Trunkline LNG states that the negotiated rate with its customer, BG LNG Services, LLC (BG LNG), is based on a 40 year depreciable life for the Infrastructure Enhancement Project. The facilities will be new construction and of a durable long-lived nature. Therefore, Trunkline LNG proposes to depreciate the life of the assets over a term of 40 years instead of 20 years as indicated in the March 31, 2006 application. The revision results in the recourse rate decreasing from $1.2616 per Dt to $1.1378 per Dt and the composite depreciation rate of 5.0% will be 2.5%.
Any questions regarding the application are to be directed to William W. Grygar, Vice President of Rates and Regulatory Affairs, 5444 Westheimer Road, Houston, Texas 77056-5306; phone number (713) 989-7000.
