Take notice that on March 18, 2004, Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline, Inc. (Southern Star), 3800 Frederica Street, Owensboro, Kentucky 42301, filed in Docket No. CP04-85-000 an application pursuant to section 7(b) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) for permission and approval to abandon compression facilities located in Kiowa County, Kansas.

Southern Star states that it proposes to abandon seven 1600 horsepower engines, appurtenant facilities and auxiliary equipment at the Greensburg compressor station in Kiowa County, Kansas. Southern Star states that the Greensburg station was constructed in 1951 and used to compress gas on the Kansas-Hugoton 26-inch pipeline to Kansas City, Missouri. Southern Star states that the engines are now obsolete and no longer needed since the compression currently available at the Hugoton compressor station in Grant County, Kansas, is more than sufficient to move current contractual volume obligations as well as any anticipated future volumes. Southern Star proposes to abandon above-ground facilities by reclaim with the exception of wells, well houses and a microwave tower. Southern Star further states that below-ground piping will be abandoned in place. Southern Star asserts that the station site is and will continue to be owned and maintained by Southern Star.

Any questions concerning this application may be directed to David N. Roberts, Manager, Regulatory Affairs, at (270) 852-4654.
