Company (East Tennessee), P.O. Box 2511, Houston, Texas 77252, filed in 
Docket No. CP96-637-000, a request pursuant to Section 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 install a new delivery 
point to provide for continued natural gas service to the Unicoi County 
Gas Utility District (Unicoi). East Tennessee makes such request, under 
its blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-412-000 pursuant to 
Section 7 of the Natural Gas Act, all as more fully set forth in the 
request on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
    Specifically, East Tennessee is proposing to install a 3-inch hot 
tap, and electronic gas measurement equipment, on it's system in Unicoi 
County, Tennessee, to provide continued firm natural gas transportation 
service to Unicoi, a local distribution company. East Tennessee 
indicates that it intends to provide said service to Unicoi under its 
FT-GS Rate Schedule. It is further stated that East Tennessee proposes 
to inspect Unicoi's installation of approximately 25 feet of 3-inch 
interconnecting piping and a 4-inch turbine meter.
    It is averred that Unicoi will provide a meter site adjacent to and 
along East Tennessee's existing right-of-way, and that Unicoi will 
install, own, operate and maintain the interconnecting piping, and will 
install, own and maintain the measurement facilities. East Tennessee 
states that it will install, own, operate and maintain the hot tap and 
the electronic gas measurement equipment. East Tennessee further states 
that Unicoi will reimburse it for the approximate $60,004 project cost.
    East Tennessee states that it has sufficient capacity to accomplish 
deliveries at the proposed new delivery point without detriment or 
disadvantage to East Tennessee's other customers.
    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 Section 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and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a 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.
