GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

39. THIRD PARTY IMBALANCE MANAGEMENT

 

39.3 Transporter and Third Party Provider must enter an Agreement which

defines how such provider will accommodate Shipper's Imbalances,

scheduling variances, or Overruns, how the provider is to make the

corresponding operational changes, the limitations on the level of

Imbalances, scheduling variances and Overruns to be accommodated

and the consequences if such levels are exceeded or operational

changes are not made. The Agreement must provide Transporter with

the ability to call on the third-party provider on a basis

consistent with service offered by the third-party provider to the

Shipper. The Agreement must also specify a predetermined

allocation methodology and shall specify the extent to which and

the conditions under which the Shipper shall be kept whole because

the third-party provider is agreeing to take the Imbalance,

scheduling variance or Overrun. If there is an OBA at the Point

at which the Imbalance management service is to be provided, the

Agreement must also provide that Transporter shall not be

responsible for Balancing within the agreed limits of the

management service.

 

39.4 Transporter and Shipper must enter an agreement which designates

the Service Agreements for which the third-party provider will

take the Imbalance, scheduling variance, or Overrun and

designating the Point(s) at which the third-party provider will

provide the Imbalance management service. The Point(s) designated

must have electronic real-time metering or must be otherwise

agreeable to Transporter.

 

39.5 The conditions set forth in this Section 39 are minimum conditions

that all third-party providers and Shippers utilizing such

services must satisfy. When a specific third-party management

service is proposed, Transporter may require the third-party

provider and Shipper to satisfy additional conditions.

Transporter shall not be obligated to enter into any agreement to

accept Third-Party Imbalance Management Services which would, in

Transporter's reasonable judgment, impair its ability to meet its

existing System requirements or which would not relieve

Transporter of the need to manage (to the extent of the third-

party services) the Shipper's Imbalances, scheduling variances and

Overruns.
