Take notice that on May 1, 2002, PG&E Gas Transmission, Northwest Corporation (GTN) tendered for filing (to be part of its FERC Gas Tariff, First Revised Volume No. 1-A) Pro Forma Sheet No. 5 and Pro Forma Sheet No. 142, to comply with Commission orders issued August 6, 2001 and October 26, 2001 in Docket Nos. CP01-141-000 and -001, respectively. GTN indicates that these pro forma tariff sheets are intended to 1) establish an incremental fuel surcharge for shippers utilizing capacity currently being constructed as part of GTN's 2002 Pipeline Expansion Project (“02 Expansion”) and 2) establish a mechanism that will allow GTN to roll-down its proposed incremental fuel surcharge, consistent with the mechanisms described in the Commission's Statement of Policy on new pipeline construction. GTN indicates further that it is proposing to eliminate the applicability of its Competitive Equalization Surcharge to “02 Expansion Shippers.
