Take notice that on June 29, 2005 Southern Natural Gas Company (Southern), PO Box 2563, Birmingham, Alabama 35202-2563, filed in Docket No. CP05-388-000 an application pursuant to section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), and Part 157 of the Commission's regulations requesting a certificate of public convenience and necessity for the authorization to construct and operate a total of 176.43 miles of 24-inch and 30-inch diameter pipeline, three new compressor stations totaling approximately 31,050 horsepower, and other appurtenant facilities. Southern states that this project, known as the Cypress Pipeline Project (located in Georgia and Florida), will be constructed in three phases with phased in-service dates of May 1, 2007, May 1, 2009, and May 1, 2010. Southern states that the project will be able to provide 500,000 Mcf/d of firm transportation capacity. Southern explains that it has entered into precedent agreements with BG LNG Services, L.L.C., Florida Power Corporation d/b/a Progress Energy Florida, Inc., and the City of Austell, Georgia for firm, long-term transportation services, 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 http://www.ferc.gov 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 Patrick B. Pope, Vice President & General Counsel, Southern Natural Gas Company, PO Box 2563, Birmingham, Alabama 35202-2563, or call (205) 325-7126.

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.
