two new horizontal storage wells, designated Well 12601 and Well 12602, 
and related pipelines and appurtenances at Columbia's Pavonia Storage 
Field, located in Ashland and Richland Counties, Ohio. Columbia states 
that the new wells are focused on improving the field's late season 
deliverability. There will be no change in the certificated physical 
parameters of the field, including existing boundary, total inventory, 
reservoir pressure, reservoir and buffer boundaries, or the 
certificated storage capacity, as a result of the proposed project. The 
total cost is approximately $6,000,000.

    Any person or the Commission's Staff may, within 60 days after the 
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 Commission's Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.205) a protest 
to the request. If no protest is filed within the time allowed 
therefore, the proposed activity shall be deemed to be authorized 
effective the day after the time allowed for 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filed and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for 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 NGA.
    Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission's rules, 18 CFR 157.9, 
within 90 days of this Notice the Commission staff will either: 
Complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the 
Commission's public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding, or issue a 
Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. If a Notice of Schedule 
for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other 
milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff's issuance of 
the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this 
proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission's public record for 
this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for 
Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of 
the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the 
subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days 
of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's FEIS or EA.
    Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of 
this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments 
to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commenters will be 
placed on the Commission's environmental mailing list, will receive 
copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings 
associated with the Commission's environmental review process. 
Environmental commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed 
documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commenters will 
not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by 
the Commission (except for the mailing of environmental documents 
issued by the Commission) and will not have the right to seek court 
review of the Commission's final order.
    The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, 
protests, and interventions via the internet in lieu of paper. See 18 
CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's 
website (www.ferc.gov) under the e-Filing link. Persons unable to file 
electronically should submit an original and 5 copies of the protest or 
intervention to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First 
Street NE, Washington, DC 20426.

    Dated: February 7, 2018.
