Take notice that on September 17, 2004, Northern Natural Gas Company (Northern), 1111 South 103rd Street, Omaha, Nebraska 68103-0330, filed in Docket No. CP04-412-000, a request pursuant to its blanket certificate issued September 1, 1982, under Docket No. CP82-401-000, for authority under Section 157.208 of the Commission's regulations (18 CFR 157.208) to reduce the maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) of the 16-inch diameter Omaha 2nd branchline, located in Sarpy and Douglas Counties, Nebraska.

Northern proposes to reduce the MAOP of the 16-inch diameter Omaha 2nd branchline between milepost 15.448 and milepost 20.700 from 537 psig to 360 psig.
