Start Preamble December 13, 2006.

Take notice that on December 12, 2006, Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company (Tesoro) filed a formal complaint against SFPP, L.P. pursuant to Rule 206 of Practice and Procedure of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission; the Procedural Rules Applicable to Oil Pipeline Proceedings; 16 of the Interstate Commerce Act; and section 1803 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992.

Complainant alleges that SFPP's West Line and Calnev Line rates are unjust and unreasonable. Complainant requests that the Commission determine that the rates established by SFPP for the shipment of refined petroleum products are so substantially in excess of SFPP's actual costs as to be unjust and unreasonable; prescribe new rates that are just and reasonable for the shipment of refined petroleum products on SFPP's West Line and Calnev Line; determine that SFPP overcharged Tesoro for shipments of refined petroleum products on SFPP's West Line and Calnev Line from at least December 12, 2004 to the present, and is continuing to overcharge Tesoro for such shipments; order SFPP to pay refunds, reparations and damages, plus interest to Tesoro for shipments made by Tesoro on the West Line and Calnev Line from December 12, 2004; determine that section 1803 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 does not prevent Tesoro from filing this Complaint or the Commission from ordering the relief requested above; award Tesoro its costs and attorneys fees in prosecuting this Complaint; grant Tesoro's Motion to Consolidate this Complaint with on-going Commission proceedings in Dockets Nos. OR03-5-000, OR04-3-000, OR05-4-000; and grant Tesoro such other, different or Start Printed Page 76315additional relief as the Commission may determine to be appropriate.
