Any questions concerning this joint application may be directed to either Ms. Christine M. Odell, Manager, Regulated Pipelines, Western Gas Resources, Inc., MIGC, Inc, MGTC, Inc., 1099 18th Street, Suite 1200, Denver, CO 80202, at (303) 252-6062; or Mr. Richard Derryberry, Director, Regulatory Affairs, Colorado Interstate Gas Company, P.O.

MIGC's and CIG's joint application states that on October 1, 1996, MIGC and CIG entered into a capacity lease agreement wherein CIG agreed to lease to MIGC approximately 50,000 Mcf/day of capacity on a segment of its Powder River Lateral pipeline located in Converse County, Wyoming. The lease agreement had a ten year term commencing October 1, 1996. The capacity lease agreement expires by its terms on October 1, 2006. Accordingly, MIGC and CIG are seeking the appropriate Commission authorizations for the termination of the lease agreement in this instant application.

There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the below listed comment date, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit 14 copies of filings made with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding.

However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest.

Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commenters will be placed on the Commission's environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission's environmental review process. Environmental commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commenters will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission (except for the mailing of environmental documents issued by the Commission) and will not have the right to seek court review of the Commission's final order.

Motions to intervene, protests and comments may be filed electronically via the internet in lieu of paper; see, 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site under the “e-Filing” link. The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings.

Comment Date: September 18, 2006.
