RATE SCHEDULE TF
Firm Throughput Services
7. OFFERING OF TF SERVICE.
To initiate service under this Rate Schedule TF, a valid request must be
submitted in accordance with Section 26, "Requests for Service" and Section
27, "Information Required for a Request for Service," of the "GENERAL TERMS
AND CONDITIONS" of this Tariff.
For any Shipper that requests new incremental service under Rate
Schedule TF, Shipper shall have the right to determine the initial MDQ for
one or more of the new incremental Throughput Service(s), TF12 Base, TF12
Variable, TF5 or TFF provided, however, the MDQ for new TF5 shall not exceed
thirty percent (30%) of the Total Aggregate MDQ; except where the total
entitlement level for the Shipper pursuant to previously existing
SS-1, WPS-1 and PS-1 Service Agreement(s) exceeded 30% of the total
entitlement level of all firm services, such level will be available as
TF5. (Hereinafter referred to as the grandfathered seasonal service
percentage.) The Total Aggregate MDQ is exclusive of the TFF MDQ.
The initial Market Area MDQs under the Throughput Service(s) shall
remain in effect, until revised in accordance with the reallocation
provisions set forth in Section 8, "Reallocation of TF Throughput
Levels," of this Rate Schedule.
If a Shipper has a Right of First Refusal (ROFR) or rollover right under its
service agreement, the 70%/30% relationship or the grandfathered seasonal
service percentage for TF12 and TF5 entitlement and the annual TF12
entitlement requirements (collectively, TF Requirements) must be met in any
currently effective entitlement period. Such Shippers may enter into
extensions of entitlement that become effective for some future period and
that do not meet the TF Requirements; however, at the time the extension
becomes effective the TF requirements must be satisfied.
The MDQs for each Throughput Service(s), as such are reallocated from
time to time, shall be set forth in the TF Agreement.
The minimum level of Total Aggregate MDQ applicable to a TF
Agreement under this Rate Schedule shall be 50 MMBtu per day.
8. REALLOCATION OF TF THROUGHPUT LEVELS.
Northern will notify Shipper each year on or before November 1 of the
maximum MDQ for TF12 Base, as determined in this Section 8, that will
be effective on the subsequent anniversary date of Shipper's firm TF
Throughput Service Agreement. The Total Aggregate MDQ under the TF
Agreement will remain unchanged.
