GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Cont'd)

 

(f) Rate Schedule PAL. For parking or lending at delivery points under Rate Schedule PAL,

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

respective nominated quantities.

 

7.3 Internal Constraint Points. For capacity at internal constraint points under Rate Schedules FTS, NTS,

NTS-S, TPS, SST, GTS, OPT, ITS and PAL and 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 OPT, and X-Rate Schedules. For capacity at

internal constraint points when using primary firm rights under the FTS, NTS, NTS-S, TPS, SST and GTS Rate

Schedules, and firm X-Rate Schedules set forth in Volume No. 2 of this Tariff, and at internal contraint

points under the OPT Rate Schedule during the Summer Season, Transporter, 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, shall allocate such capacity to Shippers 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, and at

internal constraint points under the OPT Rate Schedule during the Summer Season, on a pro rata basis, based

upon each such Shipper's respective Transportation Demand. Transporter shall then allocate capacity at

internal constraint points under the OPT Rate Schedule during the Winter Season on a pro rata basis, based

upon each such Shipper's respective Transportation Demand.

 

(b) Secondary Capacity at the Internal Constraint Points Under Rate Schedules FTS, NTS, NTS-S, TPS,

SST, GTS and OPT. Any interruptions or other allocation reductions to Shipper's secondary deliveries through

internal constraint points under the OPT Rate Schedule shall not reduce Shipper's allowable days of

interruption under that Rate Schedule. For secondary capacity at internal constraint points under the FTS,

NTS, NTS-S, TPS, SST and GTS Rate Schedules, and for secondary capacity at internal constraint points under

the OPT Rate Schedule when not interrupted pursuant to the provisions of the OPT Rate Schedule, Transporter

shall allocate capacity in the following manner:

 

(1) Requests to obtain capacity to secondary delivery points will be evaluated based on

the availability of capacity. Transporter shall post on its Internet EBB those secondary delivery

points by Market Area that Shipper(s) with a particular primary delivery point can access on a priority

basis. Transporter shall, using Transporter's reasonable judgment, have the right to revise the list

from time to time as necessary to protect Transporter's system integrity and primary firm obligations.

Transporter will give as much advance notice of changes in the list as is practicable. Whenever

possible, Transporter shall announce changes in the list at least twenty-four hours prior to the start

of the Gas Day. At the time an announcement of a change(s) is made, Transporter shall post a brief

explanation of the reasons supporting the change(s). This priority, and the priorities in subparagraphs

(2) through (4) below, shall apply where Shipper's aggregate deliveries at primary and secondary

delivery points do not exceed Shipper's Transportation Demand. If a secondary delivery point by Market

Area is not listed, Shippers will be subject to the process for allocating secondary firm and

interruptible ("Non-Firm") capacity described in this Section 7.3(b)(5) below.
