25.2 Hydrocarbon Dewpoint Specification. Transporter may not refuse to accept receipt of gas with
a Cricondentherm Hydrocarbon Dewpoint ("CHDP") equal to or less than fifteen degrees Fahrenheit (15ºF), provided
that gas satisfies all other applicable provisions of Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff. This standard will be
referred to as Transporter's Hydrocarbon Dewpoint Safe Harbor. Transporter may, as operationally necessary,
establish and post on its EBB a CHDP limit for receipts (no lower than the Hydrocarbon Dewpoint Safe Harbor)
that would prevent actual or anticipated hydrocarbon liquid fallout on Transporter's system, or assure that gas
would be accepted for delivery at interconnects with interstate or intrastate pipelines, end-users, and local
(a) Transporter has discretion to impose CHDP limits on its entire system, or on specified
portions of its system in a not unduly discriminatory manner, provided that any limit will not be lower than the
Hydrocarbon Dewpoint Safe Harbor, except as provided in Section 25.4. When Transporter posts a CHDP limit on
its system, or for specified portions of its system, all gas receipts into the affected areas must meet the
posted CHDP limit. Such posted CHDP limits shall remain in effect no longer than necessary.
(b) For purposes of posting CHDP limits, Transporter's system is divided into four HDP
Segments. The Market Segment includes all of Transporter's system at and downstream of Rayne, Louisiana; the
West Lateral Segment includes all points west of Rayne, excluding the Blue Water System; the Blue Water System
Segment includes all points on the Blue Water System at and upstream of Egan, Louisiana; and the East Lateral
Segment includes all points east of Rayne, excluding the Blue Water System.
