Take notice that on September 10, 2004, Southern Natural Gas Company Start Printed Page 56208(Southern), Post Office Box 2563, Birmingham, Alabama 35202-2563, filed in Docket No. CP04-410-000, an application pursuant to sections 157.20 and 157.216 of the Commission's Regulations for authorization to abandon in place a portion of its Montgomery-Columbus pipeline located in Tuscaloosa, Hale, Bibb, and Perry Counties Alabama pursuant to Southern's blanket certificate of public convenience and necessity issued in Docket No. CP82-406-000, all as more fully set forth in the request on file with the Commission and open to pubic inspection.
Specifically, Southern seeks to abandon approximately 22.066 miles of 12-inch pipeline between mile post 29.084 (Duncanville Compressor Station) and mile post 51.150 (Brent and Centerville Gate) on its Montgomery-Columbus Pipeline. Southern states that the pipeline segment is old and in need of extensive repair and that the abandonment will reduce costs resulting from replacement and maintenance. Southern states that this segment of line has not been used to provide transportation service for any customers during the past 12 months and, therefore, no customer consents are required.
Any questions concerning this application may be directed to John C. Griffin, Senior Counsel, at (205) 325-7133, or Patrick B. Pope, Vice President and General Counsel, at (205) 325-7626.
