Take notice that on December 21, 2000, Jack J. Grynberg (Grynberg) tendered for filing a Refund Report reflecting refunds due under the Commission's November 21, 2000 “Order Denying Rehearing and on Compliance Filing” (November 2000 Order) issued in the captioned proceedings. In addition, pursuant to Ordering Paragraph (C) of the November 2000 Order, Grynberg stated he transmitted a check for $597,107.97 to Questar Pipeline Company (Questar). Grynberg submitted his refund report and made payment to Questar without prejudice to his ability to seek judicial review of the November 2000 Order and the recovery of amounts paid, with interest, if the November 2000 Order is reversed and no refunds are required.
The refund report documents the ceiling price applicable under the Natural Gas Act and Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978 for each of the four wells for which refunds are due, and the formula used to calculate such refunds. Pursuant to the November 2000 Order, refunds were calculated only for sales prior to July 26, 1989. The amount paid Questar reflects total refunds due with interest through December 21, 2000, subject to a reduction for uncollectible royalties previously paid to the Colorado State Board of Line Commissioners (CSB) and to the U.S. Department of the Interior, Minerals Management Service (MMS). The royalties attributable to the CSB totaled $6,611 and to the MMS totaled $78,690.
