Take notice that on May 31, 2001 Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company (Eastern Shore) tendered for filing its annual Fuel Retention Adjustment filing pursunat to Section No. 1.
Eastern Shore states that Section 31, “Fuel Retention Adjustment”, specifies that with no less than thirty (30) days prior notice, Eastern Shore shall file with the Commission revised tariff sheets containing a re-determined Fuel Retention Percentage (“FRP”) for affected transportation rate schedules to be effective July 1 of each year. Such FRP is designed to reimburse Eastern Shore for the cost of its Gas Required for Operations (“GRO”) which consists of (a) gas used for compressor fuel and (b) gas otherwise used, lost or unaccounted for, in its operations. Eastern Shore's FRP is calculated by determining the GRO quantities attributable to system-wide operations for the affected transportation rate schedules using the last twelve (12) month period for which actual data is available and then dividing such quantity by the transportation quantities received by Eastern Shore for the corresponding twelve (12) month period.
Eastern Shore states that as shown in its filing, Eastern Shore's calculated FRP is .38%, an increase of .28% from the current FRP in effect.
Eastern Shore states that copies of its filing has been mailed to its customers and interested state commissions.
