GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

29. ANNUAL CHARGE ADJUSTMENT CLAUSE (ACA)

 

29.1 Purpose. Annual charges are assessed against gas pipelines by

the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) under Part 382 of

the Commission's Regulations prior to each fiscal year in order

to cover the cost of the operation of the FERC. For the purpose

of recovering annual charges, assessed Equitrans by the FERC,

this Section 29 establishes pursuant to Section 154.402 of

the Commission's Regulations an ACA Surcharge to be applicable

to quantities transported under all of Equitrans' Rate

Schedules. For the period during which this Section 29 is

effective, it is Equitrans' intent not to seek recovery of any

annual charges assessed Equitrans pursuant to Part 382 of

the Commission's Regulations and Order Nos. 472 and 472-B except

as permitted by this Section 29. This ACA Surcharge is in

addition to any amounts otherwise payable to Equitrans under said

Rate Schedules.

 

29.2 Rate Schedules Subject to ACA Surcharge. The ACA Surcharge shall

be applicable to the quantities transported under Equitrans' Rate

Schedules in FERC Gas Tariff, Original Volume No. 1.

 

29.3 Basis of the ACA Surcharge. The ACA Surcharge shall be that

increment, adjusted to Equitrans' measurement basis(dekatherms),

which has been approved by FERC Orders approving and annual

charge unit rate.

 

29.4 Filing Procedure. The initial ACA Surcharge or any subsequent

changes in such surcharge shall be filed by Equitrans at

least thirty (30) days prior to the proposed effective date

unless the establishment by the FERC of the annual charge unit

rate for a particular fiscal year prohibits Equitrans from

making a timely filing, whereupon the FERC's notice requirements

under 18 CFR Section 154.207 shall be deemed waived for purposes

of this Section 29.
