Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
[Docket No. RP97-159-009]

Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation; Notice of Request for 
Extension of Waiver

January 15, 1998.
    Take notice that on November 26, 1997, Transcontinental Gas Pipe 
Line Corporation (Transco) filed in Docket No. RP97-159-009 a request 
pursuant to 18 CFR Sec. 385.2008 for extension of waiver to permit 
Transco to continue to use non-standard GISB data elements and datasets 
for an additional six months until June 1, 1998.
    Transco states that a May 15, 1997, Commission Order on Compliance 
Filing and rehearing (79 FERC para.  61,172 (1997), granted a waiver to 
permit Transco to use non-standard data elements and datasets until 
December 1, 1997, so that implementation of the Internet electronic 
communication standards can proceed while GISB is considering requests 
for modification of the datasets.
    Transco states that its requests for modification are still pending 
before GISB, and that under the circumstances, good cause exists for 
the Commission to grant Transco an extension of the waiver granted in 
the May 15 order to allow GISB additional time for consideration of 
Transco's requests.
    Any person desiring to protest said filing should file a protest 
with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, N.E., 
Washington, D.C. 20426 in accordance with Section 385.211 of the 
commission's Rules and Regulations. All such protests must be filed on 
or before January 23, 1998. Protests will be considered by the 
Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will 
not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Copies of this 
application are on file with the Commission and are available for 
public inspection in the Public Reference Room.
Linwood A. Watson, Jr.,
Acting Secretary.
