Take notice that on October 12, 2001, Great Lakes Gas Transmission Limited Partnership (Great Lakes) filed for disclosure, a transportation service agreement pursuant to Great Lakes' Rate Schedule FT entered into by Great Lakes and Engage Energy America LLC (Engage) (FT Service Agreement). The FT Service Agreement being filed reflects a negotiated rate arrangement between Great Lakes and Engage commencing December 1, 2001. Engage obtained the capacity as the successful bidder in an open season held for the capacity. The FT Agreement also constitutes a non-conforming service agreement as contemplated in § 154.1(d) of the Commission's regulations.
Great Lakes states that the FT Service Agreement is being filed to implement a negotiated rate contract as required by both Great Lakes' negotiated rate tariff provisions and the Commission's Statement of Policy on Alternatives to Traditional Cost-of-Service Ratemaking for Natural Gas Pipelines and Regulation of Negotiated Transportation Services of Natural Gas Pipelines, issued January 31, 1996, at Docket Nos. RM95-6-000 and RM96-7-000. Start Printed Page 53595
Great Lakes also states that the FT Service Agreement is a non-conforming service agreement in that it deviates in a material aspect from the form of service agreement in Great Lakes' tariff. Accordingly, Great Lakes has also filed Tenth Revised Sheet No. 1 and Original Sheet No. 90 for inclusion in Great Lakes' FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1, identifying the FT Service Agreement as a non-conforming service agreement as required by § 154.112(b) of the Commission's regulations, effective December 1, 2001.
