Take notice that on August 23, 2002, Northern Natural Gas Company (Northern) tendered for filing to become part of Northern's FERC Gas Tariff, Fifth Revised Volume No. 1, Second Revised Sheet No. 284, Third Revised Sheet No. 285, Original Sheet No. 285A, and Fifth Revised Sheet No. 289 to be effective on September 23, 2002.
Northern is hereby updating and clarifying Section 46 (Creditworthiness) and Section 47 (Capacity Release) of its tariff due to increased rating agency downgrades to many energy companies over the past twelve months.

Northern further states that copies of the filing have been mailed to each of its customers and interested State Commissions.
