Calais Pipeline Company, LLC will conduct a binding
open season for 1 billion cubic feet per day ("Bcf/day") of firm transportation service
through an approximately 20.5-mile proposed pipeline ("Calais Pipeline Project")
extending from the proposed Calais LNG Terminal in Calais, Maine, to a planned
interconnection with the pipeline system of Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline, L.L.C. in
Princeton, Maine. The proposed in-service date for the Calais Pipeline Project is 1st quarter 2014.
The open season will commence at 9 a.m. EDT on Friday, May 22, 2009, and end at
3 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 12, 2009.
The firm transportation service through the Calais Pipeline Project will be performed under Rate Schedule FTS to Calais Pipeline's pro forma FERC Gas Tariff, which will be filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and will be consistent with the open-access requirements of Part 284 of FERC's regulations.
Shippers taking firm service on the Calais Pipeline Project will pay a monthly reservation rate under Calais Pipeline's Rate Schedule FTS, which shall equal the maximum recourse rate approved by FERC for service under Rate Schedule FTS. All applicable surcharges, commodity charges, electric power charges and fuel retention, if any, under Rate Schedule FTS associated with the Calais Pipeline Project, as amended from time to time, will also apply.
Shippers wishing to subscribe to the firm transportation capacity through the Calais
