Take notice that on November 30, 2001, National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation (National) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Fourth Revised Volume No. 1, Forty Fifth Revised Sheet No. 9 and Fifth Revised Sheet No. 43, with a proposed effective date of January 1, 2002.
National states that pursuant to Article III, Section 1, of the approved settlement at Docket Nos. RP94-367-000, et al., National is required to recalculate the maximum Firm Gathering (FG) rate annually to reflect: (a) The changes in the FG reservation determinants based on the FG throughput for the prior 12 months ended October 31; (b) an annual reduction of 2.5 percent in direct Operation and Maintenance Costs; (c) the costs resulting from operation of Sections 2 and 3 of Article III of the settlement; and (d) changes in the IG revenues to be subtracted from the Gathering Cost-of-Service based on the maximum IG rate in effect each month during the prior 12 months ended October 31 times the IG throughput for the same period. The recalculation produced a negative FG rate. Since the minimum FG reservation rate stated in National's tariff is $0.0000, the maximum FG reservation rate will reflect a rate of $0.0000.
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.
