Take notice that on November 22, 2002, Florida Gas Transmission Company (FGT) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1, the following tariff sheets, with an effective date of January 1, 2003: Fifty-Sixth Revised Sheet No. 8A, Forty-Eighth Revised Sheet No. 8A.01, Forty-Eighth Revised Sheet No. 8A.02, Sixth Revised Sheet No. 8A.04, Fifty-First Revised Sheet No. 8B, Forty-Fourth Revised Sheet No. 8B.01.
FGT states that it is filing the above referenced tariff sheets pursuant to the Gas Research Institute's (GRI) Year 2003 Research, Development and Demonstration Program and 2003-2007 Five-Year Plan as approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Order issued September 19, 2002 in Docket No. RP02-354. For the year of 2003, the funding mechanism includes the approved GRI demand charges of 5.0 cents per MMBtu per month (.16¢ per MMBtu stated on a daily basis underlying FGT's reservation charges) to be applicable to firm shippers with load factors exceeding 50%, 3.10 cents per MMBtu per month (.10¢ per MMBtu stated on a daily basis underlying FGT's reservation charges) to be applicable to firm shippers with load factors of 50% or less and a volumetric charge of 0.40 cents per MMBtu to be applicable to all non-discounted interruptible rates and to the usage portion of two-part rates. In addition, the 2003 funding mechanism includes a volumetric charge of 0.60 cents per MMBtu to be applicable to all one-part small customer rates. This funding mechanism provides for a decrease in GRI charges as compared to the currently effective 2002 GRI charges.
