10. IMBALANCE MANAGEMENT

 

For purposes of this section, an imbalance is the difference between the

scheduled quantity and the quantity measured at the Receipt and/or

Delivery Points.

 

10.1 Imbalance Administration

 

(a) Transporter shall, to the extent practicable, deliver

quantities for Shipper's account concurrently with the receipt

of receipt quantities.

 

(b) It shall be Shipper's responsibility, whether or not delegated

to another party, to cause gas to be delivered to Transporter

as scheduled at the Receipt Point(s) and cause gas to be taken

from Transporter at the Delivery Point(s) in accordance with

the applicable scheduled nominations. Recognizing reasonable

operational variations, Shipper shall attempt to conform

quantities to be received and delivered with those scheduled

and confirmed for each nomination cycle.

 

(c) Third Party Imbalance Management Services - Transporter shall

accommodate third-party imbalance management services on a

non-discriminatory basis as long as those services comply with

applicable NAESB WGQ Standards and do not adversely impact

system operations. Criteria for third-party services will

include compliance with NAESB WGQ nomination and confirmation

time lines, and meeting Transporter's credit requirements

appropriate for the quantity of Shipper imbalance gas for

which such third party may be responsible.

 

(d) Imbalances with Other Parties - Transporter shall not be

responsible for eliminating any imbalances between Shipper and

any third party, including imbalances between local

distribution companies and/or specific end users.

Furthermore, Transporter shall not be obligated to deviate

from its standard operating and accounting procedures in order

to reduce or eliminate any such imbalances.

 

(e) Persistent system constraints as referred to in this

Section 10 will be identified by posting on Transporter's

EBB.
