Take notice that on May 1, 2003, Granite State Gas Transmission Company (Granite State) tendered for filing to its FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No.1, First Revised Sheet No. 309A, bearing a proposed effective date of June 1, 2003.
Granite State states that it is submitting this filing to incorporate into its tariff the Commission's pronouncements in Tenaska Marketing Ventures v. Northern Border Pipeline Company, 99 FERC ¶ 61,182 (2002) (Tenaska), and to clarify the treatment in limited situations in which a replacement shipper's service agreement may be terminated when the associated primary contract (i.e. the releasing shipper's contract) has been terminated. Granite State states that in Tenaska, the Commission clarified that unless the pipeline's tariff explicitly provides for termination, a capacity release contract will remain in force following termination of the underlying contract through which the released capacity was made available.
Granite State states that copies of its filing have been mailed to all firm customers, interruptible customers, and affected state commissions.
Any person desiring to be heard or to protest said filing should file a motion to intervene or a protest with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC Start Printed Page 2559420426, in accordance with sections 385.214 or 385.211 of the Commission's rules and regulations.

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. Any person wishing to become a party must file a motion to intervene.
