Take notice that on March 1, 2002 Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation (Transco) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1, certain revised tariff sheets which sheets are enumerated in Appendix A to the filing, with an effective date of April 1, 2002.
Transco states that the instant filing is submitted pursuant to Section 38 of the General Terms and Conditions of Transco's FERC Gas Tariff which provides that Transco will file, to be effective each April 1, a redetermination of its fuel retention percentages applicable to transportation and storage rate schedules. The derivations of the revised fuel retention percentages included therein are based on Transco's estimate of gas required for operations (GRO) for the forthcoming annual period April 2002 through March 2003 plus the balance accumulated in the Deferred GRO Account at January 31, 2002. Appendix B attached to the filing contains workpapers supporting the derivation of the revised fuel retention percentages.
An alternate tariff sheet has also been tendered for filing which reflects a change in the method used to derive the fuel retention factor applicable to Rate Schedules ISS, WSS, WSS-Open Access and WSS-Open Access-R. This approach reduces the fuel retention percentage applicable to Rate Schedules WSS, WSS-Open Access and WSS-Open Access-R by .72% and results in a fuel retention percentage of .64% for the forthcoming annual period under Rate Schedules ISS, WSS, WSS-Open Access and WSS-Open Access-R. Appendix B-1 attached to the filing contains workpapers supporting the derivation of the revised fuel retention factor contained therein.
Transco states that copies of the filing are being mailed to its affected customers and interested State Commissions.
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.
