GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Cont'd)
40. Segmentation Pooling
40.1 A Shipper contracting for firm transportation service on Transporter under Rate Schedules FTS, NTS,
NTS-S, TPS, SST or OPT may elect, subject to the below limitations, to segment its contractual entitlement
into two segments as follows:
(a) Supply Segment. One segment designated as the "Supply Segment" must be nominated from primary
and/or secondary receipt point(s) to the Segmentation Pool. The Supply Segment contract Transportation Demand
shall be limited to the Transportation Demand set forth in the firm transportation service agreement being
segmented. The Supply Segment is not entitled to utilize secondary delivery points other than the
Segmentation Pool and is not subject to Commodity Charges or Retainage by Transporter.
(b) Market Segment. The second segment designated as the "Market Segment" shall be nominated from the
Segmentation Pool and/or secondary receipt point(s) to Shipper's primary and/or secondary delivery point(s).
Subject to the exceptions set forth in Section 40.5 below, the Market Segment contract Transportation Demand
shall be limited to the available Transportation Demand of the firm transportation service agreement being
segmented, and shall be subject to all applicable rates and surcharges provided for in this Tariff.
(c) The Segmentation Pool will be a secondary receipt or delivery point, as applicable.
(d) If a Shipper segments its SST and/or TPS Service Agreement, the SST and/or TPS capacity shall be
treated as if it is capacity segmented under Transporter's FTS Rate Schedule. In all other respects, the
provisions of the SST and/or TPS Rate Schedule will control.
40.2 A segmented firm transportation service agreement under Rate Schedules FTS, NTS, NTS-S, or OPT
shall be subject to the provisions of (i) Section 7 (Capacity Allocation) of the General Terms and Conditions;
(ii) Section 16 (Interruptions of Service) of the General Terms and Conditions; (iii) Section 17 (Operational
Flow Orders) of the General Terms and Conditions; and (iv) any other applicable provisions of Transporter's
FERC Gas Tariff.
40.3 A firm service agreement may be segmented and released and assigned in accordance with Section 14
(Release and Assignment of Service Rights) of the General Terms and Conditions; provided, a segmented firm
service agreement may not be permanently released and assigned. Service to a replacement Shipper under any
such release and assignment shall be subject to the provisions set forth in the underlying rate schedule and
in the applicable General Terms and Conditions.
40.4 Transporter reserves the right at any time to control or restrict segmentation when, in Transporter's
sole discretion, such segmentation would result in a degradation of service or pose a threat to the sound
operation of Transporter's system. Such control or restriction may be necessary to ensure that gas is
available at particular locations at particular times.
40.5 The Segmentation Pool must be in balance in each nomination cycle and on a daily basis. Therefore, the
gas to be transported from the Segmentation Pool to market must equal the amount of gas supply arising from
transportation into the Segmentation Pool and/or from inventory transfers.
