Specifically, Columbia requests authorization to increase the MAOP of its LineL-2102 from its current 210 psig to a new MAOP of 350 psig and to operate the pipeline at that higher pressure. Line L-2102 consists of approximately 4 miles of 10-inch pipeline beginning at the interconnection of Line-2102 and Line L-2100 and terminating at the interconnection with Line M-48 in Knox County, Ohio. The uprate is requested to allow Columbia Gas of Ohio, Inc. to meet pressure requirements to one of its customers at the Rolls Royce Plant in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. The proposed uprate creates a capacity increase of approximately 11 thousand dekatherms per day (MDth/d). The increase in MAOP will also improve the operating efficiency of the pipeline.
