FTS-2 RATE SCHEDULE

FIRM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Continued)

 

(e) Under normal operating conditions, a Shipper under this Rate Schedule may segment its

transportation capacity between primary physical receipt and delivery points, and secondary physical receipt

and delivery points at which it does not have primary receipt and delivery rights under its FTS-2 Service

Agreement. For purposes of this section, virtual aggregation points under Rate Schedule AS and virtual

scheduling points that represent physical receipt or delivery points (MLI Points) are eligible receipt or

delivery points for segmentation purposes. Supply pooling points under Rate Schedule IPP are not eligible

receipt or delivery points for segmentation purposes. For purposes of this Section 2(e), the phrase "normal

operating conditions" shall be defined to mean those situations in which Transporter is not required to: (i)

construct or install new facilities in order to accommodate a capacity segmentation request from a Shipper

under this Rate Schedule; or (ii) operate or modify Transporter's existing facilities in a manner

inconsistent with the current design and operation of such facilities in order to accommodate a capacity

segmentation request from a Shipper under this Rate Schedule. A Shipper may not use its segmented primary or

secondary physical points in such a way that its total nomination within any segment, or at any primary or

secondary points exceeds its original Transportation Demand in that segment, or at such point(s), provided

that, Shipper may segment its capacity to consist of forward hauls and backhauls up to the original

Transportation Demand to the same point at the same time, subject to the scheduling and allocation provisions

of Section 7 of the General Terms and Conditions. For such a segmentation backhaul to the same point,

Transporter shall provide such service on a secondary basis. Shipper shall not be permitted to segment its

transportation capacity under this Rate Schedule if such segmentation would limit Transporter's ability to

provide firm service to other Shippers or in situations where transportation capacity is not available in

particular segments or at primary or secondary points. Requests for segmentation of transportation capacity

under this Rate Schedule must be submitted by Shipper and Transporter shall evaluate such requests to

determine if capacity segmentation can be permitted as requested by Shipper. Transporter reserves the right

to evaluate and disallow segmentation on a case-by-case basis for those situations that are not operationally

feasible and not already described in this Section 2(e). Transporter shall review all properly submitted

requests for segmentation in zones where there are feasibility issues within ten (10) days, provided,

however, Transporter shall use reasonable efforts to accommodate a Shipper if a request for segmentation is

made less than ten (10) days before the desired effective date. Disallowance of segmentation requests will

be made on a non-discriminatory basis. Transporter will post on its EBB within 10 business days, the

explanation for any disallowance of segmentation not specifically described in this Tariff. Transporter will

post on its EBB the reasons for denial of any request for capacity segmentation.

 

(f) Service rights under an FTS-2 Service Agreement may be released and assigned in accordance

with Section 14 (Release and Assignment of Service Rights) of the General Terms and Conditions. Service

to an assignee under any such release and assignment shall be subject to the terms and conditions set

forth in this Rate Schedule and in the General Terms and Conditions. Under normal operating conditions, a

Shipper that releases its service rights under an FTS-2 Service Agreement may release transportation capacity

on any segment between primary physical receipt and delivery points, and secondary physical receipt and

delivery points at which it does not have primary receipt and delivery rights under its FTS-2 Service

Agreement. A Releasor may not re-release a released segment until such time as the Releasor either recalls

the released segment or the released segment reverts to the Releasor at the end of the release term.

Replacement Shippers that desire to re-release a released segment may release transportation capacity within

their acquired capacity segment and to any points within the zone for which the Shipper pays. The sum of

capacity released in any segment cannot exceed the Releasor's original Transportation Demand.
