Take notice that on December 26, 2001, ANR Pipeline Company (ANR) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1, Sixteenth Revised Sheet No. 19, proposed to be effective January 1, 2002.
ANR states that the above-referenced tariff sheet is being filed to implement the Joint Offer of Settlement And Explanatory Statement and corresponding Stipulation and Agreement (Offer of Settlement) being filed simultaneously with this filing. As discussed in the Offer of Settlement, ANR has agreed to adjust the currently approved fuel matrix methodology for determining ANR's fuel use and lost-and-unaccounted-for retention percentages under its currently effective tariff mechanism. ANR has agreed to implement this revised methodology as to the current annual fuel matrix redetermination at issue in this proceeding, on an interim basis effective January 1, 2002, until ANR submits its next annual redetermination filing under its tariff to be effective April 1, 2002.
ANR states that, in general, the change in methodology results in fuel rate decreases only, but in any event, ANR is not proposing to put into effect any increases that result from the new methodology for the interim period January 1, 2002 through March 31, 2002.
