Take notice that on July 5, 2005, Great Lakes Gas Transmission Limited Partnership (Great Lakes) 5250 Corporate Drive, Troy, Michigan 48098, filed in Docket No. CP05-390-000, a prior notice request pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.208 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) and Great Lakes' blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP90-2053,[1] for authorization to inspect, repair and/or replace certain sections of its 36-inch outside-diameter natural gas mainline (100 Line) in Itasca, Aitkin and St. Louis Counties, Minnesota, which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

Specifically, Great Lakes will repair or replace up to 59 anomalies at 32 locations along its pipeline, identified by a Magnetic Flux Leakage In-line Inspection Tool as being possibly deteriorated by corrosion. Great Lakes states that the proposed project activities must be completed utilizing additional work space outside of Great Lakes' existing right of way due to the presence of unstable saturated soils in the project areas and the proximity of its 200 line (loop line) to the areas of the 100 line that requires inspection, remediation, and possible replacement.[2] Great Lakes estimates the total cost at up to $16 million.

Any questions concerning this application may be directed to John J. Wallbillich, Vice President, Legal and Environmental Affairs, Great Lakes Gas Transmission Company, 5250 Corporate Drive, Troy, Michigan 48098 at (248) 205-7426.
