DOMAC states that it purchases liquefied natural gas (LNG) imported by Distrigas LLC from various international sources. Distrigas LLC is a corporate affiliate of DOMAC. DOMAC then resells the LNG in vapor and liquid form to its customers located throughout the northeastern United States. DOMAC's customers include local distribution companies, gas marketers, and end-users, including electric power generation plants. DOMAC proposes to continue to make such sales of LNG in liquid and vapor form subject only to the Commission's jurisdiction under section 3 of the NGA, as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. DOMAC proposes that sales of vaporized LNG will be under flexible, negotiate contracts with market-responsive terms not subject to the Commission's jurisdiction. However, DOMAC proposes a Statement of Terms and Conditions for Liquid Service incorporating terms and conditions from the current Tariff, to apply only to liquid sales. DOMAC requests that the proposed abandonment of such sales pursuant to its amended certificate under section 7 of the NGA and the Terms of Liquid Service be effective as of April 1, 2008.
