[[Page 41140]]

Docket No. CP96-659-000 a request pursuant to Sections 157.205 and 
157.212 of the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 
CFR 157.205, 157.212) for authorization to upgrade an existing delivery 
point, located in Cass County, Nebraska, to accommodate increased 
natural gas deliveries to UtiliCorp United, Inc. (UCU), under 
Northern's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-401-000 
pursuant to Section 7 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.
    Northern intends to upgrade the Weeping Water #1 TBS located in 
Cass County, Nebraska. Northern states that UCU has requested increased 
service at the Weeping Water #1 TBS to accommodate growth in the area. 
Northern also states that the proposed increase in volumes to be 
delivered to UCU at the Weeping Water #1 TBS are 1,391 MMBtu on a peak 
day and 152, 314 MMBtu on an annual basis. Northern estimates a $40,000 
cost for upgrading the existing delivery point.
    Northern advises that the total volumes to be delivered to the 
customer after the request do not exceed the total volumes authorized 
prior to the request. Northern states that the proposed activity is not 
prohibited by its existing tariff and that it has sufficient capacity 
to accommodate the changes without detriment or disadvantage to its 
other customers.
    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 filed within 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and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a 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.
