GTS RATE SCHEDULE

GENERAL TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Cont'd)

 

If Shipper's Transportation Demand is less than 10,000 Dth per day, Shipper may request from

Transporter an increase up to a Transportation Demand of 10,000 Dth per day, provided that (i) Shipper's

request complies with the provisions of Section 3 (Requests for Service) of the General Terms and Conditions,

(ii) such requested increase is to provide service to Shipper's historic service area, and (iii) such

requested increase would not result in Shipper's total Transportation Demand under its GTS Service Agreement

with Transporter exceeding 10,000 Dth per day. Transporter may approve such a request if the capacity

necessary to satisfy the request is available on its system or Transporter agrees to construct facilities to

provide such capacity.

 

(d) Transporter shall store gas for Shipper in order to provide such gas to Shipper on the "no-

notice" basis set forth herein up to the SCQ set forth in Shipper's GTS Service Agreement. Variances between

actual deliveries of gas to or for Shipper and actual receipts of gas to or for Shipper on the same Day, less

Retainage, shall be debited or credited to Shipper's storage account under this Rate Schedule, up to its SCQ.

Shipper may in this manner withdraw from quantities actually in storage a cumulative quantity up to its SCQ,

and a quantity in excess of its SCQ, up to twice its Transportation Demand; provided that, no later than 30

days after Transporter gives notice to Shipper, Shipper shall tender to Transporter quantities of gas in

excess of its current deliveries sufficient to replenish all such quantities delivered from storage in excess

of SCQ. If Shipper fails to replenish any such amounts in excess of SCQ withdrawn from storage, Shipper shall

be subject to operational flow orders or interruption orders, and associated penalties, as set forth in

Sections 2 and 6 of this Rate Schedule.

 

(e) Service provided under this Rate Schedule, including all injections and withdrawals from

storage 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 and in Section 17 (Operational

Flow Orders) of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(f) Shipper shall remain responsible for all property or other taxes associated with the quantities

held for Shipper in storage under this Rate Schedule. Transporter periodically shall report to Shipper the

quantities in storage, allocated by State, to enable Shipper to calculate and pay all taxes associated with

its storage quantities. Storage gas inventory owned by GTS shippers (a) in West Virginia shall be deemed to

be in West Virginia storage fields, (b) in Ohio shall be deemed to be in Ohio storage fields, and (c) in

Pennsylvania and Kentucky shall be deemed to be in Pennsylvania storage fields. With regard to Shippers under

this Rate Schedule, all of Transporter's storage fields shall be treated conjunctively within each such State.

Each Shipper's storage gas shall be deemed to be proportionally allocated to all of Transporter's storage

fields in the applicable States based on total working gas in storage in those States.

 

(g) A GTS Service Agreement may be released and assigned in accordance with Section 14 (Release and

Assignment of Service Rights) of the General Terms and Conditions, and subject to the provisions set forth in

this Rate Schedule. Any such assignments shall not relieve a releasing Shipper from its obligation to

replenish any deficiency in its SCQ on a timely basis, as required by Section 2(d) of this Rate Schedule.
