Advice No. 5498
(U 904 G)
Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject: Schedule No. G-CPS July 2019 Cash-Out Rates
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) hereby submits revisions to its Schedule
No. G-CPS, California Producer Service (G-CPS), applicable throughout its service
territory, as shown on Attachment A.
Purpose
This routine submittal updates the Imbalance Cash-out Rates in G-CPS with rates for
July 2019 as authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission’s (Commission)
approval, on February 11, 2014, of SoCalGas' Advice No. (AL) 4177-A which was
submitted in compliance with Resolution (Res.) G-3489 and is consistent with Decision
(D.) 07-08-029 and D.10-09-001.
Background
SoCalGas submitted AL 4177-A to implement the modifications ordered in Res. G-3489,
D.07-08-029, and D.10-09-001. Consistent with these documents, SoCalGas included
its new tariff, G-CPS, to cover SoCalGas’ costs associated with providing services to
California Producers. G-CPS also provides the rate calculation methodology for the
monthly California Producer Imbalance Cash-out rates using gas price indices published
by the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE). On February 11, 2014, the Commission
approved G-CPS as part of AL 4177-A, along with other tariffs and agreement forms.
The methodology that SoCalGas uses to determine the Imbalance Cash-out Rates is
described in G-CPS, Special Condition 5.
On August 28, 2017, SoCalGas submitted AL 5179 which included modifications to the
G-CPS cash-out rate calculations by replacing: 1) ICE’s daily High, Low, and Average
