Southern states that the purpose of the filing is to comply with the Commission's order dated July 2, 2001 in the above-referenced docket. Such order required Southern to make a compliance filing (i) to eliminate Southern's ability to award requests as they come in and to require Southern to award available firm capacity under an open season process; (ii) to specify the number of days that Southern will take to evaluate bids made in an open season; and (iii) to clarify that any pending Primary Receipt Point amendments will be awarded first on a first-come, first-served basis before any awards of Receipt Point capacity may be awarded for the applicable Receipt Point in an open season. Southern has stated that it will award the winning bidder within 14 business days of the close of the open season.
Southern has also clarified that it must have an open season if it receives in writing any requests for available firm capacity, unless the request is for capacity that has already been offered in an open season and the request is lower than the reserve price established in the open season. In addition, Southern has stated that it will post available firm capacity under Section 284.13(d) as it becomes available.
Southern has requested that these sheets be made effective as of October 1, 2000 consistent with the Commission's July 2nd Order.
Southern states that copies of the filing will be served upon its shippers and interested state commissions.
