Take notice that on December 3, 2003, pursuant to Rule 206 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.206 (2003), the Indicated Shippers (BP America Inc. and BP Energy Company; ChevronTexaco Exploration & Production Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc.; ConocoPhillips Company; and ExxonMobil Gas & Power Marketing Company, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation) filed a Complaint Requesting Fast Track Processing against Columbia Gulf Transmission Company (CGT). The Indicated Shippers allege that CGT has failed to comply with Section 4 of the Natural Gas Act as well as the Commission's regulations, 18 CFR 154.1(b), 18 CFR 154.204 and 18 CFR 284.7(c), by posting quality limitations through long-term critical notices in lieu of proposing changes to its tariff through a filing with the Commission.

The Indicated Shippers request that the Commission order CGT to cease and desist from its current practice of posting long-term critical notices to impose quality specifications.
