Take notice that on December 9, 2002, Dominion Transmission, Inc. (DTI) tendered for filing to be part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1, First Revised Sheet No. 308, with an effective date of February 1, 2003.
DTI states that this tariff filing is intended to eliminate potential ambiguity in DTI's Rate Schedule GSS by clarifying that the holder of storage capacity at the start of each Winter Period is responsible for compliance with DTI's minimum turnover requirements. DTI explains that the minimum turnover provisions are intended to provide an incentive for customers to withdraw volumes from storage during the Winter Period consistent with DTI's operational requirements. DTI explains that the minimum turnover requirements are seasonal, not monthly and that this flexibility renders the tariff provisions arguably ambiguous with respect to their application in the event of capacity release during the Winter Period.
DTI states that the only reasonable interpretation of the minimum turnover provisions places the responsibility for the required withdrawals on the only shipper with the opportunity to ensure that withdrawals are made during the Winter Period—that is, the shipper that holds the capacity on November 1 of each year.
DTI states that copies of its letter of transmittal and enclosures have been served upon DTI's customers and interested state commissions.
