Take notice that on May 21, 2007, and supplemented on June 1, 2007, Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation (Columbia), 1700 MacCorkle Avenue, Charleston, West Virginia 25314, filed in Docket No. CP07-388-000, a prior notice request pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.208 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations under the Natural Gas Act for authorization to increase the maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) of three of its existing transmission pipelines, located in Guernsey County, Ohio, all as more fully set forth in the application, which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

Specifically, Columbia proposes to increase the MAOP on its Lines O-1582, consisting of 2.1 miles of 2- and 6-inch diameter pipeline, O-1441, consisting of 0.43 mile of 4- and 6-inch diameter pipeline, and a portion of O-323, consisting of 2.03 miles of 3-, 4-, and 8-inch diameter pipeline, from the current MAOP of 50 psig to a new MAOP of 99 psig and to operate the subject pipelines at the higher pressure. Columbia states that the proposed uprate creates a capacity of 0.9 MMcf/d. Columbia asserts that the increase of the MAOP will allow Columbia to maintain current firm contractual obligations, as well as improve the efficient use of these facilities by increasing their capacity potential via the higher operating pressures. Columbia does not propose any pipeline construction or replacement as a result of the proposed uprate.
Any questions regarding the application should be directed to Victoria J. Hamilton, Certificate Lead, Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation, P.O. Box 1273, Charleston, West Virginia 25325-1273, or call at (304) 357-2297.
