GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
10. GAS INDUSTRY STANDARDS BOARD ("GISB")
Transporter's tariff meets or exceeds all the Business Practices and
Electronic Communication Standards which were required by the
Commission in 18 CFR 284.10(b) in accordance with Order No. 587 issued
July 17, 1996. Transporter is hereby incorporating GISB Version 1.2 of
the definitions and/or standards described below:
1.2.2 All trading partners should accept all GISB standard data elements.
Usage should be characterized as either mandatory, conditional,
sender*s option, business conditional, and mutually agreeable.
Mandatory (M) means that the data element (information) must be
supplied in the transaction.
Conditional (C) means that the presence of data in a field is
determined by the presence or lack of data in another field within the
transmittal or related data sets.
Sender*s option (SO) means that this element is optional for the
sender to send and, if sent, the receiver should receive and process.
Business conditional (BC) means that the data element is based on
current variations in business practice. The business practice will
be described herein, with an example. Over time, GISB expects that as
business practices are standardized, elements will move out of this
category. Business Conditional elements which are not
supported/required by the receiver will be acknowledged in the
response document with a warning message code indicating that the data
elements was ignored by the receiver.
Mutually agreeable (MA) means that the data element is mutually agreed
to between trading partners. It must be presented to GISB for
technical implementation. It does not, by its definition, create a
GISB standard business practice. Usage of this element in no way can
be mandated for inclusion by either trading partner in order to
achieve a level of service.
1.2.3 Pooling is: (1) the aggregation of gas from multiple physical and/or
logical points to a single physical or logical point, and/or (2) the
dis-aggregation of gas from a single physical or logical point to
multiple physical and/or logical points.
1.2.5 A package ID is a way to differentiate between discrete business
1.3.15 When the fuel reimbursement method is in-kind, the results of the fuel
reimbursement calculation for the nomination process should be rounded
to the nearest dekatherm or Gigajoule (Canada).
1.3.16 Where fuel reimbursement is in kind, the standard fuel calculation
mechanism, as this is related to the nomination process, should be (1-
fuel %/ 100) multiplied by receipt quantity = delivery quantity.
