PRELIMINARY STATEMENT

 

 

El Paso Natural Gas Company, hereinafter referred to as

"El Paso" is a "natural gas company" as defined by the Natural Gas Act

(52 Stat. 821, 15 U.S.C. 717-717w) and, as such, is subject to the

jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, hereinafter

referred to as "FERC" or "Commission."

 

El Paso's operations are described in the Preliminary

Statement contained in Volume No. 1 of El Paso's FERC Gas Tariff.

 

El Paso provides jurisdictional transportation services on

behalf of various shippers pursuant to individual contracts which were

entered into prior to the effective date of this Volume No. 1-A FERC Gas

Tariff. Said preexisting individual contracts, insofar as they provide

for transportation services other than those services which El Paso has

agreed to provide under authority of Part 284 of the Commission's

Regulations, have and will continue after the effective date of this

Volume No. 1-A FERC Gas Tariff, to be included as special rate schedules

in El Paso's Volume No. 2 FERC Gas Tariff. Moreover, from time to time

after the effective date of this Volume No. 1-A FERC Gas Tariff, El Paso

may undertake to provide jurisdictional transportation services as part

of new or renegotiated arrangements which are not susceptible to being

reflected in the form of transportation service agreement contained

herein or which otherwise are at variance with the uniform terms and

conditions which this Volume No. 1-A FERC Gas Tariff establishes. In

such circumstances, where the need for individualized contracts arise in

the context of new or renegotiated arrangements, such individualized

contracts may also continue to be reflected as special rate schedules to

be included in El Paso's Volume No. 2 FERC Gas Tariff.

 

El Paso is in the business of providing services to or for

others pursuant to written contracts containing or incorporating by

reference terms and conditions which are acceptable to El Paso. El Paso

specifically disclaims any undertaking on its part to provide service as

a common or public carrier of natural gas or other goods for hire.

Services which El Paso may provide under compulsion of emergency

circumstances involving public or private need or of governmental

directive shall not serve to constitute El Paso a common or public

carrier of natural gas or other goods for hire.

 

This FERC Gas Tariff is filed in compliance with Part 154,

Subchapter E, Chapter I, Title 18, of the Code of Federal Regulations.
