provided under Columbia's Interruptible Transportation Service Rate 
Schedule ITS.
    Columbia states that the quantities of natural gas to be provided 
through the existing point will be 1,000 Dth per day, and will be 
within Columbia's authorized level of service. Columbia also states 
that there will be no impact on Columbia's existing design day and 
annual obligation to its customers as a result of the NGA certification 
of the existing point of delivery for transportation service.
    Any person or the Commission's staff may, within 45 days after
