Take notice that on June 19, 2002, Florida Gas Transmission Company (FGT) tendered for filing to become part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1, the following tariff sheets, to become effective July 1, 2002:
Fifty-Third Revised Sheet No. 8A
Forty-Fifth Revised Sheet No. 8A.01
Forty-Fifth Revised Sheet No. 8A.02
Third Revised Sheet No. 8A.04
Forty-Eighth Revised Sheet No. 8B
Forty-First Revised Sheet No. 8B.01
FGT states that in Docket No. RP02-163-000 filed on February 25, 2002, it filed to establish a Base Fuel Reimbursement Charge Percentage (Base FRCP) of 3.06 % to become effective for the six-month Summer Period beginning April 1, 2002. FGT states in the instant filing, it is filing a flex adjustment of 0.25% to be effective July 1, 2002, which, when combined with the Base FRCP of 3.06% results in an Effective Fuel Reimbursement Charge Percentage of 3.31%. This filing is necessary because FGT is currently experiencing higher fuel usage than is being recovered in the currently effective FRCP of 3.06%. Increasing the Effective FRCP will reduce FGT's underrecovery of fuel and reduce the Unit Fuel Surcharge in the next Summer Period.
FGT states that the tariff sheets listed above are being filed pursuant to Section 27.A.2.b of the General Terms and Conditions of FGT's Tariff, which provides for flex adjustments to the Base FRCP. Pursuant to the terms of Section 27.A.2.b, a flex adjustment shall become effective without prior FERC approval provided that such flex adjustment does not exceed 0.50%, is effective at the beginning of a month, is posted on FGT's EBB at least five working days prior to the nomination deadline, and is filed no more than sixty and at least seven days before the proposed effective date. The instant filing comports with these provisions and FGT has posted notice of the flex adjustment prior to the instant filing.
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. All such motions or protests must be filed in accordance with Section 154.210 of the Commission's Regulations. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceedings. Any person wishing to become a party must file a motion to intervene. Copies of this filing are on file with the Commission and are available for public inspection.
