Take notice that on July 18, 2001, Transok, L.L.C. (Transok) filed an abbreviated application pursuant to Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) for issuance to Transok of a limited-jurisdiction certificate of public convenience and necessity authorizing Transok to lease capacity on its intrastate pipeline system for use by Ozark Gas Transmission, L.L.C. to provide interstate storage and no-notice transportation services.
Transok is an intrastate pipeline that provides natural gas transportation and storage service under Section 311 of the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978. Ozark is an interstate pipeline providing service in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri.
Transok seeks issuance of a limited jurisdiction certificate of public convenience and necessity under NGA Section 7(c) to the extent required to enable Transok to lease pipeline capacity to Ozark which Ozark will use in the transportation of gas in interstate commerce. Transok submits that the lease of pipeline capacity is necessary to enable Ozark to offer its proposed new No-Notice, Firm Storage and Interruptible Storage Services. Transok states that it will not be in a position to enter into and perform the proposed pipeline capacity lease unless it is granted a limited jurisdiction certificate that will permit the leased capacity to be used in the transportation of natural gas in interstate commerce without generally subjecting Transok to NGA jurisdiction.
Questions concerning this filing may be directed to counsel for Ozark, James F. Bowe, Jr., Dewey Ballantine LLP, at (202) 429-1444, fax (202) 429-1579, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
