Take notice that on August 30, 2007, Empire State Pipeline and Empire Pipeline, Inc. (Empire) tendered for filing an executed firm transportation agreement with KeySpan Gas East Corporation d/b/a KeySpan Energy Delivery Long Island (KeySpan). Empire states that it is filing the executed firm transportation agreement with KeySpan pursuant to Ordering Paragraph Z of the Commission's December 21, 2006 order in this proceeding.
Empire states that pursuant to section 388.112 of the Commission's regulations, it is requesting privileged and confidential treatment of the negotiated rate exhibit (Exhibit B) attached to the firm transportation agreement with Empire. Empire explains that because the negotiated rate exhibit is competitively sensitive and its release at this time could unnecessarily harm the competitive position of the parties, it requests that the negotiated rate exhibit be exempted from the disclosure requirements of the Freedom of Information Act. Empire indicates that in compliance with Ordering Paragraph AA of the December 21, 2006 order, it will publicly file either the negotiated rate exhibit or numbered tariff sheets containing all required information not less than 90 days prior to commencement of service.
