Take notice that on May 31, 2000, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (Tennessee), tendered for filing certain revised tariff sheets for inclusion in Tennessee's FERC Gas Tariff, Fifth Revised Volume No. 1. Tennessee requests that the attached sheets be made effective July 1, 2000.
Tennessee states that pursuant to the May 15, 1995 comprehensive settlement agreement in the referenced proceeding, which resolved outstanding issues relating to Tennessee's recovery through rates of the costs of remediating polychlorinated biphenyl (“PCB”) and other hazardous substance list (“HSL”) contamination on its system (“Settlement”), Tennessee is seeking to extend the initial PCB adjustment period and to decrease the PCB adjustment surcharge amount to $0.00, all as provided for under the Settlement. Tennessee also states that although there are uncertainties attached to the PCH/HSL remediation project (“Project”), based on its best reasonable expectations to date, Tennessee may be able to complete the Project by the end of 2004.
Tennessee further states that the extended adjustment period is required under the Settlement to reflect additional eligible costs that Tennessee expects to expend to complete the Project. Tennessee also notes that its request to reduce the surcharge to $0.00 is meant to temporarily relieve its customers of the surcharge obligation while at the same time leaving the recovery mechanism intact if unforeseen circumstances arise.
