Take notice that on February 6, 2014, the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) and its members filed a request for the Commission to exercise its emergency powers pursuant to Section 1(15) of the Interstate Commerce Act (ICA), to allow, or if necessary direct, Enterprise TE Products Pipeline Company LLC (Enterprise) to temporarily provide priority treatment to propane shipments from Mont Belvieu, Texas to locations in the Midwest and Northeast. NPGA submits that due to unique weather and other circumstances beyond the control of shippers, propane supplies throughout the country, particularly the Midwest and Northeast, have reached dangerously low levels. Specifically, NPGA requests that the Commission direct Enterprise to suspend the 81,000 Start Printed Page 8962barrel per day (bpd) it reserves for contract shippers of diluent and instead to provide up to 75,000 bpd of capacity to propane shipments beginning immediately and extending through the first week of March 2014. In addition, if necessary NPGA requests that the Commission direct Enterprise to reverse its ATEX Pipeline to allow for shipments of propane from south to north instead of the current ethane shipments which move north to south.
