Start Preamble January 4, 2007.

Take notice that on December 29, 2006, Texas Eastern Transmission, LP (Texas Eastern) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Seventh Revised Volume No. 1 and First Revised Volume No. 2, revised tariff sheets, as listed on Appendix B to the filing, to become effective February 1, 2007.

Texas Eastern states that these revised tariff sheets are filed pursuant to Section 15.1, Electric Power Cost (EPC) Adjustment, of the General Terms and Conditions of Texas Eastern's FERC Gas Tariff, Seventh Revised Volume No. 1. Texas Eastern states that Section 15.1 provides that Texas Eastern shall file, to be effective each February 1, revised rates for each applicable zone and rate schedule, based upon the projected annual EPC required for the operation of transmission compressor stations with electric motor prime movers. The revised tariff sheets also reflect the EPC Surcharge, which is designed to clear the balance in the Deferred EPC Account.

Texas Eastern states that all costs of electric power compression required for the incremental services under the Freehold Project and the M-1 Expansion Project are appropriately assigned to the incremental projects as required by the Commission orders certificating those projects. In addition, Texas Eastern states that it has based its EPC allocation to the TIME Project on the methodology set forth in the Commission-approved joint settlement in Docket Nos. RP03-542, et al.

Texas Eastern states that generally, the revised tariff sheets reflect an increase in Texas Eastern's EPC Adjustment. For example, the proposed rate changes to the primary firm capacity reservation charges, usage rates and 100% load factor average costs for full Access Area Boundary service from the Access Area Zone, East Louisiana, to the three market area zones are as follows:

ZoneReservationUsage100% load factor
Market 1$0.035/Dth$0.0012/Dth0.0024/Dth
Market 20.104/Dth0.0040/Dth0.0074/Dth
Market 30.152/Dth0.0056/Dth0.0106/Dth
