On October 10, 2013, Texas Eastern filed an application for a certificate of public convenience and necessity (Docket No. CP14–4–000), and had received an Order Issuing Certificate and Approving Abandonment on January 29, 2014. The January 29 Order authorized the excavation, elevation, replacement and abandonment of certain pipeline and appurtenant facilities due to the anticipated longwall mining activities of Panel D1 of Emerald Coal Resources, LP’s (Emerald) coal mine in Greene County, Pennsylvania. Emerald has since informed Texas Eastern that, in addition to Panel D1, mining activities are now anticipated at Emerald’s Panel D2 and are expected to impact Texas Eastern beginning the first quarter of 2015. The Texas Eastern facilities to be impacted by potential ground subsidence resulting from longwall mining activities at Panel D2 are sections of the same pipelines, immediately east of Lines 1, 2, 10, 15 and 25, that were described in the January 29 Order related to Panel D1. Texas Eastern proposes to excavate, elevate, replace, and/or abandon by removal certain sections of five different pipelines and appurtenant facilities located in Greene County, Pennsylvania, all as more fully set forth in the application, which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
