Take notice that on October 28, 2002, Enbridge Pipelines (UTOS) L.L.C. (UTOS), pursuant to Rule 602 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385-602 (2002), filed an Offer of Settlement (Settlement) in the captioned proceedings.
UTOS states that the Settlement resolves UTOS's general Section 4(e) rate filing obligation presently set for January 2, 2003, pursuant to the Commission's October 8, 1998 Notice of Extension of Time in Docket Nos. RP94-161-000, et al. UTOS further states that shippers representing approximately 91% of its present system throughput either did not oppose or took no position relative to the Settlement.
According to UTOS, under the Settlement, it will not be required to make such general rate filing, thus permitting its currently effective rates to remain in effect until subsequently changed. As a result, UTOS says, the Settlement promotes administrative efficiencies by providing rate certainty for all concerned, while at the same time avoiding the time and expense that would otherwise be attendant to a general Section 4(e) rate filing.
Pursuant to Rule 602(f)(2) Initial Comments on the Settlement are due by November 18, 2002, and Reply Comments are due by November 27, 2002.
