This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Take notice that on July 23, 2004, Pogo Producing Company (Pogo) filed an Application for Emergency Relief pursuant to Section 5(e) of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), 43 U.S.C. 1334(e), requesting an emergency order allocating pipeline capacity on Southern Natural Gas Company (Southern) upstream of the Toca, Louisiana processing plant (Toca Plant) to avoid unnecessary curtailment or shut-in of OCS oil and gas production connected into Southern's facilities beginning August 1, 2004 and for so long as the maintenance shut-down of the Toca No. 1 processing unit (Toca 1 Unit) continues, expected to be two to four weeks.
In the Application, Pogo states that because of reduced processing capability at the Toca plant operated by Enterprise Operating Partners, LLC, during the period of maintenance shut-down, Southern has notified all shippers that it intends to institute a 25 degree hydrocarbon dewpoint (HDP) limit under its FERC Gas Tariff at the Enterprise, Mississippi Monitoring Point. Such a limitation will require curtailments of oil and gas production on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) upstream of the Toca Plant. Pogo requests an emergency allocation of pipeline receipt point capacity upstream of the Toca Plant that will maximize OCS oil and gas production during the period of the Toca Unit 1 shut-down. Specifically, Pogo requests that the Commission, in consultation with the Secretary of Energy, enter an order directing Southern to cause gas supplies that enter Southern's system at the OCS interconnects with the Viosca Knoll Gathering System and Mississippi Canyon Pipeline Company to be diverted by setting the flow rate at those two pipeline interconnects at zero during the period of the Toca 1 Unit shut-down.Start Printed Page 45698
