    Take notice that the following filings have been made with the 
Commission:

1. Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company

[Docket No. CP94-139-000]

    Take notice that on December 17, 1993, Tennessee Gas Pipeline 
Company (Tennessee), P.O. Box 2511, Houston, Texas 77252, filed in 
Docket No. CP94-139-000 a request pursuant to Secs. 157.205 and 157.212 
of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 
157.205 and 157.212) for authorization to construct and operate 
delivery tap facilities in Alcorn County, Mississippi to enable 
Tennessee to implement an interruptible transportation service for 
Eastex Hydrocarbons, Inc. (Eastex), under the blanket certificate 
issued in Docket No. CP82-413-000, pursuant to section 7(c) of the 
Natural Gas Act, all as more fully set forth in the request which is on 
file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
    Tennessee states that it entered into an interruptible 
transportation agreement with Eastex for service under Tennessee's Rate 
Schedule IT. Tennessee indicates that, in order to implement the 
delivery of gas to Eastex of up to 600 dt equivalent of natural gas per 
day, it proposes to install, own, operate and maintain a two-inch hot 
tap assembly, interconnect piping and measurement facilities in Alcorn 
County, Mississippi. It is indicated that the tie-in assembly would be 
constructed on Tennessee's existing right of way and that the 
measurement facility would be installed on a site adjacent to 
Tennessee's right of way. Tennessee states that the facilities would 
cost an estimated $19,142, which would be 100% reimbursable to 
Tennessee.
    Tennessee states that construction of the proposed delivery point 
is not prohibited by its existing tariff. Tennessee further states that 
the addition of the delivery facilities would have no impact on 
Tennessee's peak day and annual deliveries.
    Comment date: February 3, 1994, in accordance with Standard 
Paragraph G at the end of this notice.

2. Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line Company

[Docket No. CP94-133-000]

    Take notice that on December 15, 1993, Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line 
Company (Panhandle), P.O. Box 1642, Houston, Texas 77251-1642, filed in 
Docket No. CP94-133-000, a request pursuant to Secs. 157.205 of the 
Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.205) for 
authorization to construct, own and operate a new delivery tap and 
associated facilities for Illinois Power Company (Illinois Power), a 
local distribution company, located in Moultrie County, Illinois, under 
the authorization issued in Docket No. CP83-83-000 pursuant to section 
7 of the Natural Gas Act, all as more fully set forth in the request 
which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
    Panhandle proposes to install a hot tap, approximately 800 feet of 
10-inch pipeline and a M&R Station in order to deliver up to 75,000 Mcf 
per day of natural gas to Illinois Power. Panhandle estimates that the 
cost of the proposed facilities is approximately $832,000. Panhandle 
states that the volumes to be delivered through the proposed facilities 
are within the certificated entitlements of Illinois Power's current 
transportation agreements under Rate Schedules EIT and EFT. Panhandle 
submits that there will be no impact on Panhandle's peak day or annual 
deliveries to Illinois Power.
    Comment date: February 3, 1994, in accordance with Standard 
Paragraph G at the end of this notice.

3. Mississippi River Transmission Corporation

[Docket No. CP94-136-000]

    Take notice that on December 15, 1993, Mississippi River 
Transmission Corporation (MRT), 9900 Clayton Road, St. Louis, Missouri 
63124, filed in Docket No. CP94-136-000 a request pursuant to 
Secs. 157.205 and 157.212 of the Commission's Regulations under the 
Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.205, 157.212) for authorization to upgrade 
a delivery point used to serve Illinois Power Company (IP), an existing 
transportation customer, under MRT's blanket certificate issued in 
Docket No. CP82-489-000 pursuant to section 7 of the Natural Gas Act, 
all as more fully set forth in the request that is on file with the 
Commission and open to public inspection.
    MRT proposes to upgrade its existing delivery point serving IP's 
Wood River Power Plant in East Alton, Illinois, by replacing two 4-inch 
control valves with two 6-inch control valves. MRT explains that the 
proposed facilities would reduce the pressure drop associated with 
deliveries to the Wood River Power Plant and thereby enable MRT to 
serve increased peak hourly demands of that facility. MRT advises that 
the upgrade would not result in an increase in the maximum daily or 
annual volumes which MRT would transport for IP under current 
agreements and authority. MRT estimates that the cost of the facilities 
would be $9,200 which would be reimbursed.
    Comment date: February 3, 1994, in accordance with Standard 
Paragraph G at the end of this notice.
