Take notice that on July 24, 2012 Columbia Gas Transmission, L.L.C. (Columbia), P.O. Box 1273, Charleston, West Virginia 25325, filed in Docket No. CP12-487-000, a Prior Notice request pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.216 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act for authorization to abandon four underperforming natural gas storage wells in Ashland, Hocking, and Lorain Counties, Ohio. Specifically, Columbia proposes to permanently plug and abandon Benton Storage Well No. 8620, Laurel Storage Well No. 9019, Lucas Storage Well No. 582, and Wellington Storage Well No. 8702 together with the associated well pipeline and appurtenances. The proposed wells to be abandoned have historically performed poorly in relation to other wells and Columbia has determined that plugging and abandoning the wells is the best course of action, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
