Take notice that on May 7, 2002 Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline, L.L.C. (Maritimes) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, First Revised Volume No. 1, Third Revised Sheet No. 11 to become effective on June 1, 2002.
Maritimes states that it is making this Interim Fuel Retainage Quantity (FRQ) filing, pursuant to section 20 of the General Terms and Conditions of its FERC Gas Tariff. Maritimes is proposing to reduce its Fuel Retainage Percentages for the Summer Period (June 1, 2002—August 31, 2002) and the Fall Shoulder Period (September 1, 2002—October 31, 2002) to 0.90%. Maritimes states that this reduction is necessary to reflect lower compressor fuel gas usage that is occurring on the Maritimes system as a result of lower throughput for the current gas year than that originally projected in Maritimes October 1, 2001 Annual Fuel Retainage Quantity filing in Docket No. RP02-4.
Maritimes also states that pursuant to section 20.5 of the General Terms and Conditions (GT&C), Maritimes is permitted to make interim filings to adjust the fuel retention percentages as appropriate.
