Take notice that on April 19, 2004, Algonquin Gas Transmission Company (Algonquin) filed a motion to withdraw its pleadings and terminate the proceedings in Docket Nos. RP04-24-000, 001, 002, and 003, as a result of reaching a Settlement Agreement. Algonquin requests expedited treatment of its motion.
Specifically, in its motion, Algonquin requests that the Commission: (i) approve the withdrawal of the Algonquin FERC filings in Docket Nos. RP04-24-000, 001, 002, and 003; (ii) terminate, as of the date of such order, in these dockets numbers, including the hearing procedures established by the Commission; and (iii) provide any necessary authorizations for Algonquin's system operations during the pendency of these proceedings, as they pertain to services provided on the AFT-1(X-38) and AFT-CL(X-37) facilities.
Algonquin states that it is seeking the Commission's approval to withdraw its pleadings and terminate these proceedings as a result of reaching a Settlement Agreement with USGen New England, Inc. (USGen). Algonquin states that granting this motion would resolve all issues raised in these proceedings in a manner that is consistent with the Commission's prior orders. Additionally, Algonquin states that the termination of these proceedings will not harm Algonquin's other customers, since the terms of the Settlement Agreement will only affect USGen.
