To accomplish this, Natural would construct and operate a 16-inch tap; approximately 530 feet of 12-inch diameter pipeline; a metering platform; a dual 8-inch meter on the metering platform; and such other appurtenant facilities required to effect the interconnects to deliver up to 200,000 Dth/day of natural gas from its UTOS Lateral to Bridgeline. Natural further states that it would construct approximately 180 feet of 16-inch diameter interconnecting pipeline between the metering facilities located on the platform and the UTOS Lateral. Through the proposed piping, Natural would deliver natural gas from the platform and metering equipment to Bridgeline's existing pipeline system, where Bridgeline has already constructed the tap for this interconnection.
