Questar Pipeline Company (Questar Pipeline) filed an application for
a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on September 18, 2012, in Docket
No. CP12-524-000. The application proposes to modify existing natural
gas facilities that are located on Questar Pipeline's southern
pipeline transmission system (ML 41 Project). The ML 41 Project will
increase the pressure on ML 41 for an expansion of a downstream power
plant, known as the Lake Side 2 power plant (Lake Side 2), while
maintaining service to existing local distribution company customers.
The ML 41 Project will be located in Utah and Carbon Counties, Utah.
Questar Pipeline proposes to modify existing natural gas facilities
on its southern pipeline transmission system. In particular, Questar
Pipeline will: (1) add a second compressor package at its existing
Thistle Creek Compressor Station , (2) replace approximately 0.9 miles
of existing 18-inch diameter ML 41 pipeline to establish a maximum
allowed operating pressure through a Department of Transportation
Class 3 location and high consequence area, (3) upgrade metering and
ancillary facilities at Questar Pipeline's existing Payson Gate meter
station (Payson) and (4) make piping and meter modifications at
Questar Pipeline's existing Oak Spring Compressor Station . The
proposed ML 41 Project will increase pressure on ML 41 to allow
additional high-pressure deliveries at Payson for the downstream Lake
Side 2 power plant. A map is attached showing the general location of
the ML 41 Project. Construction is proposed to begin as early as April
1, 2013 and be completed by November 1, 2013.
A landowner information pamphlet entitled "An Interstate Natural
Gas Facility On My Land? What Do I Need to Know?" is available on the
FERC's web site at www.ferc.gov. A separate notice will be mailed to
affected landowners and governmental entities.
