available to receive gas from or on behalf of Shipper and deliver gas to or for Shipper, (ii) Transporter has

2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE

 

(a) Service provided under this Rate Schedule shall be performed under Subpart G of Part 284 of

the Commission's Regulations. Subject to the limitations set forth below, Transporter shall (i) receive

scheduled quantities from or on behalf of Shipper and shall deliver thermally equivalent scheduled quantities,

less Retainage, to or for Shipper, and (ii) shall provide a gas supply quantity pursuant to which Shipper may,

subject to the limitations and conditions set forth below, nominate Scheduled Daily Delivery Quantities in

excess of its Scheduled Daily Receipt Quantities.

 

(b) Service shall be provided on a firm basis and shall apply to all gas transported by

Transporter for Shipper under this Rate Schedule up to the Maximum Hourly Quantity (MHQ) and up to the

Maximum Daily Quantity (MDQ) set forth in Shipper's NTS-S Service Agreement. The MHQ shall be no less than

4.17 percent and no greater than 100 percent of the MDQ set forth in the Shipper's NTS-S Service Agreement.

 

(c) Transporter shall not be obligated on any Day to accept gas in excess of the lesser of (i)

Shipper's Transportation Demand plus Retainage, or (ii) Shipper's Scheduled Daily Receipt Quantity.

Transporter also shall not be obligated on any Day to deliver more gas to Shipper than the limitations

prescribed by this Section 2. Transporter shall not be obligated on any hour to accept gas in excess of

Shipper's Hourly Transportation Demand plus Retainage. Transporter also shall not be obligated during any

hour to deliver more gas to Shipper than the limitations prescribed by this Section 2. For the purpose of

balancing any imbalances in Shipper's account, Shipper may deliver or take quantities in excess of the above

limitations in accordance with the provisions of Section 6 (Nominating, Scheduling, and Monitoring) and

Section 7 (Capacity Allocation) of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(d) Shipper shall have the ability in its valid request for service to request firm service for

multiple sequential summer seasons.

 

(e) Transporter and Shipper may mutually agree on a not unduly discriminatory basis to differing

levels of MHQ and Transportation Demand for specified periods within the same Service Agreement. For each

Service Agreement(s) executed in accordance with this Section 2(e), each of the varying volumes of MHQ and

Transportation Demand will be specified in Appendix A to the Service Agreement.

 

(f) Service provided under this Rate Schedule shall (i) have the priority specified in Section 7

(Capacity Allocation) of the General Terms and Conditions, (ii) 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) be subject to operational flow orders to the extent provided in this Rate Schedule or in

Section 17 (Operational Flow Orders) of the General Terms and Conditions.

 

(g) As of the date Shipper begins receiving service under this Rate Schedule, Shipper shall have a

beginning Gas Supply Quantity (GSQ) balance of zero. Shipper may draw upon its GSQ up to a negative balance

established at twice the Transportation Demand specified in Shipper's NTS-S Service Agreement, as set forth

below. As Shipper takes gas under its GSQ (GSQ Draws), Shipper's remaining available GSQ quantities shall be

reflected in a cumulative daily balance (GSQ Balance) arrived at by (i) subtracting from Shipper's current GSQ

Balance Shipper's GSQ Draws on that Day, and (ii) adding to the resulting figure any quantities (less

Retainage) received by Transporter on that Day for replenishment of Shipper's earlier GSQ Draws.
