Take notice that on December 16, 2005, Duke Energy Field Services, LP (DEFS), filed pursuant to Rule 207(a)(2) of the Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, a petition for a declaratory order. In its petition, DEFS requests the Commission to declare that certain Anadarko Basin area facilities to be purchased from Northern Natural Gas Company (Northern) perform a gathering function, and, upon their acquisition will be exempt from the Commission's jurisdiction pursuant to section 1(b) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). The affected assets are Northern's Beaver Wet System, consisting of about 419 miles of Anadarko Basin area pipeline and related compression, dehydration, purification, and delivery point facilities and appurtenances, and DEFS will then simultaneously purchase Saleco from Northern. These facilities handle wet gas for delivery to processing plants and are in various counties in the Texas Panhandle, northwest Oklahoma, and southwest Kansas, all as more fully set forth in the request which is on file with Commission and open to public inspection.
