Take notice on November 14, 2002, pursuant to Rule 206 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.206) and the Procedural Rules Applicable to Oil Pipeline Procedures (18 CFR 343.1(a)), Phillips Petroleum Company (Phillips) filed a Complaint in the captioned proceeding. Phillips alleges that Platte Pipe Line Company (Platte) has violated and continues to violate the Interstate Commerce Act, 49 U.S.C. App. 1 et seq., by charging unjust, unreasonable, unduly preferential, and unduly discriminatory rates for its pump-over service which transfers crude oil to the Frontier Pipeline Company at Casper, Wyoming, as more fully set forth in the Complaint.
Phillips requests that the Commission: (1) Examine Platte's challenged rates for its interstate pump-over service at Casper; (2) order refunds and/or reparations to Phillips, including appropriate interest thereon, for the applicable refund and/or reparation periods to the extent the Commission finds that such rates are unlawful; (3) determine just, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory rates for Platte's jurisdictional interstate pump-over service; (4) award Phillips reasonable attorneys' fees and costs; and (5) order such other relief as may be appropriate.
Phillips states that it has served the Complaint on Platte. Pursuant to Rule 343.3 of the Commission's Procedural Rules Applicable to Oil Pipeline Proceedings, Platte's response to this Complaint is due within 30 days of the filing of the Complaint.
