GTS RATE SCHEDULE

GENERAL TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Cont'd)

 

 

3. MINIMUM FIXED COST CONTRIBUTION (MFCC)

 

(a) Each Shipper under this Rate Schedule shall have an Annual GTS Quantity set forth in its

Service Agreement representing the quantities to be utilized to determine whether Shipper is subject to an

MFCC under this Rate Schedule during the Contract Year (November 1 through October 31). Such Annual GTS

Quantity shall not serve as a limitation on Shipper's throughput. For a Contract Year commencing on or after

November 1, 1993, if a Shipper and its replacement shippers transport less than 65% of that Shipper's Annual

GTS Quantity (the Threshold GTS Quantity), that Shipper shall be assessed an MFCC charge; provided that the

aggregate quantities transported by all Shippers and their replacement shippers under this Rate Schedule

during that Contract Year total less than the aggregate Threshold GTS Quantities of all Shippers.

 

(b) If, after the end of any Contract Year, Transporter determines that aggregate quantities

transported by all Shippers and their replacement shippers under this Rate Schedule during that Contract Year

totaled less than the aggregate Threshold GTS Quantities of all Shippers, Transporter shall assess an MFCC

charge to each Shipper that failed to satisfy its Threshold GTS Quantity. That MFCC charge shall be

calculated by multiplying (i) the fixed costs per Dth imbedded in the currently maximum effective one-part

rate for service under this Rate Schedule first by (ii) the net Deficiency Quantity of all Shippers under this

Rate Schedule, then by (iii) the ratio of Shipper's GTS Transportation Deficiency Quantity (Shipper's

Threshold GTS Quantity minus the actual quantities it and its replacement shippers transported) to the gross

Transportation Deficiency Quantity incurred by deficient Shippers under this Rate Schedule. The MFCC charge

shall be billed to Shipper in 5 equal installments during the next succeeding January - May Billing Months,

with carrying charges at the Commission-approved rate accruing from the close of the preceding Contract Year.

 

4. RECEIPT AND DELIVERY

 

Shippers under this Rate Schedule shall have flexible primary and secondary receipt point authority in

accordance with the provisions of Section 11 (Flexible Primary and Secondary Receipt and Delivery Points) of

the General Terms and Conditions. Flexible primary and secondary delivery point authority under this Rate

Schedule shall only be available, in Transporter's reasonable discretion, to enable Shipper to provide

increased service, up to the maximum quantities available under this Rate Schedule, within Shipper's historic

service area.

 

5. RATE

 

(a) The charges to be paid by Shipper, as set forth in paragraph (b) below, shall be no higher than

the applicable total effective maximum charges and no lower than the applicable total effective minimum

charges set forth in the currently effective Sheet No. 26 of this Tariff, unless otherwise mutually agreed to

by Transporter and Shipper with respect to the charges identified in Section 5(b) below.
