Start Preamble

Take notice that on April 8, 2011, Millennium Pipeline Company, L.L.C. (Millennium), One Blue Hill Plaza, Seventh Floor, P.O. Box 1565, Pearl River, New York 10965, filed in Docket No. CP11-184-000, an application pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.208 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, to construct, own, and operate the Corning Flow Reversal Project at Millennium's Corning compressor station in Steuben County, New York, under Millennium's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP98-155-000,[1] all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to the public for inspection.

Millennium proposes to modify facilities interconnecting Millennium's system with the system of Empire Pipeline, Inc. (Empire) by replacing two existing valves and adding six new valves and piping at Millennium's Corning compressor station in Steuben County. Millennium also proposes to increase the maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) of the Corning compressor station discharge piping from 1200 psig to 1350 psig. Millennium states that the increased MAOP is necessary to permit it to occasionally reverse the flow of natural gas on its system to transport natural gas from either its 30-inch diameter mainline system or its A5-West pipeline via the Corning compressor station onto the facilities of Empire, which operate at an MAOP of 1300 psig. Millennium further states that the activity associated with the Corning Flow Reversal Project will not increase Millennium's mainline capacity. Finally, Millennium estimates that the proposed modifications would cost $3,400,000 to construct.

Any questions concerning this application may be directed to Gary A. Kruse, Vice President-General Counsel and Secretary, Millennium Pipeline Company, L.L.C., One Blue Hill Plaza, Seventh Floor, P.O. Box 1565, Pearl River, New York 10965, telephone (845) 620-1300, facsimile (845) 620-1320, E-mail: or to Thomas E.
