Take notice that on October 11, 2005, Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA), on behalf of its interstate natural gas pipeline company membership, filed a petition requesting that the Commission waive an obligation imposed on pipelines by a 1998 settlement obligation in Docket No. RP97-391 to pass through to customers certain Gas Research Institute (GRI) refunds and, in lieu of that obligation, authorize the pipelines to make payments to certain charitable organizations to assist victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
INGAA states that the refund amounts are so small that it would be impractical to disburse them to individual customers, and that disbursing the refund to certain charities to aid victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita is preferable.
