Take notice that on June 8, 2001, Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation (Columbia) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1, the following revised tariff sheets, bearing a proposed effective date of July 9, 2001:
Tenth Revised Sheet No. 262
First Revised Sheet No. 487
Original Sheet No. 488
Columbia 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 offsystem 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 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 offsystem 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 Columbia's tariff and to request such waiver.
Columbia 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 protest 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. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceedings. Any person wishing to become a party must file a motion to intervene. Copies of this filing are on file with the Commission and are available for public inspection in the Public Reference Room. This filing may be viewed on the web at http://www.ferc.fed.us/online/rims.htm (call 202-208-2222 for assistance).
