Intraday nominations from a Shipper's effective FDD, PDD or IDD accounts will
be scheduled subject to the storage parameters and available throughput
capacity. If feasible, nominations throughout the gas day will be recognized
to the extent they can be scheduled and confirmed. For firm service any such
intraday nomination may not result in Shipper exceeding its MDQ. Shipper may
nominate volumes in excess of the MDQ, but such nomination would be subject
to the terms and conditions of the TI Rate Schedule.
Northern shall have the right at any time to limit acceptance of an intraday
nomination on a non-discriminatory basis if system integrity will be placed in
jeopardy. Such limitations may include, but are not limited to, a requirement
that a receipt and delivery point must be either both in the Field Area or both
in the Market Area. Any such limitation shall be posted on Northern's
website with its justification.
29. ALLOCATION OF CAPACITY
Firm Throughput Services at Primary Points shall be scheduled first and
shall be given the highest priority. Firm Throughput Service at Alternate
Points shall be scheduled next, before interruptible volumes. Nominations
received after the nomination deadline will be scheduled after the
nominations received before the nomination deadline.
In the event capacity must be allocated on part or all of Northern's
system, then on the respective part of Northern's system, Firm Throughput
Services shall be given the highest priority for scheduling purposes.
Therefore, Northern will schedule firm throughput customers' volumes in
accordance with the provisions of Section 19, "Limitations on Northern's
Obligation to Provide Firm Service" of the GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Northern will use shipper-provided path priorities and rankings when
making reductions during the scheduling process, when the path
priorities and rankings do not conflict with other provisions within
In the Market Area, in the event more than one firm Shipper nominates the
same alternate delivery point, the point will be allocated for scheduling
purposes among the firm Shippers nominating the alternate delivery point on
a pro rata basis. In the Field Area, in the event more than one firm
Shipper nominates the same alternate delivery point, the scheduling
priority for the Shipper nominating within the contract path will be before
the Shipper nominating outside the contract path. All within-the-path
alternate delivery points will be scheduled on a pro rata basis; all
outside-the-path alternate delivery points will be scheduled on a pro rata
basis. Scheduling priority for firm service at an alternate delivery point
will be before interruptible service but after firm service at a primary
firm point. A Shipper using a primary point and nominating prior to the
nomination deadline, will be scheduled prior to interruptible service.
Shippers using alternate delivery points may bump TI Shippers at any time
in accordance with Section 28, "Nominations" of the GENERAL TERMS AND
CONDITIONS of this Tariff.
