GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

9. CURTAILMENT OF SERVICE

 

9.1 Generally. If on any day, Equitrans determines that

its system, or any portion thereof, is unable to receive, or

deliver the total requirements of gas which it is otherwise obligated

to receive, or deliver, Equitrans shall have the right to curtail,

interrupt, or discontinue service, in whole or in part, on the

affected portion(s) of its system. Such curtailment may occur for

reasons of force majeure as defined in Section 10 of the General

Terms and Conditions, or when necessary in Equitrans' reasonable

judgment to meet its system operating requirements.

 

9.2 Service Priority Under Capacity Curtailment. In circumstances

of curtailment and subject to the operating requirements of its

system, Equitrans shall reduce each Customer's scheduled service

in the following order:

 

(i) Interruptible transportation service in accordance with

the priority established in Equitrans' interruptible

transportation queue, from lowest priority to highest

priority. Where interruptible shippers share the same

queue priority, service will be curtailed on a pro-rata

basis subject to the requirements of Section 8.7 of the

General Terms and Conditions; and

 

(ii) Firm transportation service on a pro-rata basis subject

to the requirements of Section 8.7 of the General Terms

and Conditions provided however, that no firm Customer with

a Service Agreement in effect on May 21, 1996 shall be

subject to any curtailment of its contracted level

of service as a result of the injection of nitrogen into the

Shirley storage reservoir. This protection from curtailment

for existing firm Customers shall continue until

authorization is granted to terminate such service, either

under the terms of Equitrans' blanket certificate or Section

7(b) of the Natural Gas Act.
