Take notice that on January 7, 2013, Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC (Columbia) 5151 San Felipe, Suite 2500, Houston, Texas 77056, filed in Docket No. CP13-35-000, an application pursuant to sections 157.205, 157.213(b), and 157.216(b) of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, to abandon one underperforming natural gas storage well and associated facilities in Guernsey County, Ohio, and convert and abandon certain natural gas storage facilities in Kanawha County, West Virginia, under Columbia's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP83-76-000,[1] all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to the public for inspection.

Columbia proposes to abandon the historically underperforming Guernsey Well 8161 together with the associated well pipeline (Line SOW-8161) and appurtenances located in the Guernsey Storage Field, in Guernsey County, Ohio. Columbia also proposes to convert the underperforming Lanham Storage Well No. 7137 from active injection/withdrawal status to observation status and abandon the associated X-2-W7137 pipeline and appurtenances located in the Lanham Storage Field in Kanawha County, West Virginia. Columbia does not propose to abandon any natural gas service; however, Columbia would terminate service to one free gas customer pursuant to the terms of the lease agreement between the customer and Columbia. Columbia estimates that it would cost $1,700,000 to replace the facilities that Columbia proposes to retire in this proceeding.
