    Take notice that on October 2, 1998, Northwest Pipeline Corporation 
(Northwest), 295 Chipeta Way, Salt Lake City, Utah 84158, filed in 
Docket No. CP98-554-001 an amendment to its application filed May 15, 
1998, pursuant to Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act for authorization 
to revise the facility requirements and update the associated costs and 
rates for its proposed Columbia River Gorge Expansion Project, all as 
more fully set forth in the application on file with the Commission and 
open to public inspection.
    Specifically, Northwest proposes not install the new compressor

proposed, and to revise the original cost estimate from $17,029,000 to 
an approximate estimate of $18,567,000. All other segments of the 
original proposal would not change.
    Any person desiring to be heard or to make any protest with 
reference to said application should on or before October 30, 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 Northwest to appear or be represented at the 
Linwood A. Watson, Jr.,
Acting Secretary.
