18.1 Segmenting Capacity. Subject to this Tariff and to the
availability of capacity, and to the extent operationally
feasible, a firm Shipper may, pursuant to the provisions of this
Section 18, segment its Primary Path for its own use or for the
purpose of capacity release.
18.2 Requests for Segmentation. To segment capacity Shipper must
submit a Service Request specifying the desired Segment Receipt
Point(s) and Segment Delivery Point(s). Segmentation requests
shall be made in writing no less than five (5) Business Days prior
to the Gas Day on which Shipper desires such segmentation to be
effective; provided, however, Pipeline shall use reasonable
efforts to accommodate Shipper requests for segmentation made less
than five (5) Business Days before the desired effective date.
Upon approval, Shipper may implement the segmentation through
nomination or through the capacity release process, subject to
this Tariff and to the availability of capacity.
18.3 Prerequisites for Segmentation. To maintain the integrity and
reliability of Pipeline's operationally complex, reticulated
system, the following prerequisites for segmentation have been
established to ensure that segmentation is supported to the
greatest extent possible without detriment to, or degradation of,
any Shipper's firm service.
(a) The Segment Receipt Point(s) and Segment Delivery Point(s)
must be located at or between Shipper’s Primary Receipt
Point(s) and Primary Delivery Point(s).
(b) Segmentation is subject to the availability of capacity and
existing contractual obligations.
(c) Segmentation may not exceed the Line Path Quantity on any
Primary Path Segment.
(d) Segmentation is permitted in the direction of flow opposite
to the Primary Path; however, the quantities subject to a
request for flow opposite to the Primary Path shall be added
to any other segmentation activity on the same Primary Path
Segment when considering the Line Path Quantity limitation.
