Start Preamble August 12, 2008.

Take notice that on July 31, 2008, Trunkline Gas Company, LLC (Trunkline), 5444 Westheimer Road, Houston, Texas 77056-5306, filed in Docket No. CP08-448-000, an application, as supplemented on August 11, 2008, pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.216(b) of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, to abandon by sale approximately 29 miles of 10-inch diameter pipeline and appurtenant facilities (the Quicksand Lateral facilities) to Enerfin Field Services LLC (Enerfin) in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana, under Trunkline's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP83-84-000,[1] all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to the public for inspection.

Trunkline states that Enerfin would use the Quicksand Lateral facilities as part of its nonjurisdictional gathering system. Trunkline also states that the Quicksand Lateral facilities transported an average of 2MMcf of natural gas per day in 2007. Trunkline further states that it cost approximately $60,000 to upgrade the Quicksand Lateral facilities and approximately $220,000 in additional annual expenses to operate and maintain the facilities (which exceeds the estimated annual revenue). Additionally, Trunkline states that the Quicksand Lateral facilities do not have any long-term viability to Trunkline, and there is no foreseeable commercial development in the area to support retaining the facilities as part of Trunkline's pipeline system. Finally, Trunkline states that it would cost approximately $21,850,000 to replicate the Quicksand Lateral facilities based upon 2008 construction prices, and requests that the purchase price should remain confidential.
