Third Revised Sheet No. 200A
Original Sheet No. 339A
Granite State states that the instant filing is being made to comply with the Order on Remand in Docket No. CP95-218-002 (Remand Order) issued by the Commission on December 14, 2000. The “Remand Order” revised the Commission's previous policy requiring pipelines to seek case-by-case approval before acquiring offsystem capacity and permitting new acquisitions of offsystem capacity by pipelines to be made without pre-approval. In its order denying clarification and rehearing issued April 12, 2001, in Docket No. CP95-218-004, the Commission clarified that pipelines intending to transport gas for others on acquired off system capacity must receive a waiver of the “shipper must have title” policy prior to commencing the service. The Commission stated that a pipeline need not seek such waiver on a case-by-case basis; rather it may make a single filing to amend its tariff to include a general statement that it will only transport for others using off system capacity pursuant to its existing tariff and rates and to request a generic waiver of the “shipper must have title” policy. The purpose of the instant filing is to include a general statement in Granite State's tariff and to request such waiver.
Granite State states that copies of its filing have been mailed to all firm customers, interruptible customers and affected state commissions.
Any person desiring to be heard or to protest said filing should file a motion to intervene or a protect with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, in accordance with sections 385.214 or 385.211 of the Commission's Rules and Regulations. All such motions or protests must be filed in accordance with section 154.210 of the Commission's Regulations.
