Take notice that on October 24, 2007, the Rockies Express Shipper (REX Shippers), pursuant to section 206 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedures, 18 CFR 385.206, filed a complaint against Northern Natural Gas Company (Northern) alleging that Northern (i) failed to post the availability of receipt point capacity at the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) Receipt Point on Northern, (ii) unlawfully tied access to REX Receipt Point capacity to new backhaul service which Northern was not authorized to offer, (iii) unlawfully discriminated against the REX Receipt Point and in favor of receipts of gas from Trailblazer, and (iv) imposed an unjust and unreasonable charge for backhaul service. As a remedy, inter alia the REX Shippers request the Commission to void Northern's previous open season and order Northern to conduct a new open season in compliance with Northern's Tariff and Commission regulations.
