    Take notice that on October 4, 1995, Shell Gas Pipeline Company 
(Shell) filed a petition for declaratory order with the Commission in

    Shell proposes to construct and operate its Mississippi Canyon 
Gathering System (MCGS) in three segments: (1) 68 miles of 12-inch 
diameter pipe from the sub-sea wellheads located on its Mensa Prospect 
in Mississippi Canyon Block 731 to a platform in West Delta Block 143,

pipe from the Mars Prospect in Mississippi Canyon Block 807, offshore

pipe from the WD 143 Platform to the existing processing and interstate 
pipeline infrastructure at the Venice Processing Plant in Venice, 
Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.

reference to said petition should on or before November 2, 1995, file

the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or
