CP99-584-000 under section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act, for authority 
to construct and operate 3.9 miles of 24-inch loop pipeline in Mobile 
County, Alabama, all as more fully set forth in the application which 
is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection. This 
filing may be viewed on the web at http://www.ferc.us/online/rims.htm. 
Call 202-208-2222 for assistance. The name, address, and telephone

    Koch states that the cost of the proposed facilities is $6,095,000. 
Koch is proposing this construction so that it can transport 15,000 Dth 
per day (Dth/d) for Southern Services, Inc., (SCS) acting as agent for 
Alabama Power Company (APC). This gas will be used by APC to fuel gas 
fired electric generation facilities being constructed at Plant Barry. 
Gas will be provided to Koch for APC's account at primary receipts 
points by APC's upstream suppliers, these volumes will then be shipped 
by Koch to an interconnection with Bay Gas on Koch's Index 301-8-10 
line. Bay Gas will then transport the volumes on its intrastate line to 
APC's Plant Barry. Koch states that the proposed looping will allow it 
to inject the additional 15,000 Dth/d into the system of Bay Gas for 
delivery to Plant Barry. Service on Koch's system for APC will be 
provided under its Rate Schedule FTS.
    Any person desiring to participate in the hearing process or to 
make any protest with reference to said application should on or before 
August 16, 1999, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 
888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene or a 
protest in accordance with the requirements of the Commission's rules 
of practice and procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the 
regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.10). All protests 
filed with the Commission will be considered by it in determining the 
appropriate action to be taken but will not serve to make the 
protestants parties to the proceeding. The Commission's rules require 
that protestors provide copies of their protest to the party or parties 
directly involved. Any person wishing to become a party to a proceeding 
or to participate as a party in any hearing therein must file a motion 
to intervene in accordance with the Commission's rules.
    Any person obtaining intervener status will be placed on the 
service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will 
receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by every one 
of the interveners. An intervener can file for rehearing of any 
Commission order and can petition for court review of any such order. 
However, an intervener must submit copies of comments or any other 
filing it makes with the Commission to every other intervener in the 
proceeding, as well as 14 copies with the Commission.
    A person does not have to intervene, however in order to have 
comments considered. A person, instead, may submit two copies of 
comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Commenters will be placed 
on the Commission's environmental mailing list, will receive copies of 
environmental documents and will be able to participate in meeting 
associated with the Commission's environmental review process. 
Commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on 
all other parties. However, commenters will not receive copies of all 
documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission and will 
not have the right to seek rehearing or appeal the Commission's final 
order to a federal court.
    The Commission will consider all comments and concerns equally, 
whether filed by commenters or those requesting intervener status.
    Take further notice that, pursuant to the authority contained in an 
subject to the jurisdiction conferred upon the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission by sections 7 and 15 of the Natural Gas Act and 
the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, a hearing will be 
held without further notice before the Commission or its designee on 
this application if no motion to intervene is filed within the time 
required therein, if the Commission on its own review of the matter 
finds that grant of the certificate is required by the public 
convenience and necessity. If a motion for leave to intervene is timely 
filed, or if the Commission on its own motion believes that a formal 
hearing is required, further notice of such hearing will be duly given.
    Under the procedure herein provided for, unless otherwise advised, 
it will be unnecessary for Koch to appear or to be represented at the 
David P. Boergers,
