Transwestern Pipeline Co., Notice of Proposed Changes in FERC Gas 

March 18, 1994.
    Take notice that on March 16, 1994, Transwestern Pipeline Company 
(Transwestern), tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, 
Second Revised Volume No. 1, the following tariff sheets, with a 
proposed effective date of April 1, 1994:

9th Revised Sheet No. 87
8th Revised Sheet No. 88
17th Revised Sheet No. 89
6th Revised Sheet No. 89A

    On June 9, 1993, as amended July 16, 1993, Transwestern filed 
tariff sheets in which it sought to modify its take-or-pay, buy-out and 
buy-down mechanism (``Transition Cost Recovery'' or ``TCR'' mechanism) 
in order to recover certain take-or-pay, buy-out, buy-down, and 
contract reformation costs. On July 30, 1993, the Commission accepted 
and suspended the filings, subject to conditions. On August 30, 1993, 
in Docket Nos. RP93-56-002, RP93-86-002, RP93-139-002, the California 
Public Utilities Commission and Southern California Gas Company filed a 
joint request for rehearing of the July 30 order requesting that the 
Commission remove the litigation exception provision from 
Transwestern's tariff prospectively. In its order on rehearing on March 
1, 1994, the Commission found that the litigation exception language 
should not apply to future filings and ordered it removed. Transwestern 
states that the purpose of this filing is to file tariff sheets to 
comply with such order.
    Transwestern also states that in addition to changes necessitated 
by removing litigation exception language, 17th Revised Sheet No. 89 is 
being submitted in order to correct an error made on 16th Revised Sheet 
No. 89 in which the amount for TCR No. 13 was inadvertently changed to 
an incorrect amount. The correct amount, $20,100,000, was approved by 
the Commission in Docket No. RP93-139 on 15th Revised Sheet No. 89.
    Transwestern states that copies of the filing were served on its 
gas utility customers, interested state commissions, and all parties to 
this proceeding.
    Any person desiring to protest said filing should file a protest 
with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 825 North Capitol 
Street, NE., Washington, DC, 20426, in accordance with Rule 211 of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure. All such protests should 
be filed on or before March 25, 1994. Protests will be considered by 
the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but 
will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Copies of 
this filing are on file with the Commission and are available for 
public inspection.
