to receive gas from or on behalf of Shipper and deliver gas to or for Shipper, (ii) Transporter has awarded

capacity to Shipper under the provisions of Section 4 (Auctions of Available Firm Service) of the General

Terms and Conditions, through construction of facilities, or pursuant to Transporter's Order No. 636

restructuring proceeding in FERC Docket No. RS92-5-000, (iii) Shipper has executed an FTS Service Agreement

2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE

 

(a) Service provided under this Rate Schedule shall be performed under Subpart B or G of Part 284

of the Commission's Regulations. Subject to the limitations set forth below, Transporter under this Rate

Schedule shall receive scheduled quantities from or on behalf of Shipper and shall deliver thermally

equivalent scheduled quantities, less Retainage, to or for Shipper. Such service shall be provided on a firm

basis and shall apply to all gas transported by Transporter for Shipper under this Rate Schedule, up to the

Transportation Demand set forth in Shipper's FTS Service Agreement.

 

(b) Service provided under this Rate Schedule (i) shall have the priority specified in Section 7

(Capacity Allocation) of the General Terms and Conditions, (ii) shall be subject to interruption to the extent

provided in this Rate Schedule or in Section 16 (Interruptions of Service) of the General Terms and

Conditions, and (iii) shall be subject to operational flow orders to the extent provided in this Rate Schedule

or in Section 17 (Operational Flow Orders) of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(c) Transporter shall not be obligated on any Day to accept gas in excess of the lesser of

(i) Shipper's Transportation Demand plus Retainage, or (ii) Shipper's Scheduled Daily Receipt Quantity.

Transporter also shall not be obligated on any Day to deliver more gas to Shipper than the lesser of

(i) Shipper's Transportation Demand, (ii) Shipper's Scheduled Daily Delivery Quantity, or (iii) the quantity

of gas Transporter receives for Shipper less Retainage. For the purpose of balancing any imbalances in

Shipper's account, Shipper may deliver or take quantities in excess of the above limitations in accordance

with the provisions of Section 6 (Nominating, Scheduling, and Monitoring) and Section 7 (Capacity Allocation)

of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(d) Service rights under an FTS Service Agreement may be released and assigned in accordance with

Section 14 (Release and Assignment of Service Rights) of the General Terms and Conditions. Service to a

replacement shipper under any such release and assignment shall be subject to the provisions set forth in this

Rate Schedule and in the applicable General Terms and Conditions.

 

(e) Transporter and Shipper may mutually agree on a not unduly discriminatory basis to (i)

different termination dates for specified volumes of Transportation Demand within the same Service Agreement

and/or (ii) combine Service Agreements under this Rate Schedule into a single Service Agreement under this

Rate Schedule with different termination dates for specified volumes of Transportation Demand. Transporter

and Shipper may mutually agree to combine Service Agreements only to the extent that the individual Service

Agreement's rates, terms, and conditions can be distinctly maintained and will not be altered by the

combination. For each Service Agreement(s) executed in accordance with this Section 2(e), each of the varying

termination dates and associated volumes of Transportation Demand will be set forth on a separate Appendix A

to the Service Agreement applicable to service pursuant to this Rate Schedule. Each component with a

different termination date for a specified volume of Transportation Demand within the same Service Agreement

and reflected in a separate Appendix A will be regarded as a single Service Agreement for purposes of

Shipper's exercise of any right of first refusal under the provisions of Section 4 of the General Terms and

Conditions of Transporter's Tariff. In the event of a constraint or other occurrence that precludes combined

nominations or allocations, Transporter may advise Shippers under such combined Service Agreements that

capacity must be nominated separately, and is subject to separate allocation, pursuant to the terms of each

separate Appendix A of the Service Agreement. Each Appendix A of the combined Service Agreements will be

identified by its original contract number or such other identification convention determined to be applicable

by Transporter.
