3. TRANSPORTATION SERVICE PROVIDED (Continued)

 

3.5 Interruption or inability to schedule service at a secondary Receipt or Delivery

Point shall not render any Day an Unavailable Day.

 

3.6 In allocating interruptions of any kind among Buyers under this Rate Schedule

receiving service on the portion of Operator's system in which interruptions are

to be made, Operator shall (a) interrupt service to those Buyers having the

greatest number of allowable Unavailable Days remaining during that calendar year,

and (b) allocate capacity among those Buyers with an equal number of remaining

allowable Unavailable Days in that calendar year on a pro rata basis, based on

SDDQs. Alternatively, Operator shall interrupt service in accordance with an

alternative, non-discriminatory allocation methodology if, before issuing any

notices of unavailability, the alternative methodology has been agreed upon by

Operator and all affected Buyers.

 

3.7 If circumstances require interruptions or unavailability of service for more than

the maximum number of Unavailable Days in any calendar year, service under this

Rate Schedule shall be interrupted or made unavailable in accordance with the

priorities set forth in Sections 15 and 16 of the GT&C. In this event, Operator

shall provide a reservation charge credit to Buyer equal to the interrupted SDDQ

multiplied by the 100% load factor derivative of Buyer's reservation rate for each

Day of interruption beyond the maximum number of Unavailable Days; provided,

however, that (a) no reservation charge credit shall apply for an interruption

event that would otherwise be excused pursuant to Section 14 (Force Majeure) of

the General Terms and Conditions of this Tariff, and (b) the reservation charge

credit required pursuant to this section for any calendar year shall not exceed

the applicable reservation charges for Buyer for that calendar year absent any

crediting, as reduced by reservation charges applicable to service that was

actually provided under the OTS Service Agreement. Operator shall provide any

applicable credit to Buyer not later than each March 1 for the preceding calendar

year.

 

3.8 To the fullest extent practicable, Buyer shall deliver to Operator and shall

receive Natural Gas from Operator on a uniform hourly flow basis during the day.

Operator's obligation to transport Natural Gas for Buyer shall not exceed 1/24th

of the applicable MFTQ (as adjusted for any Unavailable Days pursuant to Section

3.4 above) in any hour of the Day. Operator shall provide additional hourly

flexibility on a not-unduly discriminatory basis, provided that Operator has the

operational capability to do so and provided further that the additional

flexibility will not impair Operator's ability to render other nominated or

scheduled firm services.
