This section establishes the procedures under which Transporter
will recover from Shippers under Transporter's sales Rate
Schedules CD-1, WPS-1, CD-2, WPS-2, SF-1 and SF-2 the total
jurisdictional portion of Buyout-Buydown Obligations paid by
Transporter pursuant to applicable tariff provisions of its
upstream pipeline supplier, Colorado Interstate Gas Company
("CIG"), on an as billed basis.
25.2 BASIS OF CIG's BILLING.
CIG has filed in Docket Nos. RP89-98 and RP89-133 to recover a
portion of its Buyout-Buydown Costs from its jurisdictional
customers. For the purposes of calculating each customer's
Purchase Deficiency, CIG has utilized a Base Period of Fiscal Year
1982 and a Deficiency Period of Fiscal Years 1983 through 1988.
CIG's fiscal years are the 12 month periods ending on September
30 of the year indicated. Pursuant to this calculation, CIG has
allocated $218,984, as adjusted, as Transporter's fixed charge
Buyout-Buydown Obligation with respect to Buyout-Buydown Costs
incurred by CIG.
CIG has also filed, in Docket Nos. RP89-178, TM90-4-32 and
TM90-5-32, to flow through the Buyout-Buydown Obligation assigned
to CIG by its former pipeline supplier, Northwest Pipeline
Corporation ("Northwest") and recover a portion of this obligation
from its jurisdictional customers. For the purpose of calculating
each customer's Purchase Deficiency, CIG utilized Northwest's Base
Period of Calendar Years 1982 and 1983 and a Deficiency Period of
Calendar Years 1984 through 1988. Pursuant to this calculation,
CIG has allocated $26,889, as adjusted, (Docket No. TM90-5-32) as
Transporter's fixed charge Buyout-Buydown Obligation with respect
to the Buyout-Buydown Obligation incurred by CIG from Northwest.
