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.
