Board of Scientific Counselors (BOSC), Executive Committee Meeting-December 2008, 72041-72042 [E8-28126]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 26, 2008 / Notices Final Rule to change the financial forms and reporting requirements for natural gas pipelines in order to enhance the transparency of financial reporting by interstate natural gas pipelines and better reflect the current market and cost information. Among the changes were new reporting requirements that require natural gas companies to provide detailed information regarding the acquisition and disposition of fuel use and lost and unaccounted-for gas.19 With this new information, shippers will be better able to use the section 5 complaint process to address fuel cost over-recovery by a pipeline. 12. Finally, the operation of the interstate pipeline system involves a significant amount of fuel use and lost and unaccounted-for gas to deliver supplies to market. Fuel gas charges now make up a greater percentage of the overall interstate transportation rate than they have in the past. Such considerations reinforce the need to improve the efficiency of our existing infrastructure. While the parties generally commented that fuel savings incentive mechanisms could be helpful in reducing fuel use and, therefore, fuel costs, they believed that such mechanisms should be developed by the parties in individual proceedings. In light of those comments, the Commission will take a case-by-case approach at this time. In a recent order, the Commission ordered a technical conference to consider a three-year experimental fuel incentive mechanism proposed by Texas Gas Transmission, L.L.C. and what changes, if any, might be necessary or appropriate.20 The Commission concludes that case-by-case consideration of incentive proposals will assist in the development of the Commission’s policies concerning pipelines’ recovery of fuel costs, and encourages pipelines to work with their customers to develop these mechanisms. 13. For these reasons, Docket No. RM07–20–000 is terminated. The Commission orders: Docket No. RM07–20–000 is terminated. By the Commission. Nathaniel J.
