GPPL seeks authorization to construct and operate facilities to receive natural gas from and deliver natural gas to Golden Triangle Storage, Inc.

Specifically, GPPL proposes to construct and operate metering facilities at a new interconnect between its system and the GTS system to provide GPPL with a bidirectional flow capability of 250 MMcf/d and a design minimum flow rate of approximately 20 MMcf/d., and include three 8-inch meter runs, with one of the meters serving as a fully operational reference spare meter, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

The interconnection facilities comprise a 16-inch tee and valve on GPPL's 42-inch mainline facilities. GTS will construct the meter station, appurtenant facilities and the 16-inch pipeline connecting the tap and the meter. GPPL will operate these facilities. GPPL will also provide, own and operate telecommunication equipment at a concrete pad at the site. All other interconnection facilities will be owned and operated by GTS.

GPPL estimates the cost of the project to be $710,000. GTS has agreed to reimburse GPPL for its actual direct and indirect costs, including direct and allocated overhead, incurred in designing and installing the proposed facilities.
