Take notice that on February 18, 2004, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (Tennessee) tendered for filing tariff sheets to discontinue its Supply Area Volumetric Surcharge. Tennessee requests an effective date of February 1, 2004.
Tennessee states that pursuant to Article XXV of the General Terms and Conditions of its FERC Gas Tariff, Fifth Revised Volume No. 1, Tennessee recovers take or pay transition costs through a combination of demand and volumetric surcharges. Tennessee explains that pursuant to Article XXV, section 4.3 of the Tariff, Tennessee is to discontinue the Supply Area Volumetric Surcharge at the end of a month in which the balance in the Supply Area Volumetric Transition Cost subaccount declines to zero. Tennessee states that during the production month of January 2004, the balance in the Supply Area Volumetric Transition Cost subaccount declined to zero. Consequently, Tennessee is discontinuing the Supply Area Volumetric Surcharge effective February 1, 2004. Tennessee indicates that, pursuant to Article XXV, section 4.3 of the Tariff, the surcharge will be reinstated if the balance in the subaccount later becomes positive.
