Take notice that on August 31, 2006, High Island Offshore System, L.L.C. (HIOS) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Third Revised Volume No. 1, the tariff sheets listed in Appendix A to the filing, to become effective October 1, 2006.
HIOS states that the proposed rate changes result in an increase of $13.8 million in total system revenues from jurisdictional service based on the 12-month base period ending June 30, 2006, as adjusted for known and measurable changes through the nine month test period ending March 31, 2007. HIOS further states that the rate change is necessary to compensate HIOS for increases in its operating costs, depreciation expense, and negative salvage expenses and to provide a reasonable management fee. HIOS notes that the rate change is also needed to recognize significant reductions in transportation throughput. HIOS also proposes to implement certain firm service enhancements applicable to future services. Finally, HIOS is proposing a new Rate Schedule FT-3, using a term-differentiated rate design.
HIOS states that a full copy of its filing is being served on all jurisdictional customers, applicable state commissions and interested parties that have requested service.
