In addition, Vector is proposing to add two new firm transportation services to its tariff.
Vector states that the purpose of this filing is to fulfill its obligation under Ordering Paragraph (I) of the certificate order issued May 27, 1999, in Docket Nos. CP98-131-000, et al. Ordering Paragraph (I) required Vector to make a Natural Gas Act (NGA) section 4 rate filing within three years from its in-Start Printed Page 34601service date either justifying the existing rates or proposing alternative rates.
Vector's in-service date was December 1, 2000. Vector states that its filing satisfies that requirement.
Vector is requesting an increase in the recourse rates for service under Rate Schedules FT-1, IT-1, and PALS, based on a cost of service of $134,911,668. Vector states that the presently pending rate for Rate Schedule TTS service in Docket No. RP02-479-002 and the existing rate for Rate Schedule MBA service are unchanged by this filing. Vector also is proposing recourse rates for two new firm transportation services, limited firm in Rate Schedule FT-L and hourly firm in Rate Schedule FT-H.
In addition to the rate change, Vector states that it is submitting various revised tariff sheets for the purpose of correcting and cleaning-up minor errors, making editorial corrections, clarifying certain tariff provisions, and deleting a section of the General Terms and Conditions (section 39) which is no longer applicable. Vector states that it also is electing to modify the terms of its Management of Balancing Agreement service to accommodate the requests of customers for a more broad-based service that could be used by customers who take interruptible service in addition to those who use firm transportation service.
Vector states that copies of its filing have been mailed to all customers and interested state commissions.
