Interruptible Transportation Service (continued)

 

The types of allocation methodologies is a list from which two

parties may agree. If the two parties can not agree upon an

allocation methodology, pro rata based upon confirmed nominations

should be used as the default method. The party responsible for

custody transfer (the party performing the measurement function)

should provide the allocation. The PDA methods shall include

ranked, pro rata, percentage, swing, and operator provided value,

as such terms are used in the NAESB Standards. The same standard

allocation methodologies should be available for use at all points

except those covered by an OBA. A new allocation detail may be

needed when a nomination changes. Transporter shall be entitled

to rely exclusively on an effective PDA in allocating as received

at a point taken and allocations made in reliance upon such PDA.

No retroactive changes to a PDA may be made unless Transporter

harmless against actions taken and allocations made in reliance

upon such PDA. No retroactive changes to a PDA may be made unless

Transporter and all affected parties agree in writing. The

allocating party should send back "confirmation" of receipt of the

pre-determined allocation within 15 minutes.

 

7.2 THERMAL BALANCING AND REDELIVERY QUANTITY

 

Transporter shall undertake to redeliver to Shipper at its Point of

Delivery a quantity of gas containing the gross heating value of gas

received from Shipper by Transporter at the Point of Receipt, less any

attributable line losses or unaccounted-for gas.

 

The specific quantity in MMBtu gas to be redelivered by Transporter to

Shipper or for Shipper's account (herein referred to as Shipper's

"Redelivery Quantity") shall be determined each month as the product of

(a), and (b) below:

 

(a) The volume of gas in MMBtu received by Transporter from Shipper at

the Point of Receipt for transportation during the month.

 

(b) A fraction, the numerator of which is the measured volume in MMBtu of

all gas delivered by Transporter from its pipeline during the month,

and the denominator of which is the measured volume in MMBtu of all

gas received by Transporter during the month.

 

Scheduling on a daily basis shall reflect the general procedures

identified above. The timing for reporting daily operational allocations

after the gas has flowed is within one business day after the end of the

gas day. If the best available data for reporting daily operational

allocations is the scheduled quantity, that quantity should be used for

the daily operational allocation. Precise balancing shall be on a

monthly basis. Any imbalances during a particular month shall be kept to

the minimum permitted by operating conditions and balanced out as soon as

practicable.
