declaratory ruling pipeline classification
Declaratory Ruling -Pipeline Classification
  • It is possible to have a transmission line under 20 % SMYS.
  • A distribution center begins at the location of title transfer.
  • A pipeline feeding a large volume customer is no longer distribution if it is < 20 % SMYS but must be downstream of a distribution center to be distribution.
  • This could affect operators that may in the future have a large volume customer tapped into an interstate transmission line at a point other than a distribution center with a line operating at < 20 % SMYS.  In such a case, this may now possibly be transmission rather than distribution.
