TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
5. SERVICE CONDITIONS (Continued)
5.6 Pressure Commitment. If mutually agreed upon in the TSA or
Operator agreement, Transporter may commit to maximum and minimum
receipt and delivery pressure levels to Shippers on a not unduly
discriminatory basis, and where necessary, upon specified
conditions, to ensure that such commitments do not have any adverse
effects on Transporter's system. If such commitment involves
service under Rate Schedules FT-H or NNTH the agreed upon pressure
commitment shall be consistent with the provisions of the rate
schedule. Such conditions may include quantity limitations or
other operational requirements to ensure the quality of service.
Transporter will post on its EBB agreed-upon maximum and minimum
receipt and delivery pressure commitments and any applicable
operating conditions. Transporter will not agree to a maximum or
minimum receipt or delivery pressure that will render it unable to
meet its existing firm obligations and, upon request, will provide
a written explanation to the Shipper explaining the operational
basis for rejecting any request for a maximum or minimum pressure.
5.7 Delivery Codes
(a) Scheduling and contracting will be conducted at the meter
level for all TSAs except where there exists an effective
Operator Point Aggregation Service Agreement ("OPASA") with
the DP Operator under Rate Schedule OPAS.
(b) Should a Shipper elect to contract and schedule using the D-
Code arrangement described in this Section 5.7, the Shipper's
TSA shall list the MDQs for the individual meters aggregated
into the D-Code arrangement. The contracted maximum delivery
meter quantity, as defined in the Shipper's TSA, will be
termed the meter "CMQ".
(i) The CMQ identifies the fully contracted MDQ level below
which the related MDOs may not be reduced.
(ii) The sum of the individual meter CMQs will be equal to
the D-Code MDQ.
(iii) Physical path rights pursuant to Section 8.1 of this
Tariff are not provided for by CMQs.
(iv) Upon termination of an OPASA, the D-Code MDQ will no
longer be applicable. In that event, the meter CMQ will
be deemed to be the MDQ for each meter and Transporter
will revise the TSA accordingly.
