that OPASA and use the D-Code arrangement described here,
provided that all the other conditions of this Section 5.7
have been met. Delivery meters identified in an OPASA may be

system constraint point; and
C. No Shipper or other Interconnecting Party shall be
disadvantaged as a result of a multi-meter D-Code.
D. Multi-meter D-Code locations must be operated by
the same party.

in a not unduly discriminatory manner.
(d) The OPASA identified in Section 5.7(a) shall identify an MDO
and an MHO at each delivery meter aggregated in the OPASA
providing service to that DP Operator and such other
conditions as necessary to ensure the reliability of firm
service to all shippers.
(i) The MDO and the MHO for a Delivery Point shall not
exceed the meter capacity at that point or the upstream
capacity available on a firm basis to serve that DP
(ii) Operators may utilize different delivery meters within
their designated D-Code; however, Transporter shall have
no obligation to provide service above the MDO or MHO at
any individual meter or the applicable MDQ for that D-
