National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation; Notice of Application

    Take notice that on June 13, 2014, National Fuel Gas Supply 
Corporation (National Fuel), 6363 Main Street, Williamsville, New York 
14221 filed an application in Docket No. CP14-501-000 pursuant to 
section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), and Part 157 of the 
Commission's regulations, for a certificate of public convenience and/
or necessity requesting authorization to revise the reservoir and 
buffer boundaries of its adjacent Beech Hill, East Independence and 
West Independence Storage Fields in Alleghany and Steuben Counties, New 
York and that would extend the Beech Hill field into Potter County,

reservoir by 8,299.02 acres and the buffer area by 4,654.67 acres. 
Additionally, National Fuel requests authorization to convert Well 7451 
from observation to withdrawal only status. National Fuel does not seek 
to change the certificated capacity or deliverability of the three 
fields, nor are there any new facilities proposed, all as more fully 
set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and 
open for public inspection. The filing may also be viewed on the Web at 
http://www.ferc.gov using the ``eLibrary'' link. Enter the docket 
number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to 
access the document. For assistance, contact FERC at 
[email protected] or call toll-free, (866) 208-3676 or TTY, 
(202) 502-8659.
    Any questions regarding this application may be directed to David 
W. Reitz, Deputy General Counsel, National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation, 
6363 Main Street, Williamsville, New York 14221, or by calling 716-857-
7949.
    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 with the Commission and must mail a 
copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. 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 commenter's 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 he Commission's environmental review process. 
Environmental commenter's will not be required to serve copies of filed 
documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentary, 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 ill 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. See, 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the 
Commission's Web site under the ``e-Filing'' link.
    Comment Date: July 15, 2014.
