Take notice that on July 1, 2003, Texas Eastern Transmission, LP (Texas Eastern) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Seventh Revised Volume No. 1 and First Revised Volume No. 2, revised tariff sheets listed on Appendix A to the filing, to become effective August 1, 2003.

Texas Eastern states that these revised tariff sheets are filed pursuant to section 15.1 of the General Terms and Conditions of Texas Eastern's FERC Gas Tariff, Seventh Revised Volume No. 1, addressing the Electric Power Cost Adjustment. Texas Eastern states that section 15.1 provides that Texas Eastern shall file, to be effective each August 1, revised rates for each applicable zone and rate schedule based upon the projected annual electric power costs required for the operation of transmission compressor stations with electric motor prime movers. Texas Start Printed Page 41573Eastern also states that, as required by Commission orders approving the TIME and Freehold projects on Texas Eastern's system, all costs of electric power compression required for the incremental services under the TIME and Freehold projects are assigned to the incremental services.

Texas Eastern states that the revised tariff sheets hereto reflect an increase in Texas Eastern's EPC Adjustment, effective August 1, 2003, such that, for example, the primary firm capacity reservation charges, usage rates and 100% load factor average costs for full Access Area Boundary service from the Access Area Zone ELA (East Louisiana) to the three market area zones are as follows:

ZoneReservationUsage100% LF
Market 1$0.019/dth$0.0015/dth$0.0021/dth

Market 3$0.085/dth$0.0067/dth$0.0095/dth
