[Docket No. CP16-18-000]

Magnum Gas Storage, LLC; Notice of Application for Amendment

    Take notice that on November 16, 2015, Magnum Gas Storage, LLC 
(Magnum), 3165 E. Millrock Dr., #330, Holladay, Utah 84121, filed an 
application pursuant to section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) and 
Parts 157 and 284 of the Commission's Regulations requesting that the 
Commission approve an amendment (Amendment) to the certificate of 
public convenience and necessity issued to the Magnum in Docket No. 
CP10-22-000 on March 17, 2011 (March 17 Order). The March 17 Order 
authorized Magnum to construct facilities in Millard, Juab, and Utah 
Counties, Utah consisting of four salt caverns, various related 
aboveground supporting facilities and a 61.6-mile long, 36-inch 
diameter, header pipeline extending from the storage site to points of 
interconnection with existing interstate gas transmission facilities 
owned by Kern River Gas Transmission Company and Questar Pipeline 
Company near Goshen, Utah.
    The Amendment requested by Magnum would authorize the relocation of 
Magnum's approved natural gas storage caverns and associated surface 
facilities within the previously analyzed Project area, grant authority 
to Magnum to provide a new firm wheeling transportation service under 
market-based rates, and extend the time by which the facilities must be 
constructed and placed in service. The filing may 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

    Any questions concerning this application should be directed to 
Tiffany A. James, Vice President, Project Development and Government 
Affairs, Magnum Gas Storage, LLC, 3165 E. Millrock Dr., #330, Holladay, 
Utah 84121, telephone: (801) 993-7001, email: 
[email protected], or J. Gordon Pennington, Attorney at Law,

20007, phone: (202) 625-4330, 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 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 5 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 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.
    Motions to intervene, protests and comments may be filed 
electronically via the Internet in lieu of paper; see, 18 CFR 
385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site 
under the ``e-Filing'' link. The Commission strongly encourages 
electronic filings.
    Comment Date: December 15, 2015

    Dated: November 24, 2015.
Nathaniel J. Davis, Sr.,
Deputy Secretary.
