Specifically, Great Lakes proposes to abandon a 4,000 horsepower compressor unit, Unit 1103, located on Great Lakes' system at the Boyne Falls Compressor Station. Great Lakes states that continued use of this compressor unit is unnecessary due to a rearrangement of station facilities whereby the remaining compressor units now operate in parallel instead of in a series. Great Lakes declares that this rearrangement was made to eliminate piping vibrations, component failures, and other operating concerns. Great Lakes avers that there is no significant impact on throughput from the proposed abandonment of Unit 1103 due in part because the other compressor units at the station have upgraded aerodynamic assemblies to accommodate parallel operation of the compressor units. Great Lakes asserts that no service to existing customers will be terminated or otherwise adversely impacted as a result of the proposed abandonment. Great Lakes proposes to maintain Unit 1103 in a salable condition for eventual resale.
Any questions regarding the application should be directed to M. Catharine Davis, Associate General Counsel, Great Lakes Gas Transmission Limited Partnership, Texas Street, Houston, Texas 77002-2761, telephone (832) 320-5509, or fax (832) 320-6509.

Any person filing to intervene or the Commission's staff may, pursuant to section 157.205 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) (18 CFR 157.205) file a protest to the request.

If a protest is filed and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a protest, the instant request shall be treated as an application for authorization pursuant to section 7 of the NGA.
