1st Rev. Twenty-Seventh Revised Sheet No. 6
1st Rev. Twentieth Revised Sheet No. 6A

Application of section 26 of Viking's tariff results in the following new Fuel and Loss Retention Percentages for Rate Schedules FT-A, FT-B, FT-C, FT-D, IT and AOT respectively: 1.18 percent for Zone 1-1, 1.42 percent for Zone 1-2, and .33 percent for Zone 2-2. In addition, Viking is respectfully seeking waiver of section 26 of its FERC Gas Tariff in order to place the new FLRPs into effect on March 1, 2002 rather than on April 1, 2002 so as to provide the benefits of reduced FLRPs to Viking's shippers one month earlier.
