Start Preamble April 27, 2006.

Take notice that on April 25, 2006, Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America (Natural) tendered for filing a petition for waiver of certain provisions of Natural's FERC Gas Tariff, Sixth Revised Volume No.1, to assist shippers in responding to a situation which will temporarily reduce capacity on a portion of Natural's Amarillo system.

Natural states that as part of its Pipeline Integrity Management Program, Natural is evaluating sections of its Amarillo Mainline No. 3 from its Compressor Station No. 110 in Henry County, Illinois (CS10) approximately 106 miles to Natural's Compressor Station 113 near Joliet, Illinois in Will County. Natural states that these sections are part of Natural's Segment No. 14.

Natural states that it plans to run an in-line inspection tool for one day through a portion of its Segment 14 on May 9, 2006. On May 24, 2006, Natural states that it plans to run a second in-line inspection tool for one day through the same portion of its Segment 14. Natural points out that these two pig runs will each necessitate a reduction in available capacity through the affected area on days when the inspection tool runs take place. Because it is possible additional inspection operations may be needed, Natural asks that the waivers apply during all outage periods that may occur between May 9, 2006 to May 31, 2006.

Natural requests that the Commission grant the subject petition for waiver by May 5, 2006, to enable Natural's shippers to plan their nominations for the weeks of May 8 and May 22 in advance of any service reductions related to the two planned outage periods.
