Take notice that on February 6, 2012, Williston Basin Interstate Pipeline Company (Williston Basin), 1250 West Century Avenue, Bismarck, North Dakota 58503, filed in Docket No. CP12-57-000, an application pursuant to section 157.21 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, to replace natural gas compression facilities at its Elk Basin compressor station in Park County, Wyoming, under Williston Basin's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-487-000 et al.,[1] all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to the public for inspection.

Williston Basin proposes to replace two natural gas-fired 225-horsepower (HP) compressor units installed in 1941, two natural gas-fired 330-HP compressor units installed in 1950, and one natural gas-fired 1,100-HP compressor unit installed in 1970 with one electric-driven 2,500-HP compressor unit.
