10. IMBALANCE MANAGEMENT (Continued)
10.5 Allocation of Delivery Quantities
The allocation of delivery quantities shall be governed by the pre-
determined allocation methods ("PDAs") set forth in this Section 10.5 or
by an applicable operational balancing agreement ("OBA").
(a) A DP Operator may elect from one of the PDA methods described in
Section 10.5(b) for the allocation of delivery quantities.
(i) Except as provided below, a DP Operator's election of a PDA
method must be received no later than the last Business Day
of the Month preceding the effective Month and shall remain
in effect until changed by the DP Operator for the first Day
of a subsequent Month. DP Operator's election shall be
effective for a time period no less than one Month and shall
be posted on Transporter's EBB.
(A) If all affected parties consent in writing or via
email, a DP Operator can change its PDA method during
the effective Month to apply retroactively to the first
Day of such Month. Transporter shall determine and
notify all parties which are affected by such a change.
(ii) Pursuant to the applicable PDA method stated in Section
10.5(b) below, if measured gas flow at a Delivery Point is
recorded and no scheduling has occurred, the metered
quantities will be recorded on a designated default TSA
elected by the DP Operator. If such default agreement does
not belong to the DP Operator, the Shipper whose TSA is
elected as the default TSA must authorize such TSA to be
used prior to the last Business Day of the Month preceding
the effective Month and such election shall remain in place
until changed by the Shipper or DP Operator for the first
Day of the subsequent Month.
(iii)Absent the DP Operator electing the Swing method pursuant to
Section 10.5(b)(ii), quantities at a Delivery Point shall be
allocated pro rata based on scheduled quantities as
described in Section 10.5(b)(i) below. (NAESB Standard
