Transporter shall allow LMS-MA Balancing Parties to trade
imbalances with other LMS-MA or LMS-PA Balancing Parties within
the same Operational Impact Area, as defined in Section 1 of the
General Terms and Conditions, if the two Balancing Parties'
imbalances are offsetting balancing for the Month, such that the
net imbalance for each Balancing Party after the completion of
the trade would be reduced to a quantity closer to zero. A
Balancing Party may trade any imbalance with another Balancing
Party, provided that the trade shall not result in a
transportation path which crosses a Posted Point of Restriction,
as defined in Section 1 of the General Terms and Conditions, for
When imbalances are traded, a Transportation Trade Component
shall be determined for each of the imbalances to be traded.
For each LMS-PA imbalance to be traded, the Transportation Trade
Component shall be deemed to be zero. For each LMS-MA imbalance
to be traded, the Transportation Trade Component shall be equal
to (1) Transporter's commodity rate under Rate Schedule FT-A,
FT-GS, or FT-L, as applicable, multiplied by the traded
quantity, plus (2) an additional amount to cover Transporter's
cost of gas for the system fuel and use and lost and unaccounted
for gas. The additional amount shall be calculated by
multiplying the amount of fuel necessary to transport the traded
quantity on Transporter's system by the Average Price as defined
in Section 8.5(c)(i) below.
For a Balancing Party with a due pipeline imbalance, Transporter
shall assess a charge equal to the calculated Transportation
Trade Component by including the charge in the Balancing Party's
invoice for the Month in which the trade was finalized. For a
Balancing Party with a due Shipper imbalance, Transporter shall
reflect a credit equal to the calculated Transportation Trade
Component on the Balancing Party's invoice for the Month in
which the trade was finalized.
