Take notice that on February 3, 2003, AIM Pipeline, LLC (AIM) filed, pursuant to section 284.123(b)(2) of the Commission's Regulations, a petition for rate approval for transportation services rendered pursuant to Section 311(a)(2) of the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978 (NGPA). AIM proposes a system-wide maximum interruptible transportation rate of $0.2711 per MMBtu effective February 1, 2003.
AIM's petition states that it is an intrastate pipeline company within the meaning of section 2(16) of the NGPA, 15 U.S.C. 3301(16). AIM provides interruptible transportation service pursuant to section 311(a)(2) of the NGPA through its facilities located in Mississippi.
Pursuant to section 284.123(b)(2)(ii), if the Commission does not act within 150 days of the date of this filing, the rates will be deemed to be fair and equitable and not in excess of an amount which interstate pipelines would be permitted to charge for similar transportation service. The Commission may, prior to the expiration of the 150 day period, extend the time for action or institute a proceeding to afford parties an opportunity for written comments and for the oral presentation of views, data, and arguments.

All such motions or protests must be filed with the Secretary of the Commission on or before March 3, 2003. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceedings.
