    Take notice that on January 25, 2008, Northwest Pipeline GP 
(Northwest), P.O. Box 58900, Salt Lake City, Utah 84158-0900, filed in 
Docket No. CP08-64-000, an application pursuant to Sections 157.205 and 
157.210 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) 
as amended, to expand the secondary function of two existing portable 
compressor units at its Kemmerer compressor station in Lincoln County,

    Northwest proposes to use the two portable Solar Centaur turbine-
driven centrifugal compressor units (each rated ISO-rated at 4,700 
horsepower) on a temporary, as needed basis, to temporarily provide 
increased throughput, provided the compressor units are not needed for 
their primary purpose of replacing unavailable permanent compression 
elsewhere on Northwest's transmission system. Northwest would use any 
increased throughput to reduce capacity constraints that may be 
experienced by its existing customers. Northwest states that the design 
throughput capabilities at the Kemmerer compressor station would not 
change. Northwest further states that no additional capital cost 
expenditures would be needed in this proposal, because Northwest 
already owns the portable compressor units and the auxiliary 
infrastructure necessary to accommodate the two compressor units 
already exists at the Kemmerer compressor station. Northwest states 
that it anticipates any subsequent costs for disconnecting, moving, and 
reconnecting the portable compressor units, as necessary, would be 
relatively minimal and expensed.
    Any questions concerning this application may be directed to Lynn 
Dahlberg, Manager, Certificates and Tariffs, P.O. Box 58900, Salt Lake 
City, Utah 84158-0900, or telephone (801) 584-6851, facsimile (801)
