a) Amount of Receipt Point Capacity
Disregarding differences in capacity due to fuel and unaccounted for, each
existing Shipper's contract may reserve receipt point capacity up to one
hundred fifteen percent (115%) of the MDQ, except as provided herein. The
rate for receipt capacity reserved in excess of delivery capacity is one-half
of the TF12 Base monthly reservation charge per MMBtu set forth on Sheet
No. 50. Pooling point(s) as referenced in Section 28 of the GENERAL TERMS
AND CONDITIONS of this Tariff and the deferred delivery point if elected as a
primary receipt point, are not eligible for the additional fifteen percent
(15%) of the receipt point capacity since the initial entry receipt point
into Northern's system has utilized the additional fifteen percent (15%).
However, capacity reserved at any one receipt point cannot be greater than
one hundred percent (100%) of the MDQ. Regardless of the receipt point
capacity reserved above 100% of MDQ, MDQ is the maximum daily volume of
