As part of a request to increase annual revenues by approximately $147 million, Columbia Gas Transmission has asked the Federal Energy

Regulatory Commission (FERC) to approve a set of market-based rates for short-term firm transportation, interruptible transportation, temporary capacity release, and storage services (Docket No. RP95-408). The FERC accepted the filing, while suspending Columbia's tariff proposals and deferring consideration of market rates for the transportation and capacity-release services until it concludes a generic investigation of noncost-based pipeline rate issues (Docket No. RM95-6). The FERC noted, however, that market-based rates for storage service are appropriate where a pipeline lacks market power. Finding that Columbia had failed in the past to establish a lack of market power for storage, the FERC gave the pipeline 30 days to clarify its proposal. tLori A.
