RATE SCHEDULE FTS-4
Firm Transportation Service (with Minimum Flow Condition)
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
Transporter, subject to the following limitations:
(a) Transporter has determined that it has sufficient available and uncommitted
capacity to perform service requested by Shipper and such service is
operationally feasible; and
(b) Shipper and Transporter have executed an Agreement under this Rate Schedule, or
conformed an existing Agreement to be consistent with this Rate Schedule.
2. APPLICABILITY AND CHARACTER OF SERVICE
(a) This Rate Schedule shall apply to all Transportation Service rendered by
Transporter for Shipper pursuant to the executed Agreement under this Rate
(b) Transportation Service under this Rate Schedule shall consist of: (1) the
receipt of Gas on behalf of Shipper, (2) the Transportation of Gas, and (3) the
Tender of Gas for delivery by Transporter to Shipper, or for Shipper's account.
(c) Transportation Service under this Rate Schedule shall be firm, up to the Primary
Route MDQs specified in the executed Agreement.
(d) If Shipper fails to nominate by the Timely Nomination Cycle sufficient
quantities of Gas, up to its Primary Route MDQ, to enable Transporter to
provide FTS-4L service nominated by the Timely Nomination Cycle, Transporter
shall issue a Must Flow Order ("MFO") notice to Shipper as expeditiously as is
reasonably practicable via GEMStm or EDM, requiring Shipper to nominate at the
Primary Receipt and Delivery Points specified in the executed Agreement (or at
Secondary Receipt and Delivery Points subject to Section 2(h) below) the
quantity of Gas specified in the MFO notice. The quantity of Gas subject to
and specified in an MFO notice shall be up to but shall not exceed Shipper's
Primary Route MDQ. Within four (4) hours of receipt by Shipper of an MFO
notice, Shipper shall be obligated to submit nominations for the Service Day
and in the quantity and at the points set forth in the MFO notice. Once
scheduled, Transporter shall not be obligated to accept any revised nominations
from Shipper to the extent such revised nominations would affect Transporter's
ability to provide FTS-4L service nominated by the Timely Nomination Cycle.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Transporter shall not issue an MFO notice to
accommodate new, or an increase in, FTS-4L service nominations submitted after
the Timely Nomination Cycle.
(e) The amount of Gas specified in the MFO notice(s) shall be determined based on
nominated quantities received from the affected FTS-4L Shippers for such Day
and such amount shall be allocated to Shipper(s) on the basis of Confirmed
Price (from lowest to highest); provided, however, that in the event of an
equal Confirmed Price among Shippers, the amount of Gas among those Shippers
shall be allocated on a pro-rata basis based on Primary Route MDQ.
(f) If Shipper, on any Day, fails to comply with the MFO notice or to tender and
take deliveries of the scheduled quantities of Gas that are necessary for
Transporter to provide service under Rate Schedule FTS-4L ("MFO obligations"),
Shipper shall be subject to a penalty of twenty-five dollars ($25.00), plus the
applicable spot price index as set forth in the Agreement, for each Dekatherm
of Gas that does not comply with such MFO notice or that is scheduled but not
tendered to Transporter.
