Specifically, Tennessee proposes to replace existing Solar Turbine Taurus 70-10302S compressor unit at CS 321 with a Taurus 70-10802S compressor unit. The new turbine engine will have 9 ppm SoLoNOX controls, which will result in lower oxides of nitrogen (NOX) emissions from Unit C1. The planned replacement of the existing turbine engine will increase the horsepower of Unit C1 by 800 ISO horsepower, which will create an incremental year-round transportation capacity of approximately 10,000 Dth/d in Segments 320 and 321 of Tennessee's 300 Line. Tennessee states that this additional capacity will be made available pursuant to the terms and conditions of Tennessee's Gas Tariff. The estimated cost of the project is $2.4 million.

Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission's rules, 18 CFR 157.9, within 90 days of this Notice the Commission staff will either: Complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the Commission's public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding; or issue a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff's issuance of the EA for this proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission's public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's EA.

Any person may, within 60 days after the issuance of the instant notice by the Commission, file pursuant to Rule 214 of the Commission's Procedural Rules (18 CFR 385.214) a motion to intervene or notice of intervention. Any person filing to intervene or the Commission's staff may, pursuant to section 157.205 of the Commission's Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.205) file a protest to the request. If no protest is filed within the time allowed therefore, the proposed activity shall be deemed to be authorized effective the day after the time allowed for protest. If a protest is filed and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a protest, the instant request shall be treated as an application for authorization pursuant to section 7 of the NGA.

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 website ( under the “e-Filing” link.
