Take notice that on May 16, 2008, Puget Sound Energy, Inc. (Puget), 10885 NE 4th Street, Bellevue, Washington 98009, filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an abbreviated application, pursuant to section 7(b) and 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), as amended, and Part 157 of the Commission's regulations to amend the certificate of public convenience and necessity that was previously issued for its Jackson Prairie Deliverability project on February 5, 2007 (Order) in Docket No. CP06-412-000. Specifically, Puget requests that the Commission authorize minor changes to the previously certificated scope of work for the Deliverability Expansion Project which include eliminating the upgrade and restage of the existing Solar Saturn T1300 turbine-driven compressor unit as well as eliminating the installation of a new slug catcher, new filter separator and new relief valve, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection. The filing may also be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link. Enter the docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to access the document. For assistance, please contact FERC Online Support at FERCOnlineSupport@ferc.gov or toll free at (866) 208-3676, or for TTY, contact (202) 502-8659.
Any questions regarding this application should be directed to Lynn Dahlberg, Manager, Certificates and Tariffs, Northwest Pipeline GP, P.O. Box 58900, Salt Lake City, Utah 84158-900, by telephone at 801-584-6851 or by fax at 801-584-7764.
Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission's rules, 18 CFR 157.9, within 90 days of this Notice the Commission staff will either: complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the Commission's public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding; or issue a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff's issuance of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this proposal. The filing of the Start Printed Page 31450EA in the Commission's public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's FEIS or EA.
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 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.
The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, protests, and interventions via the internet in lieu of paper. See 18 CFR 385.2001(a) (1) (iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site (http://www.ferc.gov) under the “e-Filing” link.
