Intermountain Gas Co. was prepared to share the proceeds of its sale of liquid natural gas to non-utility customers on a 50-50 basis since it has a surplus beyond what it needs to serve its Idaho customers.
In negotiations with the Idaho Public Utilities Commission the investor-owned monopoly that serves 315,000 customers in southern Idaho agreed to hand over 70 percent of the revenues from these sales after it sold $1.5 million worth of its surplus.
Intermountain will use all stored liquid natural gas to meet its utility customer demand first. It also will charge non-utility customers 2.5 cents for each gallon sold to meet any operations and maintenance costs resulting from these sales.
Intermountain will pass this on to its customers and tack another 2.5 cents per gallon to meet any capital expenditures or increased maintenance costs to its Nampa liquid natural gas plant, the the Commission order.
