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 on an

interruptible basis: (i) inject into storage the excess of Shipper's actual daily receipt quantity (less

Retainage assessed under the applicable Transportation Service Agreement(s)) over Shipper's actual daily

delivery quantity under Shipper's designated Transportation Service Agreements with Transporter, and (ii)

withdraw from storage the excess of Shipper's actual daily delivery quantity over actual daily receipt

quantity (less Retainage assessed under the applicable Transportation Service Agreement(s)) under Shipper's

designated Transportation Service Agreements with Transporter; provided that the net of such injections or

withdrawals shall not on any Day exceed the Maximum Balancing Quantity (MBQ) set forth in Shipper's SIT

Service Agreement, as described more fully at Section 3 of this Rate Schedule.

excess receipts and deliveries under multiple Transportation Service Agreements, provided that Shipper

designates in advance each Service Agreement subject to SIT balancing.

 

(c) Subject to the limitations set forth in this Rate Schedule, Shipper, in any Month for which it

has requested SIT service, shall not be permitted to increase its quantities flowing under any Service

specified in Section 7 (Capacity Allocation) of the General Terms and Conditions, (ii) shall be subject to
