FERC Opens Investigations into Rates on Two Interstate Gas Pipelines

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) today opened investigations into rates charged by two interstate natural gas companies – Wyoming Interstate Company (WIC) and Viking Gas Transmission Company – to determine if they are over-recovering their costs, resulting in unjust and unreasonable rates for customers.

Today’s orders give each company 75 days to file a full cost and revenue study. The investigations stem from Form 2 cost and revenue information provided by WIC and Viking for 2010 and 2011. FERC staff’s analysis of this information indicates that current rates may allow the companies to recover revenue substantially more than their actual costs of service.
