklahoma, and Stevens and Seward County, Kansas, all as more fully set forth in the motion which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection. The filing may be viewed at​online/​rims.htm (call 202-208-2222 for assistance).

Northern states that the order, among other things, permitted it to abandon by sale to KNGG its Liberal facilities. It is stated that the related December 30, 1997 Asset Purchase Agreement, as amended, was assigned to ONEOK, Inc. (ONEOK), but that on June 26, 2000, ONEOK exercised its option to terminate that agreement. Therefore, Northern requests that the Commission vacate that portion of the December 22, 1998, order.

Questions regarding the details of this motion should be directed to Michele Winckowski, at (402)-398-7200.
