(Complainants) filed a formal complaint against Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation (Respondent), requesting the Commission to direct the Respondent to cease and desist from implementing unilaterally substantial changes to its current primary delivery points under currently effective contracts and new services, though actions that are not authorized under its tariff and are contrary to law.
The Complainants further request emergency relief to require the Respondent to cease and desist from unilaterally compelling its firm shippers to amend the primary delivery points under their contracts by establishing an arbitrary deadline of July 31, 2008, for making elections for service at the new primary delivery points, or otherwise face the potential inability to continue to receive firm services in accordance with their currently effective contracts.
The Complainants have requested fast track processing of the complaint.
The Complainants state that a copy of the complaint has been served on the Respondent.
