GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Cont'd)

 

7.7 Storage Injection Points. For nominations for which storage is the point of delivery, 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 FSS, FSS-M, FBS, NTS, NTS-S and GTS. Among Shippers requesting deliveries into

storage under the FSS, FSS-M, FBS, NTS, NTS-S, and GTS Rate Schedules, Transporter shall allocate capacity on

a pro rata basis based upon each such Shipper's respective level of Storage Contract Quantity (SCQ), or Gas

Supply Quantity (GSQ).

 

(b) Rate Schedule ISS and Overrun Quantities Under Rate Schedules FSS, FSS-M and FBS. When

Shippers seek to inject quantities into storage either under the ISS Rate Schedule or in excess of their

Maximum Daily Injection Quantity under the FSS, FSS-M and FBS Rate Schedules, Transporter shall allocate

capacity first on the basis of the highest rate being paid for that capacity, and then among Shippers paying

the same rate, pro rata based on those Shippers' nominated delivery quantities.

 

(c) Rate Schedule SIT. Transporter shall allocate capacity among Shippers requesting deliveries

into storage under this Rate Schedule in accordance with the priority of each Shipper's underlying

transportation Service Agreement. Transporter shall allocate capacity (i) first to Shippers under firm

transportation Service Agreements (including the OPT Rate Schedule) and, among those Shippers, on the basis of

each such Shipper's respective Transportation Demand, and (ii) second to Shippers under interruptible

transportation Service Agreements and, among those Shippers, first on the basis of price and then, if the

prices being paid are equal, pro rata based on those Shipper's respective nominated quantities.

 

7.8 Allocations Based on Value. For purposes of allocating capacity pursuant to Sections 7.2(e)(1),

7.3(d), 7.4(d), 7.6(c) and (d), and 7.7(b) and (c), Shippers paying more than the Recourse Rate will be

considered to be paying the Recourse Rate.

 

7.9 Posting Procedures for Capacity Allocation. Except for force majeure events and/or events or

conditions which threaten the integrity of Transporter's system or Transporter's ability to meet its firm

service obligations, Transporter will notify Shippers at least 24 hours in advance on its Internet EBB (1) of

the effective dates of the market restrictions; (2) of the type of market restrictions that will be applicable

during the affected dates; and (3) to the extent applicable, the areas of the system where market restrictions

will be applied. In addition to the general restrictions described below, more specific restrictions may be

imposed when necessary in accordance with the provisions of this Tariff.
