[Docket No. CP00-372-000]


TCP Gathering Company; Notice of Application

June 7, 2000.
    Take notice that on May 31, 2000, TCP Gathering Company (TCP 
Gathering), 555 Seventeenth Street, Denver, Colorado 80202-3918, filed 
in Docket No. CP00-372-000, an application pursuant to Section 7(b) of 
the Natural Gas Act (NGA), and Section 157.18 of the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission's (Commission) Regulations for permission and 
approval to abandon interstate transportation service, and certain 
natural gas facilities located in San Juan County, Utah and San Miguel 
County, Colorado, all as more fully set forth in the application which 
is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection. This 
filing may be viewed on the web at http://www.ferc.fed.us/online/
rims.htm. Call (202)208-2222 for assistance.
    TCP Gathering explains that, upon receipt of abandonment 
authorization, it would reconfigure its facilities, consisting of 
approximately 28 miles of 8-inch and 4-inch pipeline, to connect them 
to an existing gathering system owned and operated by TCP Gathering's 
new owner Tom Brown, Inc. (Tom Brown) and would operate the facilities 
as gathering facilities exempt from the Commission's regulation 
pursuant to Section 1(b) of the NGA.
    Currently, TCP Gathering has only one shipper, with whom it has an 
interruptible transportation contract. The shipper's gas transported 
from the shipper's well in the Little Valley field in San Juan County, 
Utah for delivery to Rocky Mountain Natural Gas company, TCP 
Gathering's previous owner, in San Miguel County, Colorado. TCP 
Gathering states that, upon obtaining the requested abandonment 
authority, it will construct an interconnection with Tom Brown's Lisbon 
Field gathering system in San Juan County, Utah, and plans to gather 
gas from wells along the length of TCP Gathering's system in Utah and 
Colorado for delivery to the Lisbon Field where the gas will be 
processed in the Lisbon Plant.
    If there are any further questions regarding this proposal, the 
following individual may be contacted: Bruce R. DeBoer, TCP Gathering 
company, 555 Seventeenth Street, Suite 1850, Denver, Colorado 80202-
3918, at (303) 260-5000.
    Any person desiring to be heard or to make any protest with 
reference to said application should, on or before June 28, 2000, file 
with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE, 
Washington, DC, 20426, a protest or motion to intervene in accordance 
with the requirements of the Commission's Rules of Practice and 
Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 or 385.214) and the Regulations Under the 
Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.10). All protests filed with the Commission 
will be considered by it in determining the appropriate action to be 
taken but will not serve to make the protestants parties to the 
proceeding. Any person wishing to become a party to a proceeding or to 
participate as a party in any hearing therein must file a petition to 
intervene in accordance with the Commission's Rules.
    Take further notice that, pursuant to the authority contained in 
and subject to the jurisdiction conferred upon the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission by Sections 7 and 15 of the Natural Gas Act and 
the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, a hearing will be 
held without further notice before the Commission or its designee on 
this document if no motion to intervene is filed within the time 
required herein, if the Commission on its own review of the matter 
finds that permission and approval of the proposed abandonment is 
required by the public convenience and necessity. If a motion for leave 
to intervene is timely filed, or if the Commission on its own motion 
believes that a formal hearing is required, further notice of such 
hearing will be duly given.
    Under the procedure herein provided for, unless otherwise advised, 
it will be

unnecessary for TCP Gathering to appear or be represented at the 
hearing.

Secretary.
