Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-02
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
In this Final Rule, the Commission adds regulations to require certain major non-interstate natural gas pipelines to post daily scheduled volume information and design capacity for certain points. The Commission also revises its regulations to require interstate natural gas pipelines to post information regarding the provision of no-notice service. The posting requirements will facilitate price transparency in markets for the sale or transportation of physical natural gas in interstate commerce to implement section 23 of the Natural Gas Act, 15 U.S.C. 717t-2 (2000 & Supp. V 2005).

Conduct of Employees and Former Employees; Exemption From Post-Employment Restrictions for Communications; Furnishing Scientific or Technological Information
Document Number: E8-28267
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-12-01
Agency: Department of Energy
The Department of Energy (DOE) today issues a proposed rule to establish procedures under which a former employee of the executive branch may obtain approval from DOE to make communications to DOE solely for the purpose of furnishing scientific or technological information during the period the former employee is subject to post- employment restrictions set forth in 18 U.S.C. 207(a), (c), and (d). The proposed rule also would further define the term ``scientific or technological information,'' for which an exemption is provided by 18 U.S.C. 207(j)(5).
Promotion of a More Efficient Capacity Release Market
Document Number: E8-28217
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-01
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is issuing an order addressing the requests for clarification and/or rehearing of Order No. 712 [73 FR 37058, June 30, 2008]. Order No. 712 revised Commission regulations governing interstate natural gas pipelines to reflect changes in the market for short-term transportation services on pipelines and to improve the efficiency of the Commission's capacity release program. The order permitted market based pricing for short term capacity releases and facilitated asset management arrangements (AMA) by relaxing the Commission's prohibition on tying and on its bidding requirements for certain capacity releases. The Commission further clarified in the order that its prohibition on tying does not apply to conditions associated with gas inventory held in storage for releases of firm storage capacity. Finally, the Commission waived its prohibition on tying and bidding requirements for capacity releases made as part of state-approved open access programs. This order generally denies rehearing and clarifies Order No. 712.

Western Electricity Coordinating Council Regional Reliability Standard Regarding Automatic Time Error Correction
Document Number: E8-28088
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-11-26
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
Pursuant to section 215(d)(2) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission proposes to approve a regional Reliability Standard, BAL-004-WECC-01 (Automatic Time Error Correction), submitted to the Commission by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). As a separate action, pursuant to section 215(d)(5) of the FPA, the Commission proposes to direct WECC to develop several modifications to the regional Reliability Standard. The proposed regional Reliability Standard would require balancing authorities within the Western Interconnection to maintain interconnection frequency within a predefined frequency profile and ensure that time error corrections are effectively conducted in a manner that does not adversely affect the reliability of the Interconnection.
