RATE SCHEDULE INSS
INTERRUPTIBLE STORAGE SERVICE (Continued)
2.4 The injection, storage and withdrawal of gas pursuant to this
Rate Schedule shall have a lower priority than any and all
scheduled firm storage services, but superior to any and all
overrun service requested by firm storage Customers. The
Customer is required to schedule the injections and withdrawals
of gas under this Rate Schedule in accordance with Section 8 of
the General Terms and Conditions of Equitrans' FERC Gas Tariff.
If nominations for service under this Rate Schedule exceed, on
any day, Equitrans' ability to provide such service in
conjunction with other nominated storage services, Equitrans
will apply the service priorities set forth in Sections 6.9 and
8.5 of the General Terms and Conditions in determining what
service is scheduled.
2.5 Gas which is scheduled for daily injection or withdrawal is
nonetheless subject to interruption based upon changes in firm
storage service nominations received by Equitrans or when
necessary to maintain the operational integrity of Equitrans'
system. Prior notice will be given pursuant to Section 8.7(c) of
the General Terms and Conditions. In the event that Equitrans
notifies the Customer of an interruption in service under this Rate
Schedule, the Customer must cease deliveries to or receipts from
Equitrans, in whole or in part, as directed by Equitrans.
2.6 The capability to maintain gas in storage under this Rate
Schedule is similarly subject to interruption, and Equitrans
may require a Customer to withdraw all or part of its gas from
storage within the time period specified by Equitrans which
period shall be no less than three (3) days. Equitrans will
notify the Customer of the need to remove its gas from storage
and will specify the quantity to be withdrawn and the deadline
for withdrawal. For each day Equitrans is unable to schedule
the withdrawal of Customer's gas, the period specified for
withdrawal shall be extended by a corresponding number of days.
During the period specified by Equitrans for withdrawal,
Customer may negotiate a sale in place of its gas in storage to
another Customer with storage capacity available under one of
Equitrans' Storage Rate Schedules, and may transfer the
capacity to a Firm Storage Rate Schedule and Service Agreement
which the Customer holds provided that storage capacity is
available under the other Rate Schedule and Service Agreement.
If Customer's gas is not removed, transferred, or sold in place
by the end of the period designated by Equitrans, any remaining
gas balance at the end of said period shall be forfeited to
Equitrans free and clear of any liens or claims.
