ITEM 5.  OTHER EVENTS.

        On December 9, 1996, the Registrant announced that the Board of
Directors of its general partner, Leviathan Gas Pipeline Company (the "General
Partner"), approved a distribution of one limited partner Preference Unit or
Common Unit, as the case may be, for each Preference Unit or Common Unit held.
The Board established December 31, 1996 as the record date for the distribution
and approximately January 15, 1997 as the date for mailing of certificates
representing the additional limited partner units. As a result of the
distribution, each holder of record on December 31, 1996 is entitled to receive
one additional Preference Unit or Common Unit, as the case may be, for each
Preference Unit or Common Unit held of  record by such holder.

        In connection with the distribution, the General Partner, on behalf of
itself and the limited partners, executed Amendment Number 1 (the "Amendment"),
to the Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership (the "Partnership
Agreement") of Leviathan Gas Pipeline Partners, L.P. The Amendment modifies two
provisions of the Partnership Agreement and was entered into in accordance with
the terms of the Partnership Agreement to preserve the relative rights and
obligations of the partners following the distribution. A copy of the Amendment
is attached as an exhibit to this report.
