Koch states that the purpose of this filing is to comply with the Commission's Regulation of Short-Term Natural Gas Transportation Services and Regulation of Interstate Natural Gas Transportation Services in Docket Nos. RM98-10-000 and RM98-12-000 (Order No. 637). Among other things, the Commission in Order No. 637 waived the rate ceiling for short-term capacity release transactions and limited the availability of the right of first refusal to contracts at the maximum tariff rate having a term of twelve consecutive months or longer. On May 19, 2000, the Commission issued order 637-A which modified Order No. 637 to provide the right of first refusal will apply to multi-year seasonal contracts at the maximum rate for services not offered by the pipeline for twelve consecutive months. Accordingly, Koch has modified its tariff to comply with these requirements of Order Nos. 637 and 637A.
Koch states that copies of this filing have been served upon Koch's customers, state commissions and other interested parties.
