Dominion Transmission Inc.; Notice of Proposed Changes in FERC 
Gas Tariff

September 24, 2002.
    Take notice that on September 19, 2002, Dominion Transmission Inc. 
(DTI), tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, Third 
Revised Volume No. 1, revised tariff sheets listed at Appendix A of its 
filing. DTI requests an effective date of November 1, 2002 for its 
proposed tariff sheets.
    DTI states that the purpose of this filing is to comply with 
Article VII, Section G of the August 31, 1998, Stipulation and 
Agreement in Docket Nos. RP97-406, et al. (the RP97-406 Settlement), 
which provides for the gradual conversion of Rate Schedule GSS-II firm 
storage services, to service entitlements under Rate Schedules GSS and 
FT (FT-GSS service). Article VII, Section A provides for the final 15 
percent conversion of these service entitlements, effective November 1, 
2002. Article VII, Section G provides for DTI to revise base storage 
and transportation service rates at each stage of the conversion, as 
detailed in Appendix B of the RP97-406 Settlement. The conversion 
produces a slight increase to DTI's Rate Schedule GSS Demand and 
Capacity rates and its firm transportation Reservation Charges, and to 
the interruptible service rates that are derived from these rate 
elements.
    DTI states that its proposed tariff sheets reflect the final 
conversion of Rate Schedule GSS-II entitlements to Rate Schedule GSS 
service and related firm transportation. Because this is the final 
conversion of GSS-II under the RP97-406 Settlement, DTI also seeks to 
remove the GSS-II rates and the FT-GSS-II surcharge from its rate 
sheets. Furthermore, DTI has proposed to delete the GSS-II Rate 
Schedules and all references to FT-GSS-II and GSS-II from its tariff.
    DTI states that copies of this letter of transmittal and enclosures 
are being served upon DTI's customers and interested state commissions.
