FBS RATE SCHEDULE

FIRM BALANCING SERVICE (Cont'd)

 

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

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

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

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

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

FBS Service Agreement to "FBS Storage". 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.

 

(d) Service rights under an FBS 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, the FBS Service Agreement, and the General Terms and Conditions. If a Shipper releases only a

portion of its service rights under an FBS Service Agreement, such release shall not change the existing ratio

of the SCQ and the MDIQ and/or MDWQ for Shipper's remaining unreleased service.

 

(e) Service under this Rate Schedule shall be provided only for a term of less than one year.

 

(f) In order to provide service under Rate Schedule FBS, Transporter may use capacity under

existing Rate Schedule FSS that is unsubscribed. When utilizing unsubscribed FSS capacity, Transporter shall

not exceed the aggregate injection and withdrawal rights associated with the underlying expired service

agreement(s).

 

(g) The source of capacity for this service shall be expiring service agreements under Rate

Schedules FSS and/or GTS, as well as newly constructed or acquired storage capacity that is otherwise

unsubscribed.

 

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 the FBS Service Agreement. 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

Shipper's FBS Service Agreement and this Rate Schedule, Shipper shall notify or cause Transporter to be

notified as soon as possible after that force majeure event.
