QUESTAR PIPELINE ACCEPTS OPEN-ACCESS CERTIFICATE FOR GAS STORAGE

Questar Pipeline Co. has accepted an open-access blanket certificate from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to provide natural gas storage service at its Clay Basin storage field in northeastern Utah.

Questar Pipeline filed an application in February for an open-access certificate for gas storage in the basin. FERC officials approved the certificate May 21, but the company immediately filed an emergency request for clarification or rehearing to address the cost of Clay Basin's cushion gas.A final order was issued a few days ago that clarified these issues.

The FERC also approved Questar Pipeline's request to increase its transmission annual working gas level from 7.5 billion cubic feet to 10 billion cubic feet, which allows the company to meet its sales services obligations to Mountain Fuel Supply Co. for demand during the winter heating season.
