Kelliher, Chairman; Nora Mead Brownell, and Suedeen G. Kelly; Natural Gas Pipeline Negotiated Rate Policies and Practices; Order on Rehearing and Clarification Issued January 19, 2006. 1. Several parties 1 request rehearing and or clarification of the Commission’s July 9, 2003 Order in the captioned docket.2 In that order, the Commission modified its negotiated rate policies so that pipelines would no longer be permitted to enter into negotiated rate agreements that utilize basis differentials as a transportation pricing mechanism. Background 2. In 1996, the Commission permitted pipelines the opportunity to use negotiated rates as an alternative to costof-service ratemaking.3 Under the negotiated rate program, the pipeline and a shipper may negotiate rates that vary from a pipeline’s otherwise applicable cost-of-service tariff rate. However, a cost-based recourse rate must be maintained by the pipeline for customers that prefer traditional cost-ofservice rates and to mitigate market power if the pipeline unilaterally demands excess prices or withholds service. The Commission determined that the availability of the recourse rate would prevent pipelines from exercising market power by assuring that the customer always has the option of purchasing capacity at the just and reasonable tariff rate if the pipeline unilaterally demands excessive prices.4 1 Parties requesting rehearing or clarification are: Illinois Municipal Gas Agency; Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America and Kinder Morgan Interstate Gas Transmission, LLC; CenterPoint Energy Gas Transmission Company; Northern Natural Gas Company; MidAmerican Energy Company; BP America Production Company and BP Energy Company; American Public Gas Association; Williston Basin Interstate Pipeline Company; ANR Pipeline Company and Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company; American Gas Association; and Interstate Natural Gas Association of America. 2 Natural Gas Pipeline Negotiated Rates Policies and Practices, 104 FERC ¶ 61,134 (2003)(July 2003 Order). 3 The Commission’s negotiated rate policies were originally established in Alternatives to Traditional Cost-of-Service Ratemaking for Natural Gas Pipelines, Regulation of Negotiated Transportation Services, 74 FERC ¶ 61,076, order on clarification, 74 FERC ¶ 61,194, order on reh’g, 75 FERC ¶ 61,024 (1996). 4 Alternatives to Traditional Cost-of-Service Ratemaking for Natural Gas Pipelines, 74 FERC ¶ E:\FR\FM\26JAN1.SGM 26JAN1
