Take notice that on March 14, 2000 William Energy Marketing & Trading Company (Williams) tendered for filing a petition for a declaratory order to remove uncertainty regarding the applicability of the Commission's “buy/sell” policy to offshore production area transactions. Specifically, Williams requests a declaratory order confirming that the buy/sell policy does not apply to Outer Continental Shelf production-area arrangements like those contemplated by Royalty-In-Kind pilot projects recently initiated by the U.S. Department of Interior's Minerals Management Service.
