Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
[Docket No. RP00-155-000]

Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation; Notice of Compliance 

January 5, 2000.
    Take notice that on December 30, 1999, Columbia Gas Transmission 
Corporation (Columbia) tendered a filing with the Commission in 
compliance with Stipulation II, Article III, Section B(3), of the 
settlement filed in Docket No. RP95-408 et al, approved on April 17, 
1997 (79 FERC para. 61,044 (1997))(Settlement). The Settlement provides 
that in the event that Columbia is still providing gathering service on 
February 1, 2000, Columbia shall file no later than December 31, 1999 
to be effective February 1, 2000, to reflect in the gathering rates the 
actual costs of providing gathering service at the time of the filing.
    Columbia states that gathering costs have already been fully 
unbundled from transportation service rates since January 31, 1999, and 
this filing does not affect transportation service rates. Since 
Columbia is continuing to sell, refunctionalize, or otherwise dispose 
of all facilities functionally classified as gathering, Columbia has 
determined that it is willing to continue to charge the lower currently 
effective rate for gathering service.
    Columbia states further that copies of this filing have been mailed 
to all of its customers and affected state regulatory commissions.
    Any person desiring to be heard or to protest said filing should 
file a motion to intervene or a protest with the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20426, in 
accordance with Sections 385.214 or 385.211 of the Commission's Rules 
and Regulations. All such motions or protests must be filed on or 
before January 12, 2000. 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 proceedings. Any person wishing to 
become a party must file a motion to intervene. Copies of this filing 
are on file with the Commission and are available for public inspection 
in the Public Reference Room. This filing may be viewed on the web at
