[Docket No. CP94-154-000]


Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company Southern Natural Gas Co.; 

December 27, 1993.
    Take notice that on December 22, 1993, Tennessee Gas Pipeline 
Company (Tennessee), P.O. Box 2511, Houston, Texas 77252-2511 and 
Southern Natural Gas Company (Southern), P.O. Box 2563, Birmingham, 
Alabama 35202-2563, jointly referred to as Applicants, filed in Docket 
No. CP94-154-000 an application pursuant to section 7(b) of the Natural 
Gas Act, for permission and approval to abandon an emergency gas 
exchange service, effective September 1, 1993, all as more fully set 
forth in the application on file with the Commission and open to public 
    The Applicants were authorized in Docket No. CP63-146, to construct 
and operate two emergency interconnections between the pipeline 
facilities of the two companies, and to use those facilities to provide 
an emergency exchange of natural gas between Tennessee and Southern. 
The facilities were constructed at a point where Southern's 24 inch 
Second North Main Line crossed Tennessee's 30 inch Delta Portland Line 
in Lowndes County, Mississippi, and at a point where Southern's 18 inch 
line crossed Tennessee's 30 inch line in Clarke County, Mississippi. 
The facilities were only to be used two accommodate a gas-for-gas 
emergency exchange. It is stated that the Applicants performed the 
emergency exchange service under agreements, denoted as Tennessee's 
Rate Schedule X-13 and Southern's Rate Schedule X-15, which were both 
dated November 1, 1962, as amended. It is further stated that the 
emergency gas-for-gas exchange was designed to be used when either 
Southern or Tennessee was confronted with an emergency on its system, 
which could be alleviated by deliveries of natural gas from the system 
of the other.
    The Applicants state that they are proposing to abandon the 
emergency service because, the restructure of services under Order No. 
636 has rendered the above-referenced agreement unnecessary and 
    No facilities are proposed to be abandoned herein.
    Any person desiring to be heard or to make any protest with 
reference to said application should on or before January 18, 1994, 
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 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 Applicants to appear or be represented at 
the hearing.
