Southeastern states that it has no current interstate customers, but would like to retain authorization to offer such services in the future at approved rates.
Southeastern included a copy of its October 6, 2000 filing with the Ohio Public Utilities Commission, in which the requested maximum rate for firm and interruptible intrastate transportation is $0.40 per Ccf.Start Printed Page 1973
