FERC Issues Order to Northwest Pipeline GP on Fuel Reimbursement Factors

The U.S. Department of Energy's Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued delegated order to Northwest Pipeline GP. On February 29, 2012, as amended on March 5, 2013, Northwest Pipeline GP (Northwest) filed revised tariff records to update the fuel reimbursement factors used to provide in-kind reimbursement for Northwest's fuel gas used and gas lost and unaccounted-for for its various transportation services. Northwest's section 14.12 of its General Terms and Conditions requires the factors for the transportation rate schedules to be determined semi-annually to become effective April 1 and October 1 of each year, and the factors for the storage rate schedules to be determined effective April 1 of each year. This acceptance for filing shall not be construed as a waiver of the requirements of section 7 of the Natural Gas Act, as amended; nor shall it be construed as constituting approval of the referenced filing or of any rate, charge, classification, or any rule, regulation, or practice affecting such rate or service contained in tariff; nor shall such acceptance be deemed as recognition of any claimed contractual right or obligation associated therewith; and such acceptance is without prejudice to any findings or orders which have been or may hereafter be made by the Commission in any proceeding now pending or hereafter instituted by or against company.

FERC Issues Notice of Availability of Environmental Assessment for the Proposed South Seattle Delivery Lateral Expansion Project of Northwest Pipeline GP

The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the South Seattle Delivery Lateral Expansion Project, proposed by Northwest Pipeline GP (Northwest) in Docket No. CP12-471-000. Northwest requests authorization to upgrade 4.0 miles of natural gas pipeline from 10- to 16-inch-diameter in King County, Washington, which would increase its natural gas transportation capacity by 74,850 dekatherms per day in the south Seattle market area. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the South Seattle Delivery Lateral Expansion Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. FERC concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. FERC mailed copies of the EA to federal, state, and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; potentially affected landowners and other interested individuals and groups; newspapers and libraries in the project area; and parties to this proceeding.
