NTS-S RATE SCHEDULE

SUMMER HOURLY NO-NOTICE TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Cont'd)

 

(h) Unless otherwise designated by Shipper when scheduling service under this Rate Schedule in

conjunction with service under Rate Schedules FSS or SIT, on any Day that Shipper has a GSQ Balance equal to

or less than zero, but greater than a negative balance not exceeding twice the Shipper's Transportation

Demand, Shipper shall be deemed to have made a GSQ Draw to the extent that its actual deliveries under this

Rate Schedule, as determined in accordance with Section 8 (Meter Allocations) of the General Terms and

Conditions, exceed Shipper's Scheduled Daily Receipt Quantity, less Retainage. Shipper's GSQ Draws may not (i)

on any Day exceed Shipper's then current GSQ Balance, or Shipper's Transportation Demand, or (ii) in the

aggregate exceed Shipper's GSQ. If Shipper's GSQ Balance exceeds a negative number that is two times the

Transportation Demand specified in Shipper's NTS-S Service Agreement, Shipper shall not take and Transporter

shall not be obligated to deliver quantities in excess of the lesser of (i) Shipper's Scheduled Daily Delivery

Quantity, or (ii) the quantities actually received by Transporter for Shipper, less Retainage.

 

(i) Shipper shall tender to Transporter under this Rate Schedule quantities of gas sufficient to

replace any GSQ Draws, and thereby fully replenish its GSQ to reach a GSQ balance of zero, no later than the

last Day of the Month immediately following the Month in which the GSQ Draws were taken. Such replenishment

gas shall be scheduled under Shipper's applicable transportation Service Agreement as "GSQ Replenishment."

Unless otherwise designated by Shipper when scheduling service under this Rate Schedule in conjunction with

service under Rate Schedules FSS or SIT, Shipper shall be deemed to have replenished its GSQ to the extent

that its actual deliveries under this Rate Schedule, as determined in accordance with Section 8 (Meter

Allocations) of the General Terms and Conditions, are less than Shipper's Scheduled Daily Receipt Quantity,

less Retainage. If Shipper's GSQ Draws are not replaced in a timely manner, the penalty provisions under this

Rate Schedule shall apply.

 

(j) Shipper shall not under any circumstances be permitted to schedule or tender to Transporter,

and Transporter shall not be obligated to receive, quantities of gas that would cause Shipper's GSQ Balance to

exceed its GSQ.

 

(k) An NTS-S Service Agreement may be released and assigned in accordance with Section 14 (Release

and Assignment of Service Rights) of the General Terms and Conditions. Any such released NTS-S capacity shall

be treated as if it is capacity released under Transporter's FTS Rate Schedule, and the NTS-S service rights

assigned shall not include a Gas Supply Quantity (GSQ) as under this Rate Schedule, unless (i) otherwise

agreed by Transporter, or (ii) the release has the same primary delivery point(s) as the releasing Shipper's

NTS-S Service Agreement. 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 applicable General Terms and Conditions.

Such assignments shall not relieve a releasing Shipper from its obligation to replenish its GSQ Draws on a

timely basis, as required by Section 2(j) of this Rate Schedule.

 

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

different termination dates for specified volumes of Transportation Demand 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 Transportation Demand. 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(l), each of the varying

termination dates and associated volumes of Transportation Demand 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 Transportation Demand 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.
