18. INVENTORY TRANSFERS AND IMBALANCE TRANSFERS

 

18.1 Transfers Generally. A Shipper may transfer inventory in its account to its other account(s) or the

accounts of other Shippers under this Section. For purposes of this Section, the term "account" shall mean a

Shipper's gas account under a storage or transportation Service Agreement with Transporter. A Shipper seeking

to transfer inventory between accounts pursuant to this Section shall notify Transporter electronically

through Transporter's EBB using Transporter's approved nomination form as set forth on Transporter's EBB.

Transporter shall not be obligated to provide any information to a Shipper concerning the account status of

other Shippers' accounts. Transporter will permit a Shipper, upon request, to post on Transporter's EBB an

announcement of Shipper's desire to transfer inventory, but Shipper shall remain responsible for making all

arrangements effecting the proposed transfer.

 

18.2 No Cost Transfers. A Shipper may transfer inventory from an account under a Service Agreement with

Transporter set forth under column "From" to an account under a Service Agreement with Transporter set forth

under Column "To", as set forth below, without incurring transportation, storage, injection or withdrawal

charges or surcharges, and without assessment of Retainage on the transferred quantity:

(e) In addition, a Shipper with an SIT Service Agreement with Transporter which has a remaining

inventory balance thereunder after having crossed-zero once within the prior 10-day period pursuant to Section

3(b) of the SIT Rate Schedule (and other than as a result of cost-free inventory transfers pursuant to this

Section 18) may transfer such remaining inventory balance, or portion thereof, to another Shipper's (or

Shippers') SIT Service Agreement with Transporter; provided that (1) such transferee Shipper (or Shippers) has

also crossed-zero once within the same prior 10-day period pursuant to Section 3(b) of the SIT Rate Schedule

(and other than as a result of cost-free inventory transfers pursuant to this Section 18) and (2) both

Shippers' accounts move closer to, but without crossing zero as a result of such transfer. In addition, an SIT

Shipper shall not create an SIT balance where one did not previously exist by engaging in an inventory

transfer with another SIT Shipper.

 

(f) Transportation imbalances that are unresolved (other than through operation of the applicable

terms of this Tariff; e.g, the FSS or FSS-M Rate Schedules, General Terms and Conditions Section 8,

predetermined allocation agreements, etc.) under a Shipper's non-FSS or FSS-M Service Agreements may be

transferred to the Segmentation Pool by nominating such imbalance quantities for transfer. There will be no

charge for transferring imbalance quantities to the Segmentation Pool under this provision.

 

18.3 Nominated Transfers.

 

(a) A Shipper seeking to transfer inventory from and to accounts under Service Agreements with

Transporter other than those permitted without cost or assessment of Retainage as set forth in Section 18.2

shall nominate such inventory quantities for transportation pursuant to the terms of the Service Agreement

with Transporter under which said inventory is held in account for Shipper; provided that a Shipper with a SIT

Service Agreement with Transporter shall not transfer inventory to the SIT account of another Shipper unless

both Shippers' accounts move closer to, but without crossing zero as a result of such transfer. In cases where

an FSS, FSS-M, FBS, ISS, or ISS-M Shipper proposes to transfer inventory to an SIT Shipper, the SIT Shipper's

account must move closer to zero as a result of the transfer. In addition, a SIT Shipper shall not create a

SIT balance where one did not exist previously by engaging in an inventory transfer with another Shipper.

Nominations shall be pursuant to Section 6 (Nominations, Scheduling and Monitoring) of the General Terms and

Conditions. Nominated and transferred inventory quantities shall be subject to the charges and surcharges, and

assessment of Retainage applicable to the Service Agreement with Transporter specified in the nomination.

 

(b) A Shipper may transfer inventory from its FSS, FSS-M, FBS, ISS or ISS-M Service

Agreement account with Transporter to the Segmentation Pool by nominating such inventory quantities for

transfer. Shipper shall not be subject to transportation commodity charges or Retainage on the transportation

into the Segmentation Pool but will be subject to applicable storage withdrawal fees when gas is removed from

storage for transfer to the Segmentation Pool.
