Questar Pipeline Company; Notice of Request Under Blanket Authorization

November 19, 1998.

Take notice that on November 12, 1998, Questar Pipeline Company (Questar), 180 East 100 South, P.O. Box 45360, Salt Lake City, Utah 84145-0360, filedin Docket No. CP99-73-000 a request pursuant to Sections 157.205 and 157.216 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.205, 157.216) for authorization to abandon its Jurisdictional Lateral (J.L.) No. 61, located in Summit County, Utah, by sale to JN Exploration and Production Company (JN), an independent producer, under Questar's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-491-000, pursuant to Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act, all as more fully set forth in the request that is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.

Questar proposes to abandon J.L. No. 61 by sale to JN, which is located in Sections 25 and 26, Township 3 North, Range 7 East, Summit County, Utah. Questar states that J.L. No. 61 comprises 630 feet of 3.5-inch O.D. lateral and 4,976 feet of 4.5-inch O.D. lateral (a total of 1.06 miles of 3.5-inch and 4.5-inch diameter lateral) and includes a 10-inch drip assembly and a 400 bbl. liquid tank located near the main- line junction. Questar also proposes to abandon to JN the private land- owner rights of way and easement grants associated with J.L. No. 61.

Questar declares that JN intends to utilize J.L. No. 61 as a gathering lateral to accommodate new development in the area and enhance JN's ability to more effectively serve the needs of its customers in the North Pineview Field. Questar states that the abandonment of J.L. No. 61 to JN will also improve Questar's operating efficiencies in the area by eliminating the need for them to maintain this facility, which is not conveniently located for Questar's operating personnel. Questar asserts that the proposal will not result in a reduction or abandonment of transportation service on Questar's transmission system.

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 filedwithin 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. Linwood A. Watson, Jr., Acting Secretary.
