Sec. 15503. Authority and criteria: rates, classifications, rules,

and practices prescribed by Board

-STATUTE-

(a) In General. - When the Board, after a full hearing, decides

that a rate charged or collected by a pipeline carrier for

transportation subject to this part, or that a classification,

rule, or practice of that carrier, does or will violate this part,

the Board may prescribe the rate, classification, rule, or practice

to be followed. In prescribing the rate, classification, rule, or

practice, the Board may utilize rate reasonableness procedures that

provide an effective simulation of a market-based price for a stand

alone pipeline. The Board may order the carrier to stop the

violation. When a rate, classification, rule, or practice is

prescribed under this subsection, the affected carrier may not

publish, charge, or collect a different rate and shall adopt the

classification and observe the rule or practice prescribed by the

Board.

(b) Factors To Consider. - When prescribing a rate,

classification, rule, or practice for transportation or service by

a pipeline carrier, the Board shall consider, among other factors -

(1) the effect of the prescribed rate, classification, rule, or

practice on the movement of traffic by that carrier;

(2) the need for revenues that are sufficient, under honest,

economical, and efficient management, to let the carrier provide

that transportation or service; and

(3) the availability of other economic transportation

alternatives.

(c) Proceeding. - The Board may begin a proceeding under this

section on complaint. A complaint under this section must contain a

full statement of the facts and the reasons for the complaint and

must be made under oath.
