Take notice that on July 29, 2004, Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation (Transco) filed with the Commission an application under section 7 of the Natural Gas Act to abandon a portion of the firm transportation service provided to Commission of Public Works, Laurens, South Carolina (Laurens) under Transco's Rate Schedule FT.
Transco states that under a service agreement dated February 1, 1992, Transco renders for Laurens firm transportation service under Transco's Rate Schedule FT. The service agreement sets forth the terms and conditions under which Transco provides firm transportation of 8,114 Dt of gas per day for Laurens. Transco explains that, although the firm transportation service is being rendered by Transco pursuant to Transco's blanket certificate authorization under part 284(G) of the Commission's regulations, Transco requires specific section 7(b) abandonment authorization because the subject FT service for Laurens was previously converted from firm sales service to firm transportation service under Transco's Rate Schedule FT pursuant to Transco's revised Stipulation and Agreement in Docket Nos. RP88-68, et al. Transco adds that the settlement provides that pre-granted abandonment shall not apply to such conversions (as further described in Article IV of the Service Agreement). Transco proposes to abandon 2,000 Dt/day of firm transportation service to Laurens effective November 1, 2004.
