Transmission Co.

[[Page 46781]]

(K N), P.O. Box 281304, Lakewood, Colorado 80228, filed in Docket No. 
CP98-736-000 an application pursuant to Section 7(b) of the Natural Gas 
Act for authorization to abandon certain pipeline facilities in Texas, 
all as more fully set forth in the application on file with the 
Commission and open to public inspection.
    K N proposes to abandon by sale to Westar Transmission Company, an 
intrastate affiliate, facilities comprising the western portion of the 
Buffalo Wallow Pipeline System, located in Hemphill County, Texas. K N 
states that Westar will operate the facilities as part of its 
intrastate system and agrees to assume all service obligations and 
operational and economic responsibilities for the facilities. It is 
explained that the facilities to be sold to Westar will be conveyed at 
$4,768,809, to be adjusted to the actual net book value on the date of 
transfer. K N asserts that the facilities sold to Westar will be 
nonjurisdictional following the transfer and requests a finding that 
they will be exempt from Commission regulation. K N states that the 
proposed abandonment will not result in any interruption, reduction, or 
termination of service to existing customers.
    Any person desiring to be heard or to make any protest with 
reference to said application should on or before September 17, 1998, 
file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, 
NE., 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 is 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 K N to appear or be represented at the 
Linwood A. Watson, Jr.,
Acting Secretary.
