Take notice that on November 17, 2010, the Natural Gas Supply Association, American Forest and Paper Association, Inc., American Public Gas Association, Independent Petroleum Association of America, and Process Gas Consumers Group (collectively, the Associations), filed in Docket No. RP11-1538-000, a petition pursuant to Rule 207(a)(5) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, requesting that the Commission exercise its authority under section 5 of the Natural Gas Act to enforce its policy regarding pipeline reservation charge crediting during outages and order pipelines to amend their tariffs in accordance with Commission policy.
Specifically, the Associations ask the Commission to ensure that: (1) All pipelines incorporate into their tariffs an acceptable sharing mechanism that allows for partial reservation charge credits during outages that are due to unexpected and uncontrollable force majeure events, and (2) all pipeline tariffs require full reservation charge credits to shippers during outages that are not due to unexpected and uncontrollable force majeure events.
Any person desiring to intervene or to protest in this proceeding must file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214) on or before 5 p.m. Eastern time on the specified comment date. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Anyone filing a motion to intervene or protest must serve a copy of that document on the Applicant. In reference to filings initiating a new proceeding, interventions or protests submitted on or before the comment deadline need not be served on persons other than the Applicant.
