Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

[Docket No. CP16-7-000]

National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation; Notice of Request Under 
Blanket Authorization

    Take notice that on October 15, 2015, National Fuel Gas Supply 
Corporation (National Fuel), 6363 Main Street Williamsville, New York 
14221-5887, filed in Docket No. CP16-7-000 a prior notice request 
pursuant to sections 157.205 and 157.216 of the Commission's 
regulations under the Natural Gas Act (NGA) as amended, requesting 
authorization to abandon an injection/withdrawal well (Well 5596) at 
its Henderson Storage Field in Mercer County, Pennsylvania. National 
Fuel avers that Well 5596 is leaking from the production casing and 
cannot be economically repaired. National Fuel asserts that with the 
abandonment of the well, the associated well line will no longer be 
required and thus requests authorization to abandon in place the 
approximately 775 feet of 4-inch-diameter pipe. National Fuel states 
that it will replace an existing culvert crossing on an access road as 
part of the abandonment activities. National Fuel states that the 
proposed abandonment of Well 5596 and the associated well line will 
have no impact on National Fuel's existing customers or storage 
operations, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on 
file with the Commission and open to 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, please 
contact FERC Online Support at [email protected] or toll free

    Any questions concerning this application may be directed to 
Kenneth E. Webster, Attorney, National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation, 
6363 Main Street, Williamsville, New York, 14221-5887, by telephone at 
(716) 857-7067, by facsimile at (716) 857-7206, or by email at 
[email protected].
    Any person or the Commission's staff may, within 60 days after 
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 and pursuant to section 157.205 of 
the regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.205), 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 filing a protest. If a protest is filed and 
not withdrawn within 30 days after the allowed time for filing a 
protest, the instant request shall be treated as an application for 
authorization pursuant to section 7 of the NGA.
    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.
    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 commenters 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 commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed 
documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commenters, 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 seven copies of the protest or intervention to 
the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., 
Washington, DC 20426.
