Sea Robin Pipeline Company; Notice of Proposed Changes in FERC 
Gas Tariff

June 9, 1997.
    Take notice that on June 4, 1997, Sea Robin Pipeline Company (Sea 
Robin) tendered for filing as part of its FERC Gas Tariff, First 
Revised Volume No. 1, the following revised Tariff sheets in compliance 
with the Commission's Order No. 587 and the Commission's May 20, 1997 
order in this docket, to become effective June 1, 1997.

First Substitute Fifth Revised Sheet No. 7
First Substitute Second Revised Sheet No. 95

    On July 17, 1996, the Commission issued Order No. 587 in Docket No. 
RM96-1-000 which revised the Commission's regulations governing 
interstate natural gas pipelines to require such pipelines to follow 
certain standardized business practices issued by the Gas Industry 
Standards Board (GISB) and adopted by the Commission in said Order. 18 
CFR 284.10(b). On May 20, 1997, the Commission issued an order in this 
docket in response to Sea Robin's March 28, 1997, filing to comply with 
Order No. 587. The order required Sea Robin to revise and submit a 
compliance filing to be effective June 1, 1997. Sea Robin was directed 
to include in its tariff filing a general incorporation of GISB 
Standards 2.3.16-2.3.20 and a Model Business Trading Agreement for EDI 
    The Commission also directed Sea Robin to include on its rate 
sheets the volumetric capacity release rate and the fuel and company 
use rate. In conjunction with the compliance filing, Sea Robin requests 
a waiver of the Commission's Regulations to implement Version 1.1 of 
GISB Standard 5.3.22--the methodology for calculating the volumetric 
capacity release rate. Such version is proposed to be implemented 
November 1, 1997, as required by Commission Order No. 587-C, and the 
calculation in Version 1.1 is the methodology that Sea Robin has been 
using prior to the June 1, 1997, implementation of the GISB Standards.
    Any person desiring to protest this filing should file a protest 
with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, N.E., 
Washington, D.C. 20426, in accordance with Section 385.211 of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedures. All such protests must 
be filed in accordance with Section 154.210 of the Commission's 
Regulations. 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 in 
the Public Reference Room.
