Take notice that on November 13, 2007, DCP Midstream, LP (DCP Midstream) 370 17th Street, Suite 2500, Denver, Colorado 80202 filed in Docket No. CP08-22-000, under Rule 207(a)(2) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.207(a)(2)(2007), a petition for a declaratory order requesting that the Commission disclaim jurisdiction over certain natural gas facilities DCP Midstream would purchase from Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation (Transco),[1] because such facilities perform a gathering function and would be exempt from the Commission's jurisdiction under section 1(b) of the Natural Gas Act.

DCP Midstream states that it would purchase Transco's South Texas facilities, consisting of approximately 135.6 miles of natural gas pipelines and related meter stations, valves, miscellaneous field and tie-in piping, other appurtenances along the pipeline segments, and related realty and easement rights. These facilities would handle unprocessed natural gas in Hidalgo, Willacy, Starr, Brooks, and Jim Wells Counties, Texas, and would be incorporated into DCP Midstream's existing south Texas gathering facilities for processing at DCP Midstream's LaGloria Processing Plant.

Any person desiring to intervene or to protest this filing must file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214). Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Any person wishing to become a party must file a notice of intervention or motion to intervene, as appropriate. Such notices, motions, or protests must be filed on or before the date as indicated below. Anyone filing an intervention or protest must serve a copy of that document on the Applicant. Anyone filing an intervention or protest on or before the intervention or protest date need not serve motions to intervene or protests on persons other than the Applicant.

The Commission encourages electronic submission of protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the “eFiling” link at Persons unable to file electronically should submit an original and 14 copies of the protest or intervention to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426.
