RATE SCHEDULE NOFT

NO-NOTICE FIRM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Continued)

 

 

Under no circumstances shall the five-day payback requirement apply

to Customers supplying their own gas for all deliveries under this

Rate Schedule.

 

5.3 If an imbalance resulting from the provision of no-notice

service is not resolved by the Customer within 5 days as

described above, the Customer will be prohibited from

calling upon no-notice service for the remainder of the

calendar month in which the imbalance was incurred or until said

imbalance is corrected. If the five-day payback period extends into

the next calendar month after the month in which the imbalance was

incurred, the imbalance will be carried forward to the next month.

Equitrans will resume no-notice service to the Customer in the

subsequent month as soon as the imbalance carried forward from the

prior month is resolved. If the Customer fails to resolve the

imbalance within the five-day period, the Customer will be prohibited

from calling upon no-notice service for the remainder of the month in

which the payback period expired.

 

5.4 Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 5.3, Equitrans will

continue no-notice service to Customer after the expiration of the

payback period even where the Customer has not resolved its imbalance

to the extent that gas dedicated to no-notice service remains in

storage and the Customer's failure to resolve a prior imbalance does

not impair Equitrans' ability to meet its other service obligations.

 

5.5 At the end of the month in which the payback period expired,

imbalances resulting from the provision of no-notice service will be

resolved in accordance with Section 12 of the General Terms and

Conditions of Equitrans' FERC Gas Tariff.

 

5.6 A Customer will not be permitted to exceed its MDQ either in

no-notice deliveries or pipeline receipts unless expressly

authorized by Equitrans.

 

6. AUTHORIZED NO-NOTICE OVERRUNS

 

Upon request of Customer, Equitrans in its reasonable discretion may

receive transport and deliver natural gas in excess of Customer's

no-notice MDQ specified in its Transportation Service Agreement. Said

overrun must be requested by Customer in advance, and shall be authorized

by Equitrans if operating conditions permit and overruns can be

accomplished without adverse impact to any other Customer.
