3. CNG Producing Company

[Docket No. CP94-146-000]

    Take notice that on December 17, 1993, CNG Producing Company (CNG 
Producing), 1450 Poydras Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70112-6000, 
filed in Docket No. CP94-146-000 a petition pursuant to section 16 of 
the Natural Gas Act (NGA) and rule 207(a)(2) of the Commission's Rules 
of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.207(a)(2)), for a declaratory 
order disclaiming Commission jurisdiction over certain facilities and 
the services provided through them, all as more fully set forth in the 
petition which is on file with the Commission and open to public 
inspection.
    CNG Producing seeks a declaratory order from the Commission finding 
that certain facilities would be gathering facilities, exempt from the 
Commission's jurisdiction under section 1(b) of the NGA, at such time 
as the facilities are acquired from CNG Transmission Corporation 
(CNGT). CNG Producing states that CNGT has agreed to sell to CNG 
Producing at net book value its interest in nine offshore compressors 
(a total of 11,125 horsepower with the largest compressor being rated 
at 3,500 horsepower) at six locations, seven offshore pipelines 
(ranging from 378 feet to 7.3 miles in length and 12 to 20 inches in 
diameter), and associated measurement and regulation facilities.1
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\CNGT filed in Docket No. CP93-340-000 to abandon the 
facilities by sale to CNG Producing. See notice of filing issued by 
the Commission on May 17, 1993 (58 FR 29573, May 21, 1993).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CNG Producing explains that the facilities are part of CNGT's 
miscellaneous facilities located in the Gulf of Mexico that were 
constructed between 1974 and 1981 to move purchased gas from the 
wellhead to third-party pipeline facilities for transportation to 
onshore transmission facilities in Louisiana. CNG Producing advises 
that the facilities are currently used to move gas into offshore 
pipelines for redelivery onshore. CNG Producing states that, upon 
acquisition, the facilities would be used by CNG Producing to gather 
and market natural gas, including its own production. CNG Producing 
further states that the facilities are not owned in their entirety by 
CNGT, but each facility is jointly owned by at least one other party.
    Comment date: January 13, 1994, in accordance with the first 
paragraph of Standard Paragraph F at the end of this notice.

Standard Paragraphs

    F. Any person desiring to be heard or to make any protest with 
reference to said application should on or before the comment date, 
file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 
20426, a motion to intervene or a protest in accordance with the 
requirements of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 
CFR 385.214 or 385.211) 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 motion 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 application if no motion to intervene is filed within the time 
required herein, if the Commission on its own review of the matter 
finds that a grant of the certificate and/or permission and approval 
for the proposed abandonment are 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 applicant to appear or be represented at the 
hearing.
    G. Any person or the Commission's staff may, within 45 days after 
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 and pursuant to Sec. 157.205 of the 
Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.205) a protest to the 
request. If no protest is filed within the time allowed therefor, the 
proposed activity shall be deemed to be authorized effective the day 
after the time allowed for filing a 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 Natural Gas Act.

Secretary.
