STATEMENT OF RATES (Continued)
Effective Rates Applicable to Rate Schedules SGS-2F and SGS-2I (Continued)
(2) Rates are daily rates computed on the basis of 365 days per year, except
that rates for leap years are computed on the basis of 366 days.
Rates are also applicable to capacity release service except for short-
term capacity release transactions for a term of one year or less that
take effect on or before one year from the date on which Transporter is
notified of the release, which are not subject to the stated maximum
tariff rate. (Section 22 of the General Terms and Conditions describes
how bids for capacity release will be evaluated.) The Withdrawal Charge
and Storage Charge are applicable to Replacement Shippers bidding for
capacity released on a one-part volumetric bid basis.
(3) Transporter will file proposed tariff sheets listing the phased rates
associated with the Expansion Shippers' Capacity Demand Charge and
Storage Charge rates no sooner than 60 days and no later than 30 days
prior to the proposed effective date for each phase pursuant to the
Commission order in Docket No. CP02-384.
(4) Upon the in-service of the deliverability expansion (November 1, 2008),
the Expansion Shippers Demand Charge and the Volumetric Bid Rate
Withdrawal Charge will be effective on an interim basis until the
working gas storage capacity expansion is completed.
(5) Upon the completion of the capacity expansion, the Expansion Shippers'
Capacity Demand Charge and Demand Charge rates along with the Volumetric
Bid related storage charge and Withdrawal Charge rates will be revised
to reflect an allocation of the aggregated costs split 50/50 between the
capacity expansion and the deliverability expansion.
