Fifth Revised Sheet No. 144
Columbia Gulf states that the purpose of this filing is to modify Section 4.1(c)(1) of the General Terms and Conditions (“GTC”) of its tariff to reflect a revision to the Commission's right-of-first-refusal (“ROFR”) policy set forth in Order No. 637-B, issued July 26, 2000, 92 FERC 61,062 (2000). In Order No. 637-B, the Commission clarified that long-term service agreements with negotiated rates entered into prior to the issuance of Order No. 637 are grandfathered and that the ROFR will apply at the expiration of such service agreements. Columbia Gulf has modified GTC Section 4.1(c)(1) to incorporate this clarification in its tariff.
