Take notice that on June 26, 2003, Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Corporation (Transco), filed in Docket No. CP03-73-000 an application, in abbreviated form, pursuant to section 7(b) of the Natural Gas Act, as amended, and the Rules and Regulations of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, for an order permitting and approving abandonment of a transportation and exchange service provided to The Brooklyn Union Gas Company (Brooklyn Union) and Dominion Transmission, Inc (DTI) under Transco's Rate Schedule X-99 and a transportation service provided to Brooklyn Union, as more fully set forth in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to public inspection.
In such application, Transco states that it entered into an interruptible transportation and exchange agreement with Brooklyn Union and DTI, on July 1, 1975, under which Transco transports gas on an interruptible basis for Brooklyn Union, now doing business as KeySpan Energy Delivery New York, on an interruptible basis and exchanges gas with DTI, successor to Consolidated Gas Supply Corporation, under Rate Schedule X-99. Transco further states that it entered into an interruptible transportation agreement with Brooklyn Union on February 14, 1983, under which Transco transports gas, on an interruptible basis, for Brooklyn Union under Rate Schedule X-248.
In the instant application, Transco seeks authorization to abandon both the transportation and exchange agreement with Brooklyn Union and DTI and the transportation agreement with Brooklyn Union, effective on the date of the Commission's order authorizing the abandonments, pursuant to Brooklyn Union's and DTI's election to terminate their service agreements.
Transco states that the Primary Term of the service agreement under Rate Schedule X-99 ended on September 24, 1976. Transco further states that by letter dated January 9, 2001, Brooklyn Union and DTI provided Transco sufficient notice to terminate the subject agreement under Rate Schedule X-99 as of the date of the Commission's order authorizing the abandonment of service. Transco indicates that the Primary Term of the service agreement under Rate Schedule X-248 ended on January 21, 1983. Transco explains that, by letter dated April 28, 2003, Brooklyn Union provided Transco sufficient notice to terminate the subject service agreement under Rate Schedule X-248 as of the date of the Commission's order authorizing the abandonment of service.
