Take notice that on October 24, 2000, Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation (Columbia) tendered for filing to come part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1, the following revised tariff sheets, with a proposed effective date of November 1, 2000:
Forty-first Revised No. 28
Ninth Revised Sheet No. 262
Eighth Revised Sheet No. 395
Third Revised Sheet No. 466
Third Revised Sheet No. 475
On April 17, 1995, Columbia filed an Offer of Settlement (Settlement) with the Federal Energy Regulatory Start Printed Page 66530Commission (Commission) in Docket No. GP94-02, et al. The Commission in an order dated June 15, 1995 (71 FERC ¶ 61,337) approved the Settlement. Pursuant to Article X of the Settlement, Columbia was permitted to collect $10 million as full and complete satisfaction of any right it may have to recover Gas Supply Realignment Costs, Order No. 500/528 Costs, overriding royalties, and all Producer Contract Rejection Costs (collectively referred to as GSR Costs).
Columbia states that the instant filing address Columbia's collection of $1 million in GSR Costs, plus FERC interest, from its Rate Schedule ITS customers. Specifically, commencing February 1, 1996, Columbia began collecting the GSR Coasts from Rate Schedule ITS Customers via a $0.01/Dth surcharge (Article X Surcharge). The Article X Surcharge was to remain in effect until Columbia had collected the $1 million in GSR Costs, plus FERC interest from ITS Rate Schedule customers.
As of October 31, 2000, Columbia will have over-recovered its allowed recover of $1 million by approximately $20,000. Accordingly, Columbia proposes to remove the Article X Surcharge effective November 1, 2000. The tariff sheets filed herewith will accomplish that.
Columbia states that copies of its filing have been mailed to all firm customers, interruptible customers and affected state commissions.
