Background
On June 30, 2000, the Commission approved Section 19.2 of the General Terms and
Conditions (“GT&C”) of MRT’s FERC Gas Tariff (“Tariff”) in Mississippi River Transmission
Corporation, 91 FERC ¶ 61,342 (2000), which provides MRT and its Customers the ability to

jurisdictional contracts, including service agreements, to be filed as “tariff records” which are to be

III.
Statement of the Nature, the Reasons, and the Basis for the Proposed Changes
On May 1, 2014, MRT filed for approval in Docket No. RP14-836-000 a negotiated rate
agreement, TSA No. 5680, providing parking transportation service to LER under Rate Schedule
PALS. On May 22, 2014, the Commission issued a delegated letter order accepting the filing. As
described in the May 1 transmittal letter, the parties have agreed on a rate structure which
includes a potential incremental payment which can be determined only following the close of
the Service Month based on that prior month’s activities. An incremental payment has been
calculated for the month of March 2015, in the amount of $3,538.00. Accordingly, the executed
Attachment A, attached as Appendix A,5 documents the amount of the incremental payment for
the month of March 2015, which will replace the Attachment A previously submitted at Section
2.3.1 by MRT in Docket No. RP15-614-000. MRT hereby confirms the TSA, as supplemented
herein, does not deviate in any material aspect from the applicable Rate Schedule PALS Form of
Service Agreement in the Tariff.
MRT requests that the Commission grant MRT any waivers of the Commission’s
Regulations (including the 30-day notice period prescribed in 18 C.F.R. §154.207) which are
necessary to place the tariff record into effect April 10, 2015. Additionally, MRT requests all
such further relief and waivers as may be appropriate to permit the parties to implement the
transaction as contemplated.
IV.
Components of the Filing.
In accordance with Section 154.7(a)(1) of the Commission’s Regulations, MRT submits
herewith an eTariff XML filing package containing this transmittal letter and all components of
the filing, filed as a zip (compressed) file, as listed below:
Appendix A – Clean version of Section 2.3.1; and
Appendix B – Marked version of Section 2.3.1
V.
