Take notice that on March 24, 2010, New York State Electric & Gas Corporation (NYSEG), filed with the Commission an application under section 7(b) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) for authorization to abandon the limited jurisdiction blanket certificate to provide storage services in interstate commerce issued in Docket No. CP97-192-000. NYSEG states that is the owner of the Seneca Lake Storage Project in Schuyler County, New York.
NYSEG states that it has entered into an asset purchase agreement with Inergy Midstream, LLC (Inergy), whereby affiliates of Inergy will acquire all of the surface and subsurface facilities of the Seneca Lake Storage Project. Inergy intends to transfer the storage cavern and West Lateral to its affiliate, Arlington Storage Company, LLC (ASC), and the East Pipeline to another affiliate, Inergy Pipeline East, LLC. In addition, NYSEG intends to, to the extent required, abandon by assignment to ASC the Operational Balancing Agreement entered into by NYSEG in support of its Seneca Lake Storage Project services. Separately, ASC is submitting an application to the Commission for a certificate of public convenience and necessity and related authorizations that would allow it to operate the acquired facilities under its existing FERC tariff to provide interstate storage services at market-based rates.
Any person desiring to intervene or to protest in any of the above proceedings must file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214) on or before 5 p.m. Eastern time on the specified comment date. It is not necessary to separately intervene again in a subdocket related to a compliance filing if you have previously intervened in the same docket. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Anyone filing a motion to intervene or protest must serve a copy of that document on the Applicant. In reference to filings initiating a new proceeding, interventions or protests submitted on or before the comment deadline need not be served on persons other than the Applicant.
