Alternate Sheets

    Destin has requested an effective date of November 1, 1999.
    Destin states that the purpose of this instant filing is to adjust 
its rates under Rate Schedules FT-1, FT-2, and IT (i) to reflect its 
actual cost of constructing its Destin Pipeline Facilities and (ii) to 
reflect a lower depreciation rate. Specifically, Destin proposes to 
increase the maximum Monthly Reservation Rate under Rate Schedules FT-1 
and FT-2 from $7.19 to $8.22 and the daily Reservation Rate under Rate 
Schedules FT-1 and FT-2 and the Daily Overrun Rate under Rate Schedule 
FT-2 from $0.24 (inclusive of the transportation component) to $0.274.
    Destin also seeks to increase the maximum transportation rate under 
Rate Schedule IT from 24.0 cents to 27.4 cents. Destin states that 
these rates are set forth in the primary tariff sheets.
    Destin also filed alternate tariff sheets that reflect only the 
rate increase resulting from the increase in the capital cost of the 
Destin Pipeline facilities. Destin states that the alternate sheets are 
posed to preserve the timeliness of the compliance rate increase filing 
in the event of a challenge to Destin's proposed depreciation rate 
    Destin states that copies of the filing will be served upon its 
shippers and interested state commissions.
    Any person desiring to be heard or to protest said filing should 
file a motion to intervene or a protest with the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20426, in 
accordance with Sections 385.214 or 385.211 of the Commission's Rules 
and Regulations. All such motions or 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 proceedings. Any person wishing to become a party must 
file a motion to intervene. Copies of this filing are on file with the 
Commission and are available for public inspection in the Public 
Reference Room. This filing may be viewed on the web at http://
