Northern Natural Gas Company; Notice of Request Under Blanket 

September 24, 1997.
    Take notice that on September 18, 1997, Northern Natural Gas 
Company (Northern), P.O. Box 3330, Omaha, Nebraska 68103-0330, filed in 
Docket No. CP97-759-000 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 17 small volume 
measuring stations, located in Iowa and Nebraska, under Northern's 
blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-401-000, 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 
    Northern proposes to abandon 17 small volume measuring stations due 
to requests from its end-users for the removal of the measuring station 
from their property. Northern states the facilities to be abandoned are 
located in Dickinson, Lyon, and O'Brien Counties, Iowa and Dakota, 
Gaye, and Lancaster Counties, Nebraska.
    Northern asserts the facilities to be abandoned are jurisdictional 
facilities under the Natural Gas Act and were constructed pursuant to 
superseded Section 2.55 regulations, budget, or blanket authority, 
depending on the year the facilities were originally placed in-service.
    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and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a 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
