Section 14.2 of Southern's Tariff provides for an annual reconciliation of Southern's storage costs to reflect differences between the cost to Southern of its storage gas inventory and the amount Southern receives for such gas arising out of (i) the purchase and sale of such gas in order to resolve shipper imbalances; and (ii) the purchase and sale of gas as necessary to maintain an appropriate level of storage gas inventory for system management purposes. In the instant filing, Southern submits the rate surcharge to the transportation component of its rates under Rate Schedules FT, FT-NN, and IT resulting from the fixed and realized losses it has incurred from the purchase and sale of its storage gas inventory. Southern proposes to reduce its Storage Cost Reconciliation Mechanism Surcharge from $.012/Dth to $.003/Dth to be effective January 1, 2003. Southern states that copies of the filing were served upon Southern's customers and interested state commissions.
