FSS RATE SCHEDULE

FIRM STORAGE SERVICE (Cont'd)

 

(d) Subject to the limitations and requirements set forth in this Rate Schedule or in Shipper's FSS

Service Agreement, Transporter shall (i) inject quantities received by Transporter from or on behalf of

Shipper and designated by Shipper for delivery to "FSS Storage", up to the SCQ set forth in Shipper's FSS

Service Agreement plus sufficient quantities for Storage Gas Loss Retainage, (ii) deliver to Shipper thermally

equivalent quantities of gas, less Storage Gas Loss Retainage, up to the SCQ set forth in Shipper's FSS

Service Agreement, and (iii) inject or withdraw quantities to correct imbalances, as provided for in paragraph

(c) immediately above. Transporter shall not be obligated under this Rate Schedule on any Day to deliver to

Shipper gas in excess of the quantities then held in storage for Shipper.

 

(e) Daily quantities nominated by Shipper for withdrawal from FSS storage under any of Shipper's

transportation Service Agreements shall be deemed to be withdrawals from Shipper's FSS account.

 

(f) Service rights under an FSS 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 General Terms and Conditions. If a Shipper releases only a portion of its service

rights under an FSS Service Agreement, such release shall not change the existing ratio of the SCQ and the

MDSQ for Shipper's remaining unreleased service.

 

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

different termination dates for specified volumes of Storage Contract Quantity and Maximum Daily Storage

Quantity 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 Storage Contract Quantity and Maximum Daily Storage Quantity. 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(g), each of the varying termination dates and

associated volumes of Storage Contract Quantity and Maximum Daily Storage Quantity 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 Storage Contract Quantity and Maximum

Daily Storage Quantity 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.

 

3. INJECTIONS INTO STORAGE

 

(a) Transporter shall not be obligated on any Day to inject gas into storage for Shipper in excess

of Shipper's Maximum Daily Injection Quantities (MDIQ), as described in this Section. A request by Shipper to

make injections in excess of its MDIQ shall be submitted to Transporter electronically through Transporter's

EBB, and shall be received by Transporter at least 24 hours in advance of the requested injections. In the

event that Shipper makes such a request, Transporter will grant the request to the extent that additional

injection flexibility exists during the time period of the request in accordance with Section 7 (Capacity

Allocation) of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(b) Injections under this Rate Schedule shall have the priority described in Section 7 (Capacity

Allocation) of the General Terms and Conditions and 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. Except

for reasons of force majeure, Shipper shall notify Transporter electronically through Transporter's EBB at

least 24 hours in advance of any change in the daily quantities of gas Shipper desires to deliver or cause to

be delivered to Transporter for storage under this Rate Schedule. If a force majeure event causes a material

change in the quantities of gas that will be delivered to Transporter for storage on Shipper's behalf under

this Rate Schedule, Shipper shall notify or cause Transporter to be notified as soon as possible after that

force majeure event.
