Take notice that on March 2, 2011, Texas Eastern Transmission, LP (Texas Eastern), Post Office Box 1642, Houston, Texas 77251-1642, filed in Docket No. CP11-118-000, an application pursuant to Sections 157.205 and 157.216 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, to abandon in place an inactive pipeline segment in West Cameron Blocks 566, 565, and 548, offshore Louisiana, under Texas Eastern's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-535-000 [1] , all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to the public for inspection.

Texas Eastern proposes to abandon in place approximately 4.5 miles of 20-inch diameter pipeline (Segment) on its Line 41-A-6 in West Cameron Blocks 566, 565, and 548, offshore Louisiana.
