Take notice that on March 30, 2001, Colorado Interstate Gas Company (CIG) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, First Revised Volume No. 1, the tariff sheets listed in Appendix A to the notice attached to the filing, to become effective May 1, 2001.
The proposed rate changes would increase revenues from jurisdictional service by approximately $9.4 million based on the 12-month period ending December 31, 2000, as adjusted. CIG states that $9.4 million rate increase would be necessary to: (1) Compensate CIG for the inflation in operating costs that has occurred since its last general rate case in 1996, including the expansion filings in Docket No. CP00-452-000 (Raton Basin Expansion), Docket No. CP01-1-000 (Valley Line I Start Printed Page 18615Expansion), safest-related system integrity, as well as substantial electronic and computer enhancements; (2) modify rates to reflect CIG's current business and discounting profile and; (3) would allow CIG to earn a rate of return on CIG's assets, at a level that will be competitive in capital markets.
CIG states that the tariff sheets listed in Appendix A include two new transportation services, and change significantly the nature and the cost of its two no-notice delivery services, as well as multiple conforming tariff modifications.
CIG states that a full copy or abbreviated copy of its filing are being serviced on all jurisdictional customers, applicable state commissions, and interested parties that have requested service.
