Tennessee Gas Pipeline has asked FERC to declare five laterals
in Texas as non-jurisdictional gathering and allow it to abandon
and sell them to affiliate El Paso Field Services. The West
Magnolia, Chesterville, Bay City, Hungerford, and Village Mills
Lateral Systems fit the description of gathering, Tennessee said,
adding that they currently are little used. The pipeline said it is
no longer necessary for it to own the gathering lines since it no
longer sells bundled gas services. Detaching them from the
Tennessee system will "improve Tennessee's ability to streamline
its mainline transmission operations." Also the systems would be
better able to compete with other unregulated gathering services if
they are not tied to a jurisdictional pipeline.
