Start Preamble December 10, 2004.

Take notice that on November 30, 2004, Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation (Transco), tendered for filing an application under section 7 of the Natural Gas Act to abandon a portion of the firm transportation service provided to Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company (Eastern Shore) under Transco's Rate Schedule FT.

In its application, Transco states that it currently renders for Eastern Shore, under that certain service agreement dated February 1, 1992, firm transportation service under Transco's Rate Schedule FT. Transco states that the service agreement sets forth the terms and conditions under which Transco provides firm transportation of 2,989 Dt of gas per day for Eastern Shore. Transco also states 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 (instead of simply abandoning the service automatically under section 284.221(d) of the regulations) because the subject FT service for Eastern Shore 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., and that settlement provides that pre-granted abandonment shall not apply to such conversions (as further described in Article IV of the Service Agreement). Transco indicates that it is more fully explained in the application, Transco proposes to abandon 174 Dt/day of firm transportation service to Eastern Shore.
