JCE states that it acquired the facilities from Northern on January 30, 2012, because the Iowa Utility Board (IUB) requested that JCE install new odorization equipment on its existing facilities to comply with IUB pipeline safety regulations. JCE also states that prior to January 30, 2012, the ownership demarcation point between Northern and JCE was in the middle of the Mississippi River, making JCE’s facilities inaccessible for installing the required odorization equipment. JCE further states that its acquisition of the new facilities would not increase JCE’s ability to serve customers either inside or outside of its present service area determination. Finally, JCE asserts that the sole reason it seeks to amend its service area determination is that the newly acquired facilities appear to fall outside of the very limited service area determination in Iowa that the Commission previously authorized in 2006.
