and Governmental

Affairs


Operational Highlights

  • System design is 1.75 Mdth/d.

    • Receipt point capacity is 3.95 Bcf/d.

    • Delivery point capacity is 5.70 Bcf/d, including 3.4 Bcf/d in California.

  • 97% of design capacity is contracted to California;

  • Delivery point capacity into SoCal is 1.385 Bcf/d.

  • Delivery point capacity into PG&E is .55 Bcf/d.

  • Post expansion load factor is 100.7% of design capacity.

    • Peak day delivery was 2,097,500 Dth on June 17, 2004.

    • Peak interruptible volumes reached 575 Mdth on July 8, 2004.

    • Average volume delivered to California delivery points is 1,420 Mdth/d

  • Capacity constraints of up to 300 Mdth/d persist at Wheeler Ridge and Kramer Junction, particularly in summer months.


Market Opportunities

  • 2 Bcf/d of California LDC core contracts will expire by August 2006.

  • 545 MMcf/d of non-core contracts held by SoCalGas will expire by August 2006.

  • The CPUC recently issued a proposed decision authorizing utilities to terminate contracts on El Paso, Transwestern and Gas Transmission Northwest, and approving an expedited process to grant pre-approval of new replacement contracts.

  • Supply diversity is a stated policy objective of the CPUC and the utilities.

  • Kern River will compete for re-contracting volumes as the utilities and the CPUC seek to achieve greater supply diversity.


Market Opportunities

  • 1,200 MW Moapa Power Plant - Nevada Power has announced it will purchase the plant from Duke and complete construction bymid-2006. 3.5-mile lateral to serve the plant is already constructed.

  • 1,050 MW Mountainview Power Plant (SCE) is under construction and will begin commercial operations by the second quarter 2006.

  • 750 MW Pastoria Power Plant (Calpine) will be placed into commercial operation in two phases – 250 MW by December 2004 and 500 MW by second quarter 2005.

  • Other announced power projects:

    • 525 MW Currant Creek Power Plant (PacifiCorp) is under construction.

    • PacifiCorp has announced that Summit Energy will construct the 535 MW Lake Side Power Plant in Utah County.

    • 500 MW Cosumnes (SMUD) will begin commercial operation by fourth quarter 2005.

Speaker Notes: ISO had record send out of over 44,000 MW in July 2004. Power demand is growing with economic recovery.


Expansion Opportunity

  • Route studies and cost estimates have been completed.

  • Kern River can be expanded by 200-500 MMcf/d at market tested rates.

  • An open season this winter, after the CPUC issues a final OIR Decision.

  • Construction is planned for 2007, with a November 2007 proposed in-service date.

  • 66-year proven reserve life in the Rockies, the strongest production growth profile and the most attractive pricing forecast of any supply basin in the lower 48 states.

  • California has 2.5 Bcf/d of expiring interstate capacity, no Rocky Mountain supply.

  • Supply diversity is important to 1) Promote gas-on-gas competition, 2) Provide price stability and 3) Increase infrastructure reliability

  • Utility re-contracting is an opportunity to achieve supply diversity and enhance pipeline infrastructure by providing contract support necessary for infrastructure investment.

  • A looped Kern River system will provide increased security, reliability and flexibility.

  • Kern River is well positioned and willing to invest in infrastructure enhancements.

  • Pipeline looping projects are predictable compared to new Westcoast LNG import terminals which have uncertainties associated with siting, licensing, gas interchangeability, safety and environmental concerns and political considerations.


  • California Regulatory Issues

    • A preliminary decision has been issued in the California OIR encouraging state utilities to de-contract on El Paso and Transwestern and recommending an expedited process to pre-approve new capacity.

    • The designation of primary vs. secondary receipt point rights at SoCalGas city gates should be immediately eliminated.

    • - Discriminates against new supplies, new pipelines and LNG imports.

    • - Restricts gas-on-gas competition and withholds lower cost gas. Favors southwest gas supplies from New Mexico and Texas.

    • - Creates a disincentive to construct new infrastructure, including Rocky Mountain supply that may seek markets to the east.

    • - Physical capacity of 300 MMcf/d exists today at the Kramer Junction which is being withheld from the market due to the primary/secondary receipt point issue.

    • - The CPUC has embraced non-discriminatory access; however, the implementation date remains uncertain.

    • SoCalGas proposes to implement an off-system service which will provide additional flexibility to Kern River shippers to manage load variations.
