July 22, 1997.
    Take notice that on July 9, 1997, Texas Gas Transmission 
Corporation (Texas Gas), P.O. Box 20008, Owensboro, Kentucky 42304, 
filed an application pursuant to Section 7(b) of the Natural Gas Act 
and Part 157 of the Commission's Regulations for permission and 
approval to abandon two interruptible transportation services for CNG 
Transmission Corporation (CNG), all as more fully set forth in the 
application which is on file with the Commission and open to public 
    Texas Gas states that in Docket No. CP72-186, it was authorized to 
provide transportation service for CNG pursuant to an Interruptible 
Transportation Agreement dated December 27, 1971 (Rate Schedule X-42). 
Likewise, in Docket No. CP78-331, Texas Gas was authorized to provide 
interruptible transportation service for CNG pursuant to a 
Transportation Service Agreement dated March 20, 1978 (Rate Schedule X-
77). Texas Gas states that these transactions are no longer required or 
    Any person desiring to be heard or to make any protest with 
reference to said application should, on or before August 12, 1997, 
file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, 
N.E., Washington, D.C. 20426, a motion to intervene or 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 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 permission and approval of abandonment 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 
formal hearing is required, further notice of such hearing will be duly 
    Under the procedures herein provided for, unless otherwise advised, 
it will be unnecessary for Texas Gas to appear or be represented at the 
Linwood A. Watson, Jr.,
Acting Secretary.
