Specifically, EPNG proposes to decrease the existing MAOP of Line No. 20108 from 715 psig to 266 psig and Line No. 2029 from 650 psig to 430 psig. EPNG also proposes to decrease the existing design capacity on Line No. 2029 from 34 MMcf/d to 27 MMcf/d.

If no protest is filed within the time allowed therefore, the proposed activity shall be deemed to be authorized effective the day after the time allowed for protest.
