22. OPERATIONAL BALANCING AGREEMENTS (OBA) AND PRE-DETERMINED ALLOCATIONS
22.1 For the purpose of minimizing operational conflicts between various pipeline
facilities with respect to the delivery of gas to and from Crossroads' facilities,
Crossroads may execute an Operational Balancing Agreement ("OBA") with an operator
of a Point of Receipt or a Point of Delivery interconnecting with Crossroads'
system (herein called OBA Party). Such an OBA shall specify the gas custody
transfer procedures, including but not limited to, allocations of gas flow among
parties and/or contracts, to be followed by Crossroads and OBA Party for the
confirmation of scheduled quantities to be received by Crossroads at the Point of
Receipt or delivered by Crossroads at Point of Delivery. Such an OBA will provide
that any variance between actual quantities and confirmed nomination quantities at
the point where the OBA is in place for any Gas Day shall be subject to daily
scheduling and monthly balancing provisions as set forth in the applicable Rate
Schedule under which the gas is transported on Crossroads and that such daily
scheduling and monthly balancing variances are the responsibility of the OBA Party.
The tolerance level for an OBA shall be ten percent (10%).
To facilitate the determination of variances under an OBA on a timely basis, Crossroads
and the OBA Party will agree on necessary measurement and accounting procedures.
Crossroads shall post on the Crossroads EBB System those Points of Receipt and Points
of Delivery at which an OBA is in effect.
22.2 Crossroads shall have no obligation to negotiate and execute an OBA with any party.
22.3 Pre-determined Allocations ("PDAs"): In the absence of an effective OBA at any
point of receipt or delivery, gas shall be allocated on a daily basis among parties
and/or contracts at any such point in accordance with a PDA or, in the alternative, in
accordance with the default mechanism set forth in this section.
