Natural proposes to construct and operate facilities necessary to establish a bi-directional interconnect with KMLP at a new interconnect point in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The facilities include two 30-inch taps, and appurtenances, on Natural's existing Louisiana No. 1 and No. 2 pipelines located south of Highway 82 in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The facilities will interconnect with Natural's system to Leg 2 of KMLP (a one mile 36-inch pipe) and will support Natural's lease of capacity to KMLP previously approved in Docket No. CP06-448-000. This interconnect will allow Natural to receive re-vaporized LNG from KMLP or to deliver natural gas to KMLP. KMLP will install and own bi-directional ultrasonic meters, a gas filter, electronic flow measurement equipment, and monitoring devices. The estimated cost of the project is approximately $1.03 million and all costs associated with the project will be reimbursed by KMLP. The proposed in-service date for the interconnect facilities is September 1, 2008.

Any questions regarding the application should be directed to Norman Watson, Director, Business Development, Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America LLC, 500 Dallas Street, Suite 1000, Houston, Texas 77002, at (713) 369-9219 or Bruce Newsome, Vice President, Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America LLC, 3250 Lacey Road, Suite 700, Downers Grove, Illinois 60515, at (630) 725-3070.
