Advice No. 5503
(U 904 G)
Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject: Notification of the Creation of New Affiliates
Purpose
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) hereby notifies the California
Public Utilities Commission (Commission) of the creation of new affiliates, as
defined in the Commission's Affiliate Transaction Rules (the Rules).
Background
In accordance with Commission Decision No. (D.) 97-12-088, in OIR 97-04-011/OII
97-04-012, Appendix A, Rule VI.B, as modified by D.98-08-035, SoCalGas is
required to notify the Commission of the creation of any new affiliate addressed by
these Rules. Accordingly, SoCalGas is hereby notifying the Commission of the
formation of affiliates as shown on the enclosed Attachments A.
D.97-12-088, as subsequently modified by various decisions, adopted rules
governing the relationship between California’s natural gas local distribution
companies and electric utilities and certain of their affiliates. For the purposes of a
gas utility, the Rules apply to all utility transactions with affiliates engaging in the
provision of a product that uses gas or the provision of services that relate to the
use of gas. However, regardless of the foregoing, where explicitly provided, the
Rules also apply to a utility’s parent holding company and to all of its affiliates,
whether or not they engage in the provision of a product that uses gas or electricity
or the provision of services that relate to the use of gas or electricity.1
No unusual or unique circumstances exist that would require affiliate transaction
rule implementation measures for these affiliates beyond those already identified
In accordance with D.06-12-029, only certain Rules apply to holding companies that are
not engaged in the provision of gas- or electricity-related products and/or services.
