Take notice that on June 6, 2002, North Baja Pipeline LLC (NBP) tendered for filing its actual FERC Gas Tariff, Original Volume No. 1, in compliance with ordering paragraph D of the Commission's May 18, 2001, Preliminary Determination on Non-Environmental Issues (Preliminary Determination) 95 FERC ¶ 61,259. These actual tariff sheets reflects modifications to NBP's originally filed Pro Forma FERC Gas Tariff to bring it into compliance with current NAESB standards, all the requirements in Order Nos. 637, 637-A, and 637-B and subsequent orders, and any other tariff regulations currently in effect. Additional tariff modifications have been made as indicated in NBP's filing. In addition, NBP has requested waiver of the Preliminary Determination requirement that NBP revise its initial rates in order to reflect any change in its cost of long-term debt. NBP requested that the Commission allow it to delay restating its maximum recourse rates until it has secured long-term debt financing, which is expected to occur by the end of February 2003.
NBP anticipates that its 79.8-mile natural gas pipeline will be placed into partial service as early as mid-August 2002 and requests an effective date of August 12, 2002, for these actual tariff sheets.
