2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE (continued)

 

Further, Transporter's obligation under this Rate Schedule to

provide capacity or service at points or on its system up to the

various Contract Limitations (e.g., Receipt Entitlement, MRO, MDO,

Secondary MDQ) shall not be applicable for each Day of the Reverse

Storage Contract Year but rather shall be subject to the aggregate

quantity and time period limitations established by the MDWQ,

MSWQ, the MDIQ and/or the RSS Balance.

 

2.6 The term of each Service Agreement under this Rate Schedule shall

commence at the beginning of a Reverse Storage Contract Year,

except as provided in Section 5.3 of this Rate Schedule, and shall

extend through one or more Reverse Storage Contract Years.

 

2.7 Transporter is not providing a Gas supply service under this Rate

Schedule. This service will be provided through the management by

Transporter of its storage operations (including in-field

transfers), system assets and its cushion and system management

Gas. Transporter shall have the right during the Reverse

Withdrawal Period to credit scheduled injections into storage by

Shippers under Rate Schedule FSS by means of in-field transfers

from Transporter's cushion Gas to the applicable Working Gas

Quantity accounts of the Rate Schedule FSS Shippers to avoid the

need to physically withdraw quantities for Rate Schedule RSS

deliveries. Similarly, during the Reverse Injection Period,

Transporter shall, to the maximum extent possible, use quantities

received and scheduled for RSS injections to effect deliveries by

displacement of Gas scheduled for withdrawal under Rate Schedule

FSS; in such event, Transporter shall credit the Rate Schedule RSS

Shippers with injections if, and to the extent that, physical

withdrawals from storage for other services were avoided by the

displacement transactions.
