Specifically, CIG proposes to abandon, by removal, all of the aboveground facilities including the following facilities: Five abandoned-in-place 1,320 Horsepower compressor units, office, shop, warehouse, auxiliary building, compressor building, foundations and basements, as well as other facilities. CIG proposes to remove all above-ground facilities with the exception of two functioning pigging facilities, which service the existing and operating Line No. 3A (Fourway to Kit Carson Line) and Line No. 193A (Plum Creek Lateral). CIG declares that the proposed removal activities will take place entirely within the station yard. CIG estimates the cost to complete the removal of the Fourway Compressor Station to be approximately $3.8 million. CIG avers that subsequent to the abandonment in place, the Fourway facilities have been vandalized. To deter future vandalism, CIG believes that it is prudent to remove the aboveground facilities at the station.
