RATE SCHEDULE FT

FIRM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE

___________________________

 

1. AVAILABILITY

 

This rate schedule is available to any person, corporation, partnership or any other party

(hereinafter referred to as "Shipper") for the Transportation of gas by Great Lakes Gas

Transmission Limited Partnership (hereinafter referred to as "Transporter"), when:

 

(a) Transporter has determined that it has sufficient available and uncommitted capacity to

perform firm Transportation Service requested by Shipper; and

 

(b) Shipper and Transporter have executed a Transportation Service Agreement (Agreement),

either in the form prescribed under this Rate Schedule FT, or in the form of an Award

Acknowledgment as prescribed under this FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1, for

firm Transportation Service under this rate schedule.

 

2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE

 

Transporter shall accept for the account of Shipper at the point(s) of receipt on any Day the

quantity of gas tendered by or for the account of Shipper; provided, however, that Transporter

shall not be obligated to receive on any Day a quantity of gas in excess of the applicable MDQ

specified in the Agreement plus applicable Transporter's Use as determined in Section 27 of the

General Terms & Conditions of this FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1. Upon receipt

of such gas for Shipper's account, Transporter shall transport and deliver for the account of

Shipper an Equivalent Quantity of gas at the point(s) of delivery; provided however, that

Transporter shall not be obligated to deliver at any point of delivery on any Day a quantity of

gas in excess of the quantity specified in the Agreement applicable for each delivery point.

 

Shipper's MDQ shall be a uniform quantity throughout the term of the Agreement, except that

Transporter may, on a not unduly discriminatory basis, agree to certain differing levels in

Shipper's MDQ for specified periods throughout the term of the Agreement. Shipper's MDQ, along

with the effective period of such differing MDQ levels, shall be specified in Appendix A of the

Agreement.

 

Further, if Shipper had authorization from the Commission under Section 7 of the Natural Gas Act

(other than under Transporter's FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1) to transport

overrun gas and that Transportation Service has been converted to service under this Rate

Schedule FT, then subject to the priorities and reductions contained in Section 11 of the

General Terms and Conditions of this FERC Gas Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1, and subject

to the Shipper's Agreement under this Rate Schedule FT, the Shipper may transport the overrun

quantities that are set forth in that Agreement.

 

Service shall commence under this rate schedule on the earlier of: (i) the date Shipper first

tenders gas to Transporter for Transportation under the Agreement; or (ii) the first Day of the

Month following the Shipper's execution of the Agreement; (iii) or such other date as is

mutually agreed to by the parties, but in no event prior to Transporter's receipt and acceptance

of any necessary regulatory authorization to provide firm Transportation Service to Shipper in

accordance with the terms of this rate schedule and the Agreement.

 

Transporter and Shipper may agree, on a not unduly discriminatory basis, to contract extensions,

including evergreens, rollovers and other extensions. Any such contract extension provision

shall be specified in the Term of the Agreement.

 

Transportation Service rendered under this rate schedule shall be firm, up to the MDQ on any

Day, and shall not be subject to interruption except as provided for elsewhere in this FERC Gas

Tariff, Second Revised Volume No. 1. The MDQ shall be specified in the Agreement, and shall be

a quantity sufficient to avoid measurement difficulties relative to small amounts of gas.
