       Pursuant to Utah Admin. Code R746-100-3(H) and Utah Code § 63G-4-201, Questar Gas

Company (the Company or Questar Gas) requests that the time for interested parties to file

surrebuttal testimony or reply comments to the rebuttal testimony or response comments

previously filed by the parties, be extended to October 9, 2008. In support of this request, the

Company states as follows.

1.     On August 26, 2008, the Public Service Commission (Commission) issued the Fourth

Scheduling Order in this docket. Therein, the Commission ordered that Surrebuttal Testimony or

Reply Comments to the Rebuttal Testimony or Response Comments would be due on September

30, 2008.

2.     The Company, the Division of Public Utilities (Division), the Committee of Consumer

Services (Committee) and the Utah Ratepayers Association (URA) have agreed to engage in
discussions designed to seek the resolution of the issues raised in this docket. These parties have

agreed to hold those discussions on September 29, 2008. All formal complainants have been

invited to participate in these discussions.

3.     The Company seeks the extension of time for submitting comments in order that the

parties can focus on resolving the issues, and avoid unnecessary or duplicative work. The

Company has discussed this request with the Division, the Committee and the URA and all

support this Motion.

4.     The Company does not believe an extension of time for interested parties to file

comments will impair this proceeding.

an Order extending the deadline to file comments until October 9, 2008.

       Respectfully submitted this 23rd day of September, 2008.
