Start Preamble May 4, 2010.

Take notice that on April 22, 2010, Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC (Columbia), 5151 San Felipe, Suite 2500, Houston, Texas 77056 filed in Docket No. CP10-164-000, a prior notice request pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.208 of the Commission's regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA). Columbia seeks authorization to increase the Commission-approved maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) on its Line D-531 from 80 pounds per square inch gage (psig) to 99 psig. Line D-531 is located in Wood County, Ohio, and extends from Columbia's Line D-100 to Waterville Gas & Oil Company's (Waterville) facilities in Wood County, Ohio. Columbia proposes to perform these activities under its blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP83-76-000 [22 FERC ¶ 62,029 (1983)], all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

Specifically, the facility at issue (Line D-531) is an approximately 2.5-mile, 4- and 6- inch diameter pipeline extending from Columbia's Line D-100 to an interconnect with Waterville's facilities in Wood County, Ohio. Line D-531 was originally constructed in the 1950s with sections being replaced in 1961, 1963, and 1965. The facilities were originally constructed to serve the City of Waterville and have continued in that operation since they were constructed. Columbia proposes to up-rate the entire pipeline. The proposed increase to the Commission-approved MAOP of Line D-531 is being made to enable Columbia to meet a contractual pressure obligation to Waterville.
