Start Preamble January 12, 2005.

Take notice that on January 5, 2005, Columbia Gulf Transmission Company (Columbia Gulf), 2603 Augusta, Houston, Texas 77057-5637, filed in Docket No. CP05-44-000, an application pursuant to §§ 157.205, 157.208, and 157.216 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, and Columbia Gulf's blanket certificate authorization granted in Docket No. CP83-496-000,[1] for authorization to replace 9.39 miles of its 30- and 36-inch pipeline designated as Mainlines 100, 200, and 300, located in Williamson and Davidson counties, Tennessee, due to a Department of Transportation (DOT) class location change of the pipeline. Columbia Gulf states that as a result of recent population density surveys required by DOT, it has determined that in order to maintain the current maximum operating pressure of the pipeline, the existing pipeline must be replaced by a heavier walled pipeline. Columbia Gulf does not propose the addition of new services or any changes to existing service as a result of the replacement. Columbia Gulf also seeks approval to abandon by removal an equivalent length of existing like sized transmission pipeline and appurtenances of its Mainlines 100, 200, and 300, which is being replaced. The pipeline will be replaced with an approximate like amount and a like size pipeline. The construction is proposed to take place within an existing right-of-way, is estimated to cost $15.6-million, and will involve a typical lift and lay procedure, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

Any questions concerning this application may be directed to counsel for Columbia Gulf, Frederic J. George, Senior Attorney, Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation, P.O. Box 1273, Charleston West Virginia 25325-1273; telephone (304) 357-2359, fax (304) 357-3206.
