Northern Natural Gas Company; Notice of Request Under Blanket 

May 15, 1998
    Take notice that on May 6, 1998, Northern Natural Gas Company, 
(Northern), 1111 South 103rd Street, Omaha, Nebraska 68124-1000, filed 
in Docket No. CP98-524-000 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 and remove three 
town border stations (TBSs), all as more fully set forth in the request 
that is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
    Northern proposes to abandon and remove one TBS in Saunders County, 
Nebraska, and two TBSs in Rice County, Minnesota. Northern constructed 
the subject facilities pursuant to 2.55 of the regulations and proposes 
to abandon them because the gas service downstream of the TBSs have 
been discontinued and that no other use exist for the facilities.
    Northern states that the abandonment will not result in any 
disruption or disadvantage any of Northern's customers.
    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 therefore, 
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and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a 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
