additional filings, as necessary, to reflect periodic changes in

Transportation Costs. Pipeline shall include in each filing of its

TCRA computations showing the derivation of such Adjustment.


15.2 Calculation Period and Rate Determinants. The Transportation

Cost Calculation Period ("Calculation Period") shall be the

twelve-month period commencing with the effective date of each

of Pipeline's TCRA filings referenced in Section 15.1 above.

The term "Rate Determinants" means the currently effective

Reservation and projected Usage billing units for each of

the Applicable Rate Schedules for the Calculation Period.


15.3 Determination of TCRA.


A. Current Transportation Costs shall equal $37,484,997 per

year in total (allocated $3,658,453 to Storage Demand,

$196,837 to GSS TE service, $24,343,995 to Transportation

Reservation and $9,285,712 to Transportation Usage). The

Current Account No. 858 Base Rate for each rate component

of each Rate Schedule shall be determined by dividing the

Current Transportation Costs by the applicable Rate

Determinants. Cost allocation and rate design will be

done in a manner that maintains Pipeline's then-effective

cost allocation and rate design, i.e., the cost allocation

and rate design that underlies Pipeline's rates which have

been either approved by the Commission or accepted by the

Commission to be effective subject to refund.


B. Pipeline will file and make effective new Current Account

No. 858 Base Rates as part of Pipeline's Annual Filing

made each November 1 and as part of Pipeline's future

general rate filings made under Section 4 of the Natural

Gas Act and shall bear the burden of proof on the

reasonableness of such Account No. 858 Base Rates.


C. The TCRA Surcharge shall be the rates derived from the

Unrecovered Transportation Cost Account balances pursuant

to Section 15.4.
