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.
