Take notice that on May 30, 2003, Eastern Shore Natural Gas Company (Eastern Shore) tendered for filing its annual Fuel Retention Adjustment filing pursuant to section 31 of the General Terms and Conditions of its FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1.
Eastern Shore states that Section 31, “Fuel Retention Adjustment”, specifies that with no less than thirty (30) days prior notice, Eastern Shore shall file with the Commission revised tariff sheets containing a re-determined Fuel Retention Percentage (FRP) for affected transportation rate schedules to be effective July 1 of each year. Such FRP is designed to reimburse Eastern Shore for the cost of its Gas Required for Operations (“GRO”) which consists of (a) gas used for compressor fuel and (b) gas otherwise used, lost or unaccounted for, in its operations. Eastern Shore states that its FRP is calculated by determining the GRO quantities attributable to system-wide operations for the affected transportation rate schedules using the last twelve (12) month period for which actual data is available and then dividing such quantity by the transportation quantities received by Eastern Shore for the corresponding twelve (12) month period.
Eastern Shore states that as shown in its filing, Eastern Shore's calculated FRP is .64 %, an increase of .34 % from the current FRP in effect.
Eastern Shore states that copies of its filing has been mailed to its customers and interested 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 20426, 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.
