Start Preamble

Take notice that on June 4, 2015, Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, LLC (Transco), pursuant to its blanket certificate authorization granted in Docket No. CP82-426-000,[1] filed an application in accordance to sections 157.205 and 157.216 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, requesting authority to abandon certain pipeline facilities and removing related ancillary facilities, as necessary, located in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. The proposed abandonment are no longer required for gas service, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

Transco requests authorization to abandon an approximately 1.1-mile, 16-inch pipeline extending from Ship Shoal Block 28, Platform “C” to Ship Shoal Block 28, Platform “D1”; an approximately 10.5 mile, 16-inch pipeline extending from Ship Shoal Block 28, Platform “D1” to the Mosquito Bay Junction Platform “A”; and approximately 0.03-mile, 12-inch pipeline extending from Ship Shoal Block 28, Platform “D2” to a subsea tie-in with the 16-inch pipeline (Supply Laterals). The Supply Laterals will be abandoned in place. The tube turns and portions of the risers will be recovered and taken to shore. The Supply Laterals have not been used in the previous 12 months to provide service and are not expected to be used in the future. The proposed abandonment will have no impact on the daily design capacity and operating conditions of Transco's pipeline system. No customers have been served through the Supply Laterals during the previous 12 months.

Any questions concerning this application may be directed to Marg Camardello, P.O. Box 1396, Houston, Texas 77251, or by phone at (713) 215-3380.
