Start Preamble

Take notice that on March 22, 2011, El Paso Natural Gas Company (El Paso), Post Office Box 1087, Colorado Springs, CO 80944, filed a prior notice request pursuant to sections 157.205(b) and 157.208(f) of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's regulations and pursuant to El Paso's Part 157 blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-435-000. El Paso proposes to increase the certificated Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP) of a 1.2 mile, 2-inch outer-diameter segment of pipe located in El Paso County, Texas. Specifically, El Paso requests authorization to increase the certificated MAOP of a segment of Line No. 2053 running from the El Paso-Start Printed Page 18757Douglas Line to the U.S. Detention Prison from its currently certificated MAOP of 700 psig to 837 psig. El Paso avers the increase in MAOP will reduce operational and maintenance cost by eliminating the need to monitor and maintain pressure control and overpressure protection equipment. El Paso also states that there will be no effect to capacity on either the segment being increased or the remainder of Line No. 2053, all as more fully set forth in the application, which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
