RATE SCHEDULE SS-3
WINTER STORAGE SERVICE (Continued)
Equitrans may allow any Customer, upon request to inject gas into
storage in excess of the Customer's MDIQ. Equitrans shall be
obligated to accept gas for storage for Customer's account only
when and to the extent that Customer's storage inventory is less
than its TASQ.
Scheduling of injections including overruns shall be provided by
Customer to Equitrans in accordance with Section 8 of the General
Terms and Conditions of Equitrans' FERC Gas Tariff.
5.3 Customer is required to inject ninety-seven percent (97%) of
its TASQ under this Rate Schedule by the end of the injection
period. If the Customer fails to inject up to the level of
97% of its TASQ by the end of the contractual injection
period, the Customer will not be permitted to draw upon the
undelivered storage quantities in the subsequent withdrawal
period and will be subject to a reduced MDWQ during the subsequent
withdrawal period. Depending on the operating conditions of
its storage reservoirs, Equitrans may elect to inject gas into
storage on the Customers behalf, and may assess a Storage
Imbalance Penalty on any quantities so injected, up to the
level of 97% of the Customer's TASQ. The Storage Imbalance Penalty
shall be equal to the cost of acquiring gas for injection into
storage based on the average price of Appalachian spot market gas
delivered to CNG Transmission Corp. and Columbia Gas Transmission
Corp., as such prices shall appear in "Inside FERC's Gas Market
Report", or similar publication, during the period of time that gas
is injected on the Customer's behalf, plus the required storage
injection charge, plus an additional charge of $0.25/Dth. If
Equitrans injects gas on the Customer's behalf, the Customer will be
permitted to call upon the injected quantities during the withdrawal
season up to the level of its TASQ.
