28. GAS RESEARCH INSTITUTE FUNDING CHARGE FOR RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND
The Pipeline has joined with other gas enterprises in the formation
of, and participation in the activities and financing of Gas
Research Institute (GRI), an Illinois not for profit corporation.
GRI has been organized for the purpose of sponsoring Research,
Development and Demonstration (RD&D) programs in the field of
natural and manufactured gas for the purpose of assisting all
segments of the gas industry in providing adequate, reliable, safe,
economic and environmentally acceptable gas service for the benefit
of gas consumers.
For the purpose of funding for GRI's approved expenditures, this
Section establishes as part of the Pipeline's rate a charge for
RD&D by GRI, said charge to be recovered by a funding charge
adjustment provision applicable to Pipeline's Rate Schedules ITS,
IGS, VTS, VGS, FTS and FGS, provided, however, that such funding
charge for RD&D by GRI shall not be applicable to Customers which
are interstate pipelines and which include in their rates a charge
for RD&D by GRI. Customers with both gathering and transportation
services will be billed the GRI charge on only one service.
28.2 Basis for the GRI Charge
The Rate Schedules ITS, IGS, VTS, VGS, FTS and FGS specified
in Section 28.1 hereof shall include a GRI Funding Charge
Adjustment Provision for such RD&D activities by GRI. The unit
rate of such charge shall be the amount, adjusted to Company'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 current effective GRI charge is
$0.0147 per dth on all applicable nondiscounted commodity units and
nondiscounted one-part rates for transportation service.
Additionally, there will be an $.08 per dth per month demand or
reservation surcharge on all firm delivery entitlements.
28.3 Filing Procedure
The Gas Research Institute Funding Charge Adjustment Provision may
be placed into effect upon not less than 30 days notice unless, for
good cause shown, a lesser notice period is allowed by valid
FERC order. Any such filing shall not become effective unless it
becomes effective without suspension or refund obligation.
