GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
31. Negotiated Rates (cont'd)
31.5 Filing Requirements: No later than the business day on which
Southern Star commences service at a negotiated rate (or if the
day on which Southern Star commences such service is not a
business day, then the next business day after Southern Star
commences such service), Southern Star will file with the
Commission either its negotiated rate agreement or a numbered
tariff sheet stating the name of the Customer, the actual
negotiated rate or the formula used to calculate the rate, the
applicable receipt and delivery points, the quantity of gas to be
transported, the applicable Rate Schedule for the service and an
affirmation that the negotiated rate agreement does not deviate
in any material aspect from the applicable form of service
agreement in Southern Star's tariff.
31.6 Accounting For Costs and Revenues: The allocation of costs
to, and the recording of revenues from, service at negotiated
rate(s) will follow Southern Star's normal practices
associated with all of its services under this Tariff.
Southern Star will maintain separate records of negotiated
rate transactions for each billing period. These records
shall include the volumes transported, the billing
determinants, the rates charged and the revenue received
associated with such transactions and surcharges. Southern
Star will separately identify such transactions in Statements
G, I and J (or their equivalents) filed in any general rate
31.7 Rate Treatment: Southern Star shall have the right to seek in
future general rate proceedings discount-type adjustments in the
design of its rates related to negotiated rate agreements that
were converted from pre-existing discount agreements to
negotiated rate agreements, provided that the type of pre-
existing service is not altered as a result of the conversion to
a negotiated rate. In these situations, Southern Star may seek a
discount-type adjustment based upon the greater of the negotiated
rate revenues received or the discounted rate revenues which
otherwise would have been received.
31.8 Limitations: This Section 31 does not authorize Southern Star to
negotiate terms and conditions of service.
31.9 Right of First Refusal: For purposes of exercising rights to
continue service pursuant to Section 6 of these General Terms and
Conditions, the highest rate that the existing capacity holder
must match if it desires to retain all or a portion of its
capacity, is the applicable maximum tariff rate, including
surcharges, for such service.
