Start Preamble March 8, 2006.

Take notice that on March 6, 2006, Williams Energy Services, LLC and Williams Power Company, Inc. (Williams), filed a complaint against Mid-America Pipeline Company, LLC (MAPL) and Seminole Pipeline Company (Seminole) pursuant to section 13 (1) of the Interstate Commerce Act, 49 U.S. App. 13(1), and Rule 206 of the Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.206. Williams alleges that MAPL and Seminole have violated the Interstate Commerce Act by charging unjust and unreasonable rates for the transportation of natural gas liquids. Williams also alleges that: (1) The cost of providing service has not been properly allocated among the MAPL pipeline segments, (ii) transportation rate differentials between specific and separate “Groups” were unjustified, (iii) the MAPL and Seminole application of the Commission's “Joint Rate Policy” was inappropriate, (iv) MAPL cannot request a cost of service rate increase and an index rate increase during a single index year, (v) the Seminole rate increase is invalid, (vi) specific rate differentials are unjustified; and (vii) the MAPL revisions to an existing incentive rate program are unduly discriminatory.

Williams states that copies of the complaint have been served on the contacts for MAPL and Seminole as listed on the Commission's list of corporate officials.
