GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR SERVICES - continued

 

For the purpose of funding of GRI's approved expenditures, this

Section establishes a GRI Adjustment Charge to be applicable to

all of Transporter's Rate Schedules as required and as set

forth on Sheet No. 4-D of Volume No. 1-A of this FERC Gas

Tariff; provided however, such charge shall not be applicable

to Shippers which are interstate pipelines and which include in

their rates a charge for RD&D expenditures, or to Shippers

which pay a charge for RD&D expenditures to a third party in

connection with third party transportation of gas. The GRI

Adjustment Charge shall be reflected as set forth on Sheet No.

4-D of Volume No. 1-A of this Tariff.

 

b. BASIS OF THE GRI ADJUSTMENT CHARGE

 

The Rate Schedules shall include an increment for a GRI

Adjustment Charge for RD&D. Such adjustment charge shall be

that increment, adjusted to Transporter's pressure base and

heating value, if required, which has been approved by Federal

Energy Regulatory Commission orders approving GRI's RD&D

expenditures. The GRI Adjustment Charge shall be reflected on

Sheet No. 4-D of Volume No. 1-A of this Tariff.

 

c. FILING PROCEDURE

 

The notice period and proposed effective date of filings

pursuant to this subsection shall be those permitted under the

Commission's Regulations unless, for a good cause shown, a

lesser notice period and different effective date is allowed by

valid Commission order. Any such filing shall not become

effective unless it becomes effective without suspension or

refund obligation.

 

d. VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS MECHANISM

 

Pursuant to the GRI Settlement approved by FERC order issued

April 29, 1998, at Docket Nos. RP97-149-003, et al., [(83 FERC

Para. 61,093 (1998))], Transporter and other pipelines have

agreed to be voluntary collection agents for Shippers who

voluntarily choose to contribute to GRI programs through a

"check-the-box" approach on pipelines' invoices. The amounts

collected pursuant to the "check-the-box" mechanism will not be

part of Transporter's jurisdictional rates and the FERC will

not review or approve any such amounts.
