FSS RATE SCHEDULE

FIRM STORAGE SERVICE

 

1. AVAILABILITY

 

Service under this Rate Schedule is available from Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC (Transporter) to any

Shipper, provided that (i) Transporter has sufficient facilities and storage capacity available to inject,

store, and withdraw gas 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 FSS Service Agreement with Transporter, and (iv) Shipper complies with the

provisions of this Rate Schedule and with all other applicable provisions of this Tariff.

 

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 shall inject and

store quantities and withdraw thermally equivalent quantities, less storage gas loss, for Shipper. Such

service shall be provided on a firm basis and shall apply to all gas delivered to Transporter for Shipper and

stored under this Rate Schedule, up to the Storage Contract Quantity (SCQ) set forth in Shipper's FSS Service

Agreement. Shipper's Maximum Daily Storage Quantity (MDSQ) under this FSS Rate Schedule shall be that

specified in Shipper's FSS 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 issued by Transporter to protect the

integrity, including the performance capability, of its storage facilities, or otherwise to the extent

provided in this Rate Schedule or in Section 17 (Operational Flow orders) of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(c) Shipper's FSS inventory under this Rate Schedule shall be increased or decreased by any actual

imbalances (actual receipts compared to actual deliveries) created under any other Service Agreement(s)

Shipper has with Transporter, except for the TPS Rate Schedule, and the imbalance shall be removed from such

other Service Agreement(s); provided, however, a Rate Schedule TPS Shipper's FSS inventory may also be

adjusted in accordance with the provisions of the TPS Rate Schedule. Such increase or decrease shall be

deemed to be a storage injection or withdrawal under Shipper's FSS Service Agreement. Such a transfer to or

from FSS inventory shall not relieve Shipper from its responsibility to pay all applicable transportation

charges for the transportation into or out of storage. The appropriate maximum commodity charges and

surcharges (and any overrun charges) will be assessed for the transportation into or out of storage under the

appropriate transportation Service Agreement held by Shipper in the following order of priority, if Shipper

holds more than one firm transportation agreement, up to the Transportation Demand under each: (i) SST

Service Agreement; (ii) NTS Service Agreement; (iii) NTS-S Service Agreement; or (iv) FTS Service Agreement;

provided, that Shipper may notify Transporter in writing of a preferred different order of priority for the

specified Rate Schedules. Such notice must be received by Transporter at least 30 days prior to the beginning

of the Month for which it is to be initially effective. To the extent that the resulting debit or credit to

Shipper's FSS inventory (i) corrects a transportation imbalance not associated with city gate deliveries, and

(ii) causes Shipper to exceed its SCQ, Transporter shall waive that portion of any penalty resulting from such

debit or credit. Any such action shall not increase Transporter's firm service obligations.
