Williston Basin requests authorization for the abandonment of three existing natural gas storage injection/withdrawal wells in the Baker Storage Field, Fallon County, Montana. The proposed wells to be abandoned are Well Nos. 136, 195, and 287. Williston Basin states that these wells are old and have been shut-in. Williston Basin believes the abandonment will have no effect on the certificated maximum deliverability of 114,815 Mcf per day of the Baker Storage Field. In conjunction with the proposed abandonment, Williston Basin will also abandon the field meter station associated with Well No. 195 and a total of approximately 0.8 miles of field storage line associated with the three wells. The abandonment of the meter station and storage field lines will be performed pursuant to Williston Basin's blanket certificate authorized under Docket Nos. CP82-487-000, et al.
