Start Preamble March 18, 2009.

Take notice that on March 11, 2009, ANR Pipeline Company (ANR), 717 Texas Street, Houston, Texas 77002, filed in Docket No. CP09-78-000, an application, pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.208(b) of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, to reconfigure compressor operations and natural gas flow at its Eunice compressor station in Acadia Parish, Louisiana, under ANR's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-480-000,[1] all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to the public for inspection.

ANR proposes to enhance operations at the Eunice compressor station by altering station piping to make Eunice bi-directional and by reconfiguring two 12,000 horsepower compressor units to permit operations under low-flow conditions. ANR states that its proposed reconfiguration of the Eunice compressor station would allow ANR to provide incremental firm backhaul transportation service to customers in ANR's Southeast markets. ANR also states that the proposed reconfiguration would allow for an additional mode of operation while retaining existing capabilities. ANR refers to this project as the Southeast Backhaul Expansion Project. Finally, ANR states that it would cost approximately $17,200,000 to reconfigure the Eunice compressor station.

Any questions concerning this application may be directed to Dean Ferguson, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, ANR Pipeline Company, 717 Texas Street, Houston, Texas 77002, telephone at (832) 320-5503, facsimile at (832) 320-6503, or via e-mail: .
