Start Preamble June 11, 2008.

Take notice that on June 2, 2008, Equitrans, L.P. (Equitrans), 225 North Shore Drive, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15212, filed in Docket No. CP08-416-000, an application pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.216 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, to abandon four storage injection/withdrawal wells in its Logansport Storage Reservoir in Marion County, WV, under Equitrans' blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP96-532-000, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to the public for inspection.

Equitrans proposes to abandon four injection/withdrawal wells in its Logansport Storage Reservoir [1] as part of an April 10, 2008, settlement agreement with the Consolidation Coal Company (Consol), who owns and operates a longwall coal mining operation (the Robinson Run Mine) in Marion County, WV, which is in close proximity to Equitrans' Logansport Storage Field. Equitrans states that the four injection/withdrawal well bores are in the projected path of Consol's mining operations. Equitrans further states that in order to avoid damage to both Equitrans' wells and Consol's mining equipment, the wells would need to be abandoned and the well casings removed. Equitrans also states that it would cost approximately $261,756 to abandon the four injection/withdrawal wells.

Any questions concerning this application may be directed to Andrew L. Murphy, Vice President, Equitrans, L.P., 225 North Shore Drive, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15212, or telephone 412-395-3358 or facsimile 412-395-3166.
