    Take notice that on February 18, 2014 Equitrans, L.P. (Equitrans), 
at 625 Liberty Avenue, Suite 1700, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222, 
filed an application in Docket No. CP14-85-000 pursuant to section 7(b) 
of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) and Part 157 of the Commission's 
regulations to abandon certain gathering facilities located in West 
Virginia. Specifically, Equitrans proposes to abandon approximately 4.5 
miles of the certificated M-90 gathering line and any appurtenant 
facilities located in Tyler and Doddridge Counties, West Virginia. 
Equitrans states will not affect its ability to render jurisdictional 
services, all as more fully set forth in the application, which is on 
file with the Commission and open to public inspection. This filing is 
accessible on-line at http://www.ferc.gov, using the ``eLibrary'' link 
and is available for review in the Commission's Public Reference Room 
in Washington, DC. There is an ``eSubscription'' link on the Web site 
that enables subscribers to receive email notification when a document 
is added to a subscribed docket(s). For assistance with any FERC Online 
service, please email [email protected], or call (866) 208-
3676 (toll free). For TTY, call (202) 502-8659.
    Any questions regarding this application should be directed to Paul 
W. Diehl, Senior Counsel--Midstream, EQT Corporation, 625 Liberty Ave., 
Suite 1700, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, or by calling (412) 395-5540 
(telephone), or fax (412) 553-7781, or email [email protected].
    Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission's rules, 18 CFR 157.9, 
within 90 days of this Notice the Commission staff will either: 
Complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the 
Commission's public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding; or issue a 
Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. If a Notice of Schedule 
for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other 
milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff's issuance of 
the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this 
proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission's public record for 
this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for 
Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of 
the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the 
subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days 
of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's FEIS or EA.
    There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of 
this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by 
becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or 
before the comment date stated below file with the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a 
motion to intervene 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 NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person 
obtaining party 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 all other parties. A party must 
submit 7 copies of filings made in the proceeding with the Commission 
and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party. Only 
parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders 
in the proceeding.
    However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have 
comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with 
the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and 
two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. 
The Commission will consider these comments in determining the 
appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will 
not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's 
rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project 
provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly 
involved in the protest.
    Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of 
this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments 
to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commentors will be 
placed on the Commission's

environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental 
documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the 
Commission's environmental review process. Environmental commentors 
will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other 
parties. However, the non-party commentors will not receive copies of 
all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission 
(except for the mailing of environmental documents issued by the 
Commission) and will not have the right to seek court review of the 
Commission's final order.
    The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, 
protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the ``eFiling'' link 
at http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should 
submit an original and 5 copies of the protest or intervention to the 
Federal Energy regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, 
DC 20426.
    Comment Date: 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on March 26, 2014.

    Dated: March 5, 2014.
