GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
11. LNG INVENTORY TRANSFERS AMONG BUYERS
For purposes of this Section, the term Buyer shall be defined to include buyer(s) pursuant
to Section 30 of the GT&C.
(a) Transfers. Upon receiving the approval of Operator, a Buyer may transfer LNG
inventory under its Rate Schedule LTD-1, LTD-2, FPS-1, FPS-2, FPS-3 or Section 3 Firm
Services to a different Buyer's account under Operator's Rate Schedule LTD-1, LTD-2,
FPS-1, FPS-2, FPS-3 or Section 3 Firm Services if such other Buyer agrees in writing
to the transfer.
(b) Requests to Transfer. Operator will, upon a Buyer's request, post an announcement of
Buyer's desire to transfer inventory, but Buyer shall remain responsible for making
all arrangements affecting the proposed transfer. To request an inventory transfer,
the Transferor and Transferee Buyers shall send a completed Inventory Transfer Form
(in the form included under Miscellaneous Forms in this Tariff) via fax, mail, e-mail
or EBB to Operator. Transfers shall be irrevocable once requested, and, if approved,
effective immediately upon Operator's notice of acceptance. Retroactive transfers
shall not be permitted.
(c) Processing of Requests. Transfers between Rate Schedule LTD-1 and Section 3 Firm
Services will occur at the next available nomination cycle. For all other Buyers,
within two Business Days of Operator's receipt of a completed and executed Inventory
Transfer Form, Operator shall notify the Buyers listed on that completed and executed
Inventory Transfer Form of Operator's acceptance or rejection pursuant to Section
11(d) below of the proposed transfer. Operator shall make reasonable efforts to
process any transfer request in less than two Business Days where circumstances
permit. Operator will respond to "fast track" requests received by 9 a.m. CCT on a
Business Day by no later than 9 a.m. CCT on the following Business Day. The following
categories will be considered as "fast track" requests:
(i) transfers between accounts under identical Rate Schedules;
(ii) transfers between accounts under different Rate Schedules requested during
Operator's Injection Season; and
(iii) all transfers for quantities of 10,000 dth or less (with that limit applicable
to each account each Business Day).
(d) Rejection by Operator. Operator may reject any proposed transfer under this Section
11 if it determines that such transfer cannot be accommodated:
(i) without diminishing Operator's ability to provide firm service to any Buyer;
(ii) without increasing Operator's firm service obligations;
(iii) because the LNG sought to be transferred is not available in Buyer's account;
(iv) because of an imbalance status of the transferor's and transferee's accounts, as
reflected in Operator's records; or
(v) because the requested transfer is retroactive.
(e) Inventory transfers remain subject to all applicable tariff limitations (including
limits on FPS injection, storage and withdrawal rights) and applicable Commission
policies (including the "shipper must have title" rule).
