APPALACHIAN GATHERING SERVICE
This Rate Schedule is available to any party (hereinafter called
"Customer") which has (i) requested Appalachian gathering service
from Equitrans, L.P. (hereinafter called "Equitrans"); (ii) entered into
an AGS service agreement with Equitrans for service under this Rate
Schedule; and (iii) complied with the provisions of this Rate Schedule
and with all other provisions of this Tariff.
2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE
2.1 This Rate Schedule shall apply to the gathering of natural gas from
designated Appalachian receipt points for delivery to the Gathering
Aggregation Points described in Section 3.1 of this Rate Schedule.
These Gathering Aggregation Points are not physical delivery points
on the Equitrans' gathering system but are locations where
Appalachian supplies are aggregated for downstream transportation.
Service under this Rate Schedule shall apply to all gas nominated by
the Customer under this Rate Schedule for delivery into a Gathering
Aggregation Point up to the Gathering Quantity (GQ) established in
the Customer's AGS Service Agreement.
2.2 To qualify for this service, a Customer must maintain a minimum of 10
dth/day of actual flowing supply at each of its Gathering Aggregation
Points, exclusive of any transfers or imbalance quantities. Failure
of the Customer to maintain an average of the minimum flowing supply
at a specific Gathering Aggregation Point over a consecutive three
month period may, at Equitrans' discretion, result in removal of such
Gathering Aggregation Point from Customer's AGS Service Agreement.
2.3 Equitrans' only obligations under this Rate Schedule shall be to
receive gas from any Appalachian receipt point and to permit that gas
to flow against the existing pressure in Equitrans' facilities.
Equitrans shall not be obligated to lower such line pressure by
compression or otherwise to accommodate receipts from a Customer
under this Rate Schedule.
