GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
9. OPERATING CONDITIONS
9.1 Receipt and Delivery Quantities. If Shipper does not accept the quantity nominated by Shipper at the
Delivery Point on any day or days, then Transporter may refuse to receive gas from Shipper at the Receipt
Point on such day or days. Transporter may refuse to deliver quantities to Shipper at the Delivery Point if
Shipper should be unable to provide the equivalent quantities to Transporter at the Receipt Point.
9.2 Daily Rates of Flow. The gas to be transported hereunder shall be received and delivered at uniform
hourly and daily rates of flow as nearly as practicable, subject to the daily nominations as provided in
Shipper's applicable Rate Schedule and Section 6 hereof. It is recognized that due to operating conditions,
the quantities of gas received and delivered may not be in balance on any one particular day. Transporter
and Shipper shall endeavor to keep such variance to a minimum.
9.3 Flow Control. Nothing contained herein or in Transporter's Rate Schedules shall limit Transporter's
right to operate flow control or other equipment to require Shippers to remain precisely in balance as to
receipts and deliveries at any time. Failure by Transporter to operate flow control or other equipment, or
any allowance by Transporter of imbalances up to or exceeding balancing limits shall not limit Transporter’s
right to require Shippers to maintain strict balances or Transporter’s right to operate flow control or
other equipment to require Shippers to remain precisely in balance.
9.4 Hourly Flow. Transporter shall have the right but not the obligation to mutually agree with any
Shipper to an hourly flow rate at any receipt and/or delivery point(s) identified in the Rate Schedule FT-1
pro forma service agreement that is different than the even hourly flow rate required by Section 9.2 above.
In the event that Transporter and Shipper mutually agree to such an hourly flow rate, the hourly flow rate
will be specified in the pro forma service agreement in the blank space provided. Transporter shall have the
right to install flow control or other equipment to ensure compliance with the hourly flow rate agreed to by
Transporter and Shipper under this Section 9.4.
9.5 Third Party Arrangements. Shipper shall be responsible for making all necessary arrangements with
third parties (i) at or upstream of the point(s) of receipt at which Shipper tenders gas to Transporter for
transportation services, and (ii) at or downstream of points of delivery at which Transporter delivers gas
for the account of Shipper. Shipper shall be responsible for (i) insuring that any such arrangements are
consistent with the terms and conditions of the applicable Rate Schedule under which it seeks to have
Transporter transport the gas, and (ii) requiring such third parties to confirm all of Shipper's nominations
with Transporter in a form and manner approved by Transporter. Such third-party arrangements shall be
coordinated with Transporter.
9.6 Service Obligation. Transporter shall not be required to perform service under any of its Rate
Schedules if any of the facilities necessary to render the requested service do not exist or are not
available including periods during which facilities are being maintained or repaired, in which case,
interruptions of service shall be made consistent with Section 16 (Interruptions of Service) of the General
Terms and Conditions. Transporter shall not be required to construct facilities; provided, however, that
Shipper may request construction of facilities, including under the provisions of Section 27 (Construction
of Facilities) of the General Terms and Conditions.
