ITS-2 RATE SCHEDULE

INTERRUPTIBLE TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Continued)

 

(e) The interconnections at which service is available under this Rate Schedule shall be

maintained on a Master List of Interconnections (MLI) that Transporter shall post on its Electronic Bulletin

Board (EBB). The interconnection points on the MLI shall be available to Shippers and shall be incorporated

by reference in Shipper's ITS-2 Service Agreements.

 

(f) During any Month, Shipper shall not be permitted to increase its existing flowing quantities

under this Rate Schedule, regardless of the Transportation Quantity set forth in Shipper's ITS-2 Service

Agreement, if such increase would cause a reduction of existing quantities flowing on Transporter's system

under a Service Agreement between Transporter and Shipper of equal or higher priority. A scheduled temporary

reduction in the quantities being transported, if requested by Shipper and approved by Transporter, shall not

reduce the level of Shipper's existing quantities flowing on Transporter's system for purposes of this

paragraph.

 

(g) Service rights under an ITS-2 Service Agreement may not be released and assigned.

 

(h) Imbalances under this Rate Schedule are subject to the following requirements:

 

(1) All imbalances must be eliminated by the end of the calendar month in which they are

reported to Shipper.

 

(2) A Shipper's imbalance account will not be credited with any imbalance volumes unless

(i) the gas is designated as imbalance gas by the Shipper prior to Transporter's receipt of any

imbalance gas by Transporter or delivery of any imbalance gas by Transporter, and (ii) the Shipper has

properly nominated and scheduled the gas for transportation in accordance with this Tariff, has been

awarded capacity, has had its nomination confirmed and been actually allocated quantities of gas for

shipment.

 

(3) Imbalances incurred in one rate zone may be eliminated by netting or trading in that

same rate zone or may be eliminated by netting or trading between rate zones, although elimination of

the imbalance between rate zones may constitute transportation service for which charges apply.

 

(4) Any imbalance which is not eliminated by the end of the calendar month in which it is

reported to the Shipper is subject to the penalties provided for under this Tariff.

 

3. BIDDING PROCEDURE

 

(a) Transporter shall post a notice on its EBB setting forth: (i) the capacity it anticipates

will be available for the upcoming Month for bidding under this Rate Schedule, including capacity at

applicable receipt and delivery points; and (ii) the Minimum Bid Rate, inclusive of applicable surcharges for

such capacity. The Minimum Bid Rate shall not be higher than the total effective Maximum ITS-2 Rate set

forth in Transporter's Tariff.

 

(b) Shippers seeking to obtain all or a portion of that capacity shall, through Transporter's

EBB, submit their bids for the capacity to Transporter, together with their nominations of service (i.e., the

quantity bid at each nominated point) under the provisions of Section 6 (Nominating, Scheduling, and

Monitoring) of the General Terms and Conditions. Multiple bids may be submitted, and bids may be withdrawn

prior to the nomination deadline. Bids must comply with Section 3(c) below. All bidding shall be open until

the nomination deadline. Transporter shall post all bids received, including quantities and receipt and

delivery points.

 

(c) Shipper's bid for capacity under this Rate Schedule shall state the rate Shipper is offering

to pay for the service it has nominated in terms of cents per Dth (¢/Dth) to the nearest hundredth of a cent

(00.00¢). Shipper's bid rate shall be no lower than the Minimum Bid Rate and no higher than the total

effective Maximum ITS-2 Rate as set forth on the currently effective rate tariff sheets of this Tariff.

Bids submitted for higher than the Maximum ITS-2 Rate shall be deemed to be at the Maximum ITS-2 Rate. Bids

submitted for higher than a previously agreed to discounted rate shall be deemed to supercede such discounted

rate. Transporter may reject any bids: (i) for an amount lower than the Minimum Bid Rate; or (ii) from

bidders that do not currently have an ITS-2 Service Agreement with Transporter.
