Texas Eastern states that the revised tariff sheets and the reconciliation report submitted are being filed (i) pursuant to section 15.6, Applicable Shrinkage Adjustment (ASA), and section 15.8, Periodic Reports, contained in the General Terms and Conditions of Texas Eastern's FERC Gas Tariff, Seventh Revised Volume No. 1, (ii) in compliance with the Stipulation and Agreement (Global Settlement) approved by the Commission in its order issued May 2, 1994 [67 FERC ¶ 61,170, reh'g denied, 68 FERC ¶ 61,062 (1994)], and (iii) in compliance with the Joint Stipulation and Agreement Amending Global Settlement (Amended Global Settlement) approved by the Commission in its order issued August 28, 1998 [84 FERC ¶ 61,200 (1998)].

Texas Eastern states that the combined impact on Texas Eastern's rates at December 1, 2001 of this filing with the Annual PCB-Related Costs filing being filed concurrently herewith to be effective December 1, 2001 equates to an overall decrease of 0.68 cents for typical long-haul service under Rate Schedule FT-1 from Access Area Zone East Louisiana to Market Zone 3 (ELA-M3) as follows:

Rate Equivalent at P.I.R. A. projected price of $3.22/dth$0.003

Texas Eastern states that by this filing it is (1) providing its final report on recovery of Order No. 636 transition costs and returning to its customers the excess collection of Non-Spot Costs, by crediting the ASA Deferred Account for $496,271; (2) providing its Annual Interruptible Revenue Reconciliation Report under the Amended Global Settlement which reflects a credit to the ASA Deferred Account of $207,462, which is 90% of the amount of interruptible revenue in excess of the revenue threshold contemplated by the Amended Global Settlement; (3) reducing by approximately 30% the level of its ASA Surcharges included in rates pursuant to an Interim ASA filing accepted by Commission orders issued May 25, 2001 [95 FERC ¶ 61,267 (2001)] and October 15, 2001[97 FERC ¶ 61,059 (2001)] and (4) reflecting minor changes in its ASA percentages, which are designed to retain in-kind the projected quantities of gas required for the operation of Texas Eastern's system in providing service to its customers for the twelve month period beginning December 1, 2001.
