Take notice that on February 17, 2004, Portland Natural Gas Transmission System (PNGTS) tendered for filing as Start Printed Page 8948part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Original Volume No. 1, the tariff sheets attached to the filing, to become effective on April 1, 2004.
PNGTS states that the purpose of its filing is to establish a new firm transportation service, i.e., “Hourly Reserve Service” (or “HRS”), which will be provided under a new Rate Schedule HRS.

PNGTS states that its provision of HRS service will not impair its ability to provide existing FT service and that PNGTS will provide HRS service from available system capacity; therefore no new facilities construction is required.
PNGTS states that copies of this filing are being served on all jurisdictional customers and interested State commissions.
