    Any questions concerning this application may be directed to Paul 
W. Diehl, Senior Counsel, Midstream EQT Corporation, 625 Liberty 
Avenue, Suite 1700, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, at (412) 395-5540.
    Specifically, Equitrans proposes to increase the maximum allowable 
operating pressure (MAOP) of several of its pipeline segments, from 605 
psig to 655 psig and add 9,470 horsepower of compression at its 
Blacksville Compressor Station in Monongalia County, West Virginia. The 
estimated cost of the project is $26,579,260.
    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.
    Any person may, within 60 days after the 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. Any person filing to intervene or the Commission's staff 
may, pursuant to section 157.205 of the Commission's Regulations under 
the Natural Gas Act (NGA) (18 CFR 157.205) file 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 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withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a protest, 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 NGA.
    The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, 
protests, and interventions via the internet in lieu of paper. See 18 
CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web 
site (www.ferc.gov) under the ``e-Filing'' link.
