Start Preamble November 8, 2004.

Take notice that on October 26, 2004, Caledonia Energy Partners, L.L.C. (Caledonia), 3700 Forums Drive, Suite 104, Flower Mound, Texas, 75028, filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an application pursuant to section 7 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) to construct and operate an underground natural gas storage facility in Lowndes and Monroe Counties, Mississippi. Specifically Caledonia proposes to convert a depleted natural gas reservoir, the Caledonia Field, into a high deliverability multi-cycle gas storage field capable of storing 11.7 Bcf of working gas with a maximum withdrawal capacity of 330,000 MMcf per day. The initial interconnect with Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (Tennessee) will be at its Zone-1 500 Leg Mainline. Caledonia seeks to charge market based rates for its services which will include firm and interruptible storage services, as well as an interruptible loan service. The project will include the construction of eight horizontal injection/withdrawal wells, three 3550 horsepower compressors and approximately 1.98 miles of pipe to connect the wells, and to connect the compression facility to the Tennessee interconnect, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection. This filing may be also viewed on the Web at using the “eLibrary” link. Enter the docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to access the document. For assistance, call (202) 502-8659 or TTY, (202) 208-3676.

Any questions regarding this application should be directed to Jim Goetz, Caledonia Energy Partners, L.L.C., 3700 Forums Drive, Suite 104, Flower Mound, Texas, 75028, at (972) 691-3332 or fax (972) 874-8743.

There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit 14 copies of filings made with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding.

However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest.

Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commenters will be placed on the Commission's environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission's environmental review process. Environmental commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commenters will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission (except for the mailing of environmental documents issued by the Commission) and will not have the right to seek court review of the Commission's final order.

Comments, protests and interventions may be filed electronically via the Internet in lieu of paper. See, 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site under the “e-Filing” link.
