CEGT proposes to abandon the Tate Island compressor station, which is located on CEGT's Line B in Johnson County. CEGT would remove two rented 400 horsepower (HP) Caterpillar G3412 reciprocating compressor units and associated auxiliary facilities. CEGT states that natural gas currently flows through Line B and is compressed at the Tate Island compressor station before flowing via Line B for further compression at CEGT's Piney compressor station in Pope County, Arkansas, for delivery into CEGT's Line J. CEGT also states that it has determined that it would be more cost effective to abandon the Tate Island compressor station and use the Piney compressor station for the necessary compression. CEGT further states that this rearrangement of compression facilities would create savings on monthly rental costs and not degrade service on CEGT's system. CEGT estimates that it would cost $401,810 to abandon the Tate Island facilities.

Any questions regarding this application should be directed to Michele Willis, Manager, Regulatory & Compliance, CenterPoint Energy Gas Transmission Company, LLC, P.O. Box 21734, Shreveport, Louisiana 71151, or via telephone at (318) 429-3708.

There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit 14 copies of filings made with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding.

However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest.

Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commenters will be placed on the Commission's environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission's environmental review process. Environmental commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commenters will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission (except for the mailing of environmental documents issued by the Commission) and will not have the right to seek court review of the Commission's final order.

The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, protests and interventions via the Internet in lieu of paper. See, 18 CFR 385.2001(a) (1) (iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site ( under the “e-Filing” link.

Comment Date: 5 p.m. Eastern Time on May 4, 2012.
