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 14 copies of filings made in the proceeding with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party. 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. Protests and interventions 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. E:\FR\FM\14JYN1.SGM 14JYN1

    The Applicants state that upon implementation of the mergers, if

pipeline expansions within and outside the State of Missouri, and 
establish a single regulatory forum at the Commission to review any 
expansions and new services proposed in the future and to set a single

facilities and the integration of the Applicants' assets into a single 
interstate pipeline system will allow the Applicants to provide open 
access, non-discriminatory transportation consistent with the NGA and 
the Commission's regulations and policies. As an integrated interstate

better able to serve Missouri and Illinois customers and respond to 
interstate demand, particularly in Illinois. In addition, the 
Applicants say that consolidation of the companies will eliminate 
inefficiencies, enabling Missouri Gas to improve service to existing

abandon its facilities by transfer to Missouri Pipeline; (2) Missouri 
Pipeline to acquire and operate as part of its existing system, all of

certain routine construction and operation activities and abandonment;

as non-conforming service agreements.
    The Applicants state that as a result of these transactions, all of 
the facilities currently owned and operated individually by Missouri 
Interstate and Missouri Pipeline prior to the transactions will be 
owned and operated by Missouri Gas. They promise that no later than 18 
months after the integrated Missouri Gas commences operations pursuant
