GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Cont'd)

 

7. CAPACITY ALLOCATION

 

This Section sets forth the manner in which Transporter shall allocate capacity among its Rate

Schedules when it has received nominations from Shippers that exceed available capacity.

 

7.1 General Priority. Transporter shall allocate capacity on its system in the following order commencing

with the highest priority:

 

(a) capacity at delivery points;

 

(b) capacity at any point between the receipt points and delivery points that is restricted

("internal constraint point"), beginning with the point closest to the delivery point if

capacity at more than one internal point is restricted; and

 

(c) capacity at receipt points.

 

7.2 Method of Allocating Transportation Delivery Points. For transportation capacity at delivery points

under Rate Schedules FTS, NTS, NTS-S, TPS, SST, GTS, OPT, ITS and PAL and firm X-Rate Schedules set forth in

Volume No. 2 of this Tariff, Transporter shall allocate capacity sequentially among the Rate Schedule priority

groupings set forth below and within those Rate Schedule priority groupings, in the manner set forth below:

 

(a) Rate Schedules FTS, NTS, NTS-S, TPS, SST, GTS and X-Rate Schedules. For deliveries to primary

delivery points under the FTS, NTS, NTS-S TPS, SST and GTS Rate Schedules, and under firm X-Rate Schedules set

forth in Volume No. 2 of this Tariff, upon the occurrence of a force majeure event or the existence of a

condition identified in Section 16 (Interruptions of Service) of the General Terms and Conditions, Transporter

shall allocate capacity among those Shippers on a pro rata basis, based upon those Shippers' respective levels

of Transportation Demand.

 

(b) Rate Schedule OPT. For deliveries to primary delivery points under the OPT Rate Schedule

during the Winter Season, Transporter shall allocate capacity among Shippers on the basis of each Shipper's

respective remaining number of days of interruption, with capacity allocated first to those Shippers with the

fewest remaining days of interruption. For Shippers with the same number of remaining days of interruption,

Transporter shall allocate capacity pro rata based upon those Shippers' respective levels of Transportation

Demand. For deliveries to primary delivery points under the OPT Rate Schedule during the Summer Season,

Transporter, upon the occurrence of a force majeure event, shall allocate capacity among Shippers on a pro

rata basis, based upon those Shippers' respective levels of Transportation Demand.
