Atmos Pipeline Texas (“APT”) has filed a base rate case with the Texas Railroad Commission in which the utility seeks to increase rates annually by $119.4 million on a systemwide basis. The proposed change would increase APT’s total aggregate revenues by more than 2.5 percent, according to the company’s May 19 filing with the agency.
Under the proposal, APT’s current capacity charge of $17.97 would increase to $21.25 for Atmos Mid-Tex City Gate Service. (The capacity charge is the rate per MMBtu of Maximum Daily Quantity (“MDQ”), where MDQ is defined as the maximum daily quantity of gas over the pipeline system.) The change would take effect on June 23.
The company’s proposed change is based on a 12-month test year that ended Dec. 31, 2022.
In addition to establishing new rates, APT in its filing seeks a determination from the Railroad Commission that investments the company made under its Gas Reliability Infrastructure Program (“GRIP”) filings from October 1, 2016, through Dec. 31, 2022, were prudently incurred.
More information can be found under Case No. 00013758, on the website of the Texas Railroad Commission.
