GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

3. MEASUREMENT REPORTING AND SCHEDULING OF RECEIPTS AND DELIVERIES (Continued)

 

3.7 Capacity Allocation, Confirmation and Scheduling Processes

 

If nominated quantities exceed stated pipeline or point capacity at any

location on Company's system for a given scheduling cycle, Company shall

attempt to allocate nominated quantities of gas as set forth in

Subsections 3.7.1 and 3.7.2 prior to confirmation with the interconnecting

parties.

 

Company shall deem nominated quantities to be scheduled once the capacity

allocation, and confirmation and scheduling processes are completed for a given

scheduling cycle.

 

3.7.1 Allocation of Pipeline Capacity

 

In those instances in which the aggregate quantity of all validated

nominations in a given flow direction exceed the physical capacity of

Company's system at a specific pipeline location or segment, Company

will allocate capacity to the validated nominations at the constrained

pipeline location in the priority categories specified below (listed

from highest to lowest).

 

(a) Firm nominations with a flow direction opposite of the physical

flow direction at a constrained pipeline location.

 

Such nomination class will be initially allocated capacity at this

priority level given that it potentially creates capacity at the

constrained location.

 

Pro rata allocation of capacity within this nomination class, if

necessary, will be based on Shipper's Transportation Quantity.

 

(b) Firm nominations with a flow direction in the same direction as

the physical flow direction at a constrained pipeline location.

 

If required, Company shall prioritize nominations within this

nomination class as follows:

 

(i) In-Path, In-Direction (IPID) firm transportation

nominations.

 

Pro rata allocation of capacity within this nomination

class, if necessary, will be based on Shipper's

Transportation Quantity.

 

If all available constrained capacity is allocated to this

nomination class, Company will cease the allocation

process at this step.

 

(ii) In-Path, Out-of-Direction (IPOD) firm transportation

nominations.

 

Pro rata allocation of capacity within this nomination

class, if necessary, will be based on Shipper's

Transportation Quantity.

 

If all available constrained capacity is allocated to this

nomination class, Company will cease the allocation

process at this step.
