[Docket No. CP16-459-000]


Texas Gas Transmission, LLC; Notice of Request Under Blanket 
Authorization

    Take notice that on May 12, 2016, Texas Gas Transmission, LLC 
(Texas Gas), 9 Greenway Plaza, Suite 2800, Houston, Texas 77046, filed 
in Docket No. CP16-459-000, a prior notice request pursuant to sections 
157.205 and 157.216 of the Commission's regulations under the Natural 
Gas Act (NGA). Texas Gas seeks authorization to abandon one injection/
withdrawal well and related facilities in its Graham Lake natural gas 
storage facility (Graham Lake), located in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. 
Texas Gas states that plugging and abandoning the well will have no 
effect on the certificated physical parameters of Graham Lake, 
including total inventory, reservoir pressure, reservoir and buffer 
boundaries, and certificated capacity. Texas Gas proposes to perform 
these activities under its blanket certificate issued in Docket No. 
CP82-407-000, all as more fully set forth in the application which is 
on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
    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 [email protected] or call toll-
free, (886) 208-3676 or TYY, (202) 502-8659.
    Any questions regarding this application should be directed to J. 
Kyle Stephens, Vice President, Regulatory Affairs, Texas Gas 
Transmission, LLC, 9 Greenway Plaza, Suite 2800, Houston, Texas, 77046, 
or by calling (713) 479-8033 (telephone) or (713) 479-1818 (fax) 
[email protected].
    Any person or the Commission's Staff 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 and, pursuant to section 157.205 of 
the Commission's 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 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filed and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for 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.
    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 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. Persons unable to file 
electronically should submit an original and 5 copies of the protest or 
intervention to the Federal
