Take notice that on September 19, 2005, Continental Resources, Inc., (Continental) pursuant to Rule 208 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedures, 18 CFR 385.206 and 18 CFR 343.1(a), filed a complaint in this proceeding. Continental states that Bridger Pipeline, LLC (Bridger) has violated and continues to violate sections 1(5), 2, 3(3) and 15 of the Interstate Commerce Act, 49 U.S.C., by charging unjust and unreasonable rates and charges for the interstate transportation of crude oil by pipeline and by including provisions in its tariffs which are unduly discriminatory and preferential.

Continental requests that the Commission: (1) Examine the challenged rates and charges collected by Bridger for transportation of crude oil and the challenged tariff provisions concerning crude oil sulfur restrictions applied to such transportation, (2) determine that Bridger's rates are unjust and unreasonable and that Bridger's challenged tariff provisions regarding crude oil sulfur restrictions are discriminatory and unduly preferential, (3) determine just, reasonable and non-discriminatory rates and tariff terms for Bridger's jurisdictional interstate services, (4) order reparations and/or refunds to Continental, including appropriate interest thereon, for the applicable reparations and refund period, (5) award Continental reasonable attorney's fees and costs; and (6) order such other relief as may be appropriate.

Continental states that it has served a copy of the Complaint on Bridger.
