Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
[Docket No. CP98-138-000]

NorAm Gas Transmission Company; Notice of Request Under Blanket 

December 24, 1997.
    Take notice that on December 17, 1997, NorAm Gas Transmission 
Company (NGT), 1600 Smith Street, Houston, Texas 77002, filed in Docket 
No. CP98-138-000 a request pursuant to Sections 157.205 and 157.216 of 
the Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.205 
and 157.216) for authorization to abandon certain facilities in 
Arkansas under NGT's blanket certificate issued in Docket No. CP82-384-
000 and CP82-384-001 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.
    NGT specifically proposes to abandon and remove a 1-inch inactive 
tap on Line Am-46, at station 194+57 in Hempsted County, Arkansas. NGT 
constructed this tap in 1941 to deliver natural gas to a rural domestic 
customer of Arkla, a distribution division of NorAm Energy Corp. 
(Arkla). Arkla has removed its distribution meter and the landowner has 
requested that NGT remove the tap to allow construction on the 
property. The abandonment cost of the facilities is $258, and the 
landowner has agreed to reimburse NGT for these costs.
    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and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a 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.
