Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
[Docket No. CP98-778-000]

El Paso Natural Gas Company; Notice of Request Under Blanket 

September 21, 1998.
    Take notice that on September 14, 1998, El Paso Natural Gas Company 
(El Paso), P.O. Box 1492, El Paso, Texas 79978, filed in Docket No. 
CP98-778-000 a request pursuant to Sections 157,205 and 157.212 of the 
Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.205, 
157.212) for authorization to certificate and to continue the operation 
of an existing delivery point, installed under Section 311(a) of the 
Natural Gas Policy Act, under El Paso's blanket certificate issued in 
Docket No. CP82-435-000 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.
    El Paso states that the facility was installed under Section 311(a) 
and has exclusively used this delivery point for the transportation and 
delivery of natural gas under Part 284, Subpart B. El Paso states that 
the regulatory restriction placed on the operation of a facility 
installed under Section 311 (a) of the NGPA prohibits El Paso shippers 
from utilizing this delivery point under any transportation arrangement 
other than a Subpart B transportation arrangement. In view of this 
limited service flexibility, El Paso believes that certification of the 
Pinnacle Delivery Point, located in Hutchinson County, Texas, pursuant 
to Section 157.212 of the Commission's Regulations, is necessary and in 
the public interest. El Paso states that continued operation of the 
facility is not prohibited by El Paso's existing Volume No. 1-A FERC 
Gas Tariff. El Paso states that it has sufficient capacity to 
accomplish the deliveries without detriment or disadvantage to El 
Paso's other 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 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and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a 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.
