Start Preamble October 22, 2002.

Take notice that on October 16, 2002, Cotton Valley Compression, L.L.C. (Cotton Valley), filed in Docket Nos. CP99-541-003 and RP03-28-000 a report (1) describing the first change of leased compressor units, (2) recomputing the stated rates to reflect the cost and capacity impacts of that compressor change, (3) replacing specific tariff sheets to reflect those revised rates, and (4) satisfying environmental conditions attached to its original certificate of public convenience and necessity issued in 2000. 90 FERC ¶ 61,206.

In that certificate besides authorizing Cotton Valley's 1,200 horsepower of installed leased compression with a capacity of 13,100 Dth/d, the Commission authorized it to operate leased compressors up to 3,000 horsepower with a capacity of up to 31,000 Dth/d, without further certification or abandonment for changes up or down within this upper level, subject to certain conditions.

In pertinent part Cotton Valley reports that: (1) it replaced the 600 horsepower Waukesha Dresser unit with a single 1,350 horsepower CAT 3516, with 1,950 horsepower of combined compression and a maximum firm capacity of 17,800 Dth/day; (2) it certifies that, with the new leased compressor configuration described above, the previously determined acceptable air emission level of less than 100 TPY combined has not been exceeded; (3) it shows that the 1999 compressor noise reading of Ldn of 46 dBA at the nearby noise sensitive areas (NSA) for the original 1,200 hp three-unit configuration has been reduced to an Ldn of 40.5 dBA at the NSA; (4) it both computes new rates and revises tariff sheets to reflect revised FT base reservation rate which drops from $0.86 to $0.6406 per Dth per month, and the revised FT deferred compressor surcharge which increases from $0.9258 to $1.354 per Dth per month, with comparable IT rate revisions.

The following revised tariff sheets are being filed:

First Revised Sheet No. 2 superceding Original Sheet No. 2

First Revised Sheet No. 4 superceding Original Sheet No. 2

Cotton Valley requests that these sheets be made effective on November 15, 2002.
