Take notice that on March 13, 2002, Mississippi River Transmission Corporation (MRT) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1, the following revised tariff sheets to be effective April 12, 2002:
First Revised Sheet No. 37
First Revised Sheet No. 39
Second Revised Sheet No. 40
First Revised Sheet No. 43
First Revised Sheet No. 45
First Revised Sheet No. 50
1st Rev. First Revised Sheet No. 183
MRT states that the revised tariff sheets will modify the Tariff's General Terms and Conditions and the Tariff provisions applicable to No Notice Transportation Service (Rate Schedule NNT) and Firm Storage Service (Rate Schedule FSS), to grant greater flexibility to customers in securing through their service agreements the exact services that best suit their needs, in a manner consistent with Commission policy. Specifically, MRT states that it is proposing the ability to negotiate (1) a contractual right of first refusal (“ROFR”) in certain circumstances where a regulatory ROFR otherwise would not be available to the customer pursuant to Commission regulations, (2) a reduction of a customer's contract entitlements where there has been a bypass of that customer by a third party, and (3) a process for cooperative efforts between MRT and a customer to implement any regulatory or other governmental order whereby a customer is to unbundle the services that it provides to its own customers. MRT states that the revised tariff sheets also provide additional flexibility for a storage customer with regard to the requirements governing injections into and withdrawals from MRT's storage facilities.
MRT states that it has served copies of the filing upon all customers and relevant state regulatory 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.
