Cheyenne Plains states in its filing, that the proposed Yuma Lateral is being constructed in response to the existing demand for pipeline capacity to transport natural gas from production areas in the Niobrara Reservoir to additional markets. Furthermore, Cheyenne Plains believes that further development of the Niobrara Reservoir gas supply will help replace lost production resulting from disruptions to Gulf of Mexico natural gas production caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita; thus helping to alleviate current nationwide gas supply concerns. Cheyenne Plains indicates the proposed Yuma Lateral will prevent the shutting in of natural gas production and help avoid the permanent loss of future production. Finally, Cheyenne Plains states that these proposed facilities will have no significant adverse environmental impacts.
Any person or the Commission's Staff may, within 45 days after the issuance of the instant notice by the Commission, file pursuant to Rule 214 of the Commission's Procedural Rules (18 CFR 385.214) a motion to intervene or notice of intervention and, pursuant to Section 157.205 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) (18 CFR 157.205) a protest to the request. If no protest is filed within the time allowed therefore, the proposed activity shall be deemed to be authorized effective the day after the time allowed for protest. If a protest is filed and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a protest, the instant request shall be treated as an application for authorization pursuant to Section 7 of the NGA.
