Take notice that on August 31, 2009, Egan Hub Storage, LLC (Egan Hub), filed in Docket No. CP09-459-000, a prior notice request pursuant to Sections 157.205, 157.208, 157.211, 157.212 and 157.213 of the Commission's regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA), for authorization to construct and operate facilities to connect the Egan Hub system to Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline LLC (KMLP) in Acadia Parish, Louisiana in order to receive and deliver natural gas from and to KMLP, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection. Egan Hub proposes to perform these activities under its blanket certificate issued October 7, 1996, in Docket No. CP96-199-000 [77 FERC ¶ 61,016 (1996)].

Specifically, Egan Hub seeks authorization to construct, own, operate, and maintain a new pipeline tap on its Fourth Cavern Line 85, and associated connecting piping to the edge of the right-of-way, to receive and deliver natural gas at an interconnection with KMLP's interstate pipeline facilities, at a site selected by KMLP. Additionally, Egan Hub will own, operate and maintain a check electronic gas measurement (EGM) facility that KMLP will install at its meter and regulator (M&R) site. KMLP's facilities are designed primarily to receive revaporized liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Sabine Pass LNG, L.P. LNG import terminal to be located in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

Egan Hub also proposes the design and construction of approximately 15 feet of 16-inch diameter pipe, a single 24-inch by 24-inch by 16-inch tee tap and a 16-inch valve. The check EGM, to be constructed by KMLP within its M&R site, is to be owned and operated by Egan Hub. The project area is located within the corridor of Egan Hub's Fourth Cavern Project Line 85 at approximately milepost 6.9 in Acadia Parish, Louisiana. With the exception of the check EGM, the project area is entirely within the proposed workspace previously surveyed and approved for Egan Hub's Fourth Cavern Project. Egan Hub has estimated the total cost of constructing the facilities proposed herein to be $400,000. Egan Hub will bear all costs associated with constructing such facilities. The proposed in-service date for the interconnect facilities is March 1, 2010.
