Take notice that on April 30, 2002, Williams Gas Pipelines Central, Inc. (Williams) tendered for filing a report of the amount of penalty revenue collected by Williams pursuant to the provisions of Article 9.6 of the General Terms and Conditions of its FERC Gas Tariff during Periods of Daily Balancing (PODB) occurring in the 1995-96 and 1996-97 winter heating seasons, and the proposed distribution of such penalty revenues.
Williams states that as a result of severe weather conditions and resulting high demand for gas in its major market areas, Williams imposed two PODBs pursuant to Article 9.4 of its tariff during the 1995-96 winter heating season and three PODBs during the 1996-97 winter heating season as further described in its report. Penalties were imposed for overruns of MDTQ and MDWQ, depletion of gas in storage, under receipts at receipt points and over deliveries at delivery points as provided in Article 9.6 of Williams' tariff. As a result, Williams has collected $869,052 in penalty revenues. Williams proposes to refund these penalty revenues plus accrued interest ($396,119 through April 30, 2002) to non-offending parties as shown herein.
Williams states that a copy of its filing was served on all jurisdictional customers and interested state commissions.
