Take notice that on March 23, 2012, pursuant to Rule 207(a)(2) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.207(a)(2)(2011), Explorer Pipeline Company (Explorer) petitioned the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a declaratory order approving (1) priority capacity and (2) the overall rate structure for Explorer's proposed diluent pipeline extension project (Diluent Extension Project). The Diluent Extension Project involves the construction of a new pipeline segment from Peotone, Illinois to Manhattan, Illinois, where Explorer's pipeline system will interconnect with Enbridge's Southern Lights pipeline. This extension project will offer a new option for shippers transporting diluent from Explorer's origins to Enbridge's Southern Lights, and ultimately to Western Canada, where diluent demand is increasing.
Any person desiring to intervene or to protest in this proceeding must file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214) on or before 5 p.m. Eastern time on the specified comment date. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Anyone filing a motion to intervene or protest must serve a copy of that document on the Petitioner.
