Also, she noted as a result of draft map #5 that 3,276 people would be disenfranchised from 2012 to 2014 because they would be reassigned a different district, resulting in a wait until that district’s turn to elect

MEMORANDUM TO:

Cities Served by TGS RGV

FROM:

Geoffrey M. Gay

DATE:

June 27, 2012

RE:

TGS Rate Filings of May 1, 2012 and June 26, 2012

Yesterday, Texas Gas Service (“TGS” or “Company”) filed a Statement of Intent (“SOI”) to raise its base natural gas rates with all Valley Cities Served by TGS (“Cities”). Under Texas law, a SOI cannot be implemented until 35 days from the date of the filing. August 1, 2012 (35 days from June 26th) is the proposed effective date. It is not coincidental that August 1st is also the intended effective date of the Cost of Service Adjustment (“COSA”) rates proposed by TGS in the filing made with the Cities on May 1, 2012. Both the COSA and the SOI are based on the same test year data. By technically filing the COSA, TGS complied with the settlement terms of the 2009 rate case which led to the creation of the COSA process. But dissatisfied with the fact that the “cap” provisions of the COSA were not permitting the Company sufficient opportunity to earn an acceptable profit, the Company exercised its right to file a traditional rate case request for recovery of the dollars excluded under the COSA. Cities’ Response Texas law allows a city exercising original rate jurisdiction to suspend the effective date of SOI proposed rates for 90 days to study the reasonableness of the request. If a city does not take action within the first 35 days of a SOI filing to suspend the effective date, deny the request or set new rates, the Company’s proposed rates become effective. While an ordinance adopting settled rates proposed by TGS is attached to this memorandum, this is the first time in 24 years of advising cities on rate matters that I am not urging cities to take action within the initial 35 days following a SOI filing. Because the actual SOI filing reflects a settlement agreement that I am recommending, it is reasonable to allow the SOI rates to go into effect on the effective date by operation of law. Cities may do nothing and allow the SOI that incorporates the COSA to go into effect on August 1, 2012. However, if questioned by citizens curious about a City’s lack of action, an explanation rests in the fact that the SOI filing reflects a settlement reached with Cities that disallows a third of what the Company could have requested.


Weslaco City Commission Regular Meeting

Page 157 July 17, 2012

By The Numbers The TGS test year ending December 31, 2011 used in the COSA filing reflects an increased cost of service of $3,444,694 of which $1,883,923 is allowable under the COSA cap. Cities’ consultant, Mr. Nalepa, reviewed and tested the $3,444,694 cost of service and made six adjustments for a total revenue requirement reduction of $128,634. Since Cities’ revenue requirement adjustments would have to exceed the capped value of $1,883,923, the Company is entitled to recover its requested COSA increase. However, TGS contends that significant capital investments with a COSA limitation on investments under the cap, precludes the Company from earning a reasonable return. Therefore, the Company made clear in settlement discussions on the COSA that it intended to file a SOI to not only seek the $1,560,771 disallowed under the COSA, but also to seek a new COSA tariff that removes the cap on investment. The Company expressed a desire to implement SOI rates simultaneously with the COSA rates on August 1, 2012. Since Cities’ consultant was already familiar with the data TGS intended to use in support of the SOI, Cities were able to extract concessions in exchange for expedited consideration of the SOI. We reached agreement in settling the SOI, and that agreement is reflected in the SOI filing. Settlement Agreement Rather than filing yesterday to recover the entire $1,560,771 disallowed under the COSA, TGS filed the SOI for $1 million and agreed to a disallowance of $560,771. The Company in settlement with Cities, agreed to accept all six of Mr. Nalepa’s original adjustments totaling $128,634, plus a reduction to its allowed rate of return on equity equivalent to $291,366, plus additional undefined adjustments equivalent to $140,771. The settlement reflected in the SOI also includes a new COSA tariff that: (1) removes the cap on invested capital for pipeline integrity and leak testing; (2) retains the cap on operations and maintenance expenses; (3) lowers the rate of return on equity from 10.25% to 9.7%; (4) sets a limit on equity as a percentage of capital structure at 55%; and (5) sets cash working capital at zero. Cost Benefit of Settlement vs. Litigation The SOI settlement in 2009 established a three-year experiment with the COSA. The May 1, 2012 COSA filing was the third and final filing pursuant to the 2009 agreement. While it can be argued that the June 26, 2012 filing reflects nothing more than the Company being dissatisfied with the result of the COSA deal they struck, unfortunately there is nothing in contract or regulatory law that precludes the Company from filing a traditional rate case, and they have a right to request a new COSA tariff at the end of the third year of the COSA experiment. The incremental value of the SOI filing over the COSA filing is $1 million. While Cities have the right to suspend the effective date and ultimately deny the request, such action would likely result in an appeal to the Railroad Commission (“RRC”). In an appeal, TGS could ask for the entire $1,560,771, and there is at least a 50% probability that the Company would achieve a result more favorable than what is reflected in the settlement with Cities. Incremental rate case expenses associated with a rate case appealed to the RRC would likely exceed $1 million. Cities’ rate case expenses would be reimbursed, but the rate case expenses of both the Cities and the Company would be surcharged to TGS customers. Surcharging the 69,000 TGS RGV customers


Weslaco City Commission Regular Meeting

Page 158 July 17, 2012

over 12 months would lead to a surcharge of about $1.20 per month. The combined rate impact of the COSA and SOI is about $1.40 per month for a residential customer. Cities would have to defeat virtually every claim in the SOI and achieve a rate reduction to justify the rate case expense burden that would be associated with litigation. Meetings to Explain the SOI Filing and Settlement with Cities Last Friday, the Council of Governments hosted meetings in Harlingen and Pharr to allow TGS to explain their filings and to allow me to explain the proposed settlement and answer questions. Attending the meetings were representatives from Harlingen, La Feria, Los Fresnos, Mercedes, Palm Valley, Primera, Raymondville, Rio Hondo, San Benito, Brownsville, Mission, La Villa, Alton, and Edinburg. There was general agreement among the representatives with the settlement reflected in the SOI and a willingness to let the new rates go into effect by operation of law on August 1, 2012. Conclusion I recommend acceptance of the SOI filing with its settlement, incorporation of COSA results and revised COSA tariff. I recommend that Cities either allow the SOI proposed rate tariffs to become effective on August 1, 2012 by operation of law or by passage of the attached ordinance.
