Dated: December 22, 2016. Nathaniel J. Davis, Sr., Deputy Secretary. Project Description High Point would abandon by sale nine segments (totaling 61.3 miles) of 12- to 22-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline on its Venice to Toca Transmission Pipeline. To continue use of the remainder of High Point’s system and isolate it from the abandoned pipeline that Cayenne Pipeline, LLC plans to use for natural gas liquids, High Point would cut and cap the pipeline at nine locations and remove one meter. All of the abandonment activities, except for disconnecting cross-over and tie-in piping at the Venice, Toca, and Venice Gas Processing Plants and the use of three existing access roads, would occur within High Point’s existing permanent right-of-way. Most of the work would take place on existing platforms. The abandonment would also include modifications of 15 associated aboveground valves to isolate the line to be abandoned from the rest of High Point’s pipeline system. [FRL–9957–50–ORD] Additional Information In order to receive notification of the issuance of the EA and to keep track of all formal issuances and submittals in specific dockets, the Commission offers a free service called eSubscription.
