    Take notice that on May 1, 1996, Equitrans, L.P. (Equitrans), 3500 
Park Lane, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15275, filed in Docket No. CP96-
397-000 an application pursuant to Section 7(b) of the Natural Gas Act 
for permission and approval to abandon an exchange service with 
Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation (Columbia), all as more fully set 
forth in the application on file with the Commission and open to public 
    Equitrans proposes to abandon an exchange service with Columbia 
under its Rate Schedule X-99 which provided for the exchange in Upshur 
and Wetzel Counties, West Virginia.
    Any person desiring to be heard or to make any protest with 
reference to said application should on or before May 28, 1996, file 
with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Washington, D.C. 20426, 
a motion to intervene or a protest in accordance with the requirements 
of the Commission's rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 
385.211) and the Regulations under the Natural Gas Act (18 CFR 157.10). 
All protests filed with the Commission will be considered by it in 
determining the appropriate action to be taken but will not serve to 
make the protestants parties to the proceeding. Any person wishing to 
become a party to a proceeding or to participate as a party in any 
hearing therein must file a motion to intervene in accordance with the 
Commission's Rules.
    Take further notice that, pursuant to the authority contained in 
and subject to the jurisdiction conferred upon the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission by Sections 7 and 15 of the Natural Gas Act and 
the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, a hearing will be 
held without further notice before the Commission or its designee on 
this application if no motion to intervene is filed within the time 
required herein, if the Commission on its own review of the matter 
finds that permission and approval for the proposed abandonment are 
required by the public convenience and necessity. If a motion for leave 
to intervene is timely filed, or if the Commission on its own motion 
believes that a formal hearing is required, further notice of such 
hearing will be duly given.
    Under the procedure herein provided for, unless otherwise advised, 
it will be unnecessary for Equitrans to appear or be represented at the 
Linwood A. Watson, Jr.,
Acting Secretary.
