FERC opens investigations into rates on two interstate gas pipelines

From the November 26, 2012 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published November 26, 2012

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has opened investigations into rates charged by two interstate natural gas companies—Wyoming Interstate Co. and Viking Gas Transmission Co.—to determine if they are over-recovering their costs, resulting in unjust and unreasonable rates for customers. In Nov. 15 orders, the commission gave each company 75 days to file a full cost and revenue study.
FERC staff estimates Wyoming Interstate’s return on equity to be 19.55 percent for 2010 and 18.51 percent for 2011, based on "Form 2" cost and revenue information provided by the pipeline. FERC staff estimates Viking’s return on equity to be 21.39 percent for 2010 and 21.75 percent for 2011.
