Take notice that on January 2, 2004, Iroquois Gas Transmission System, L.P. (Iroquois) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, First Revised Volume No. 1, Original Sheet No. 4C, proposed to become effective on February 2, 2004.
Iroquois states that the proposed changes would increase revenues from service on Iroquois' Eastchester Extension Project (Eastchester Project) by $16,990,556 million, based on the 12-month period ended September 30, 2003, as adjusted for changes projected to occur through June 30, 2004.
Iroquois states that the purpose of its filing is to establish incremental rates for the Eastchester Project, and resulting secondary access rates to Eastchester capacity from Iroquois' existing, non-expansion system. Iroquois further states that its rate filing is consistent with the Commission's directives in the Eastchester certificate orders in Docket No. CP00-232, and with section 1.2 of Iroquois' August 29, 2003, rate settlement in Docket No. RP03-589. Additionally, Iroquois states that the proposed rate increase is necessary to recover the higher actual costs of constructing the Eastchester Project, as well as allocated administrative and general costs, direct operation and maintenance costs, taxes, depreciation expense based on Iroquois' approved transportation depreciation rate, and an adequate return on its investment.
