on the Commission's website web at http://www.ferc.gov using the

    Any questions concerning this application may be directed to 
Francisco Tarin, Director, Regulatory Affairs, Colorado Interstate Gas 
Company, L.L.C., P.O. Box 1087, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80944, by 
telephone at (719) 667-7517, or by fax at (719) 520-4697; or Dave 
Dewey, Assistant General Counsel, Colorado Interstate Gas Company, 
L.L.C., P.O. Box 1087, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80944, by telephone 
at (719) 520-4227, or by fax at (719) 520-4898.
    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 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 EA.
    There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of 
this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by 
becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or 
before the comment date stated below file with the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20426, a 
motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and

[[Page 6554]]

Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA 
(18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the 
service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will 
receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other 
parties. A party must submit seven copies of filings made in the 
proceeding with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant 
and to every other party. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for 
court review of Commission orders in the proceeding.
    However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have 
comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with 
the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and 
two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. 
The Commission will consider these comments in determining the 
appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will 
not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's 
rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project 
provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly 
involved in the protest.
    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 commentors 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 commentors will not be required to serve copies of filed 
documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentors 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 in lieu of paper using the eFiling link at 
http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should 
submit an original and 7 copies of the protest or intervention to the 
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Washington, 
DC 20426.
    Comment Date: February 28, 2018.

    Dated: February 7, 2018.
Kimberly D. Bose,
Secretary.
